Lincoln - The Nebraska football team practiced for just over two hours Thursday in the Hawks Championship Center in full pads. This is the third practice of spring football for the Huskers.
Offensive Coordinator Danny Langsdorf spoke with the media after practice. He started by talking about how practices for the quarterbacks have been
"A lot further than we've been, in the past,” Langsdorf said. “They're a lot more comfortable already. We've got a lot of work to do in terms of knowing our reads and throwing accurately but I have been pleased the first three days about just their command and the knowledge that they have."
Coach Langsdorf then touched on Tommy Armstrong Jr. and what he is expecting from him this spring.
"He has to work on being more consistent,” Langsdorf said. “If he can play efficiently and take care of the ball we'll be in much better shape.”
Langsdorf added that he wants Armstrong Jr. to work on cutting the turnovers down, making faster decisions and throwing the ball accurately.
Coach Langsdorf also talked about what he has been seeing from the players working at offensive guard, including Jerald Foster and Tanner Farmer.
"I think they are in really good shape,” Langsdorf said. “They feel like it is their time to compete and have a legitament chance to play. There is a great battle going on for those guard positions. I like how both of them worked hard in the winter, they're in the best shape that they've been. I just think they have both worked hard to get to this point and compete."
