Nebraska special teams coordinator Bill Busch met with members of the media following day seven of fall camp Thursday. Busch spoke on Thursday’s practice and on the effort from the start of fall camp.
“Just got done with practice number seven,” Busch said. “Been very pleased with our effort. Effort has been tremendous on special teams in all phases. We’re trying to tell them ‘woah then go’ which means there are sometimes when we need to slow down rather than speed up and we are spending more time on that. There are no issues with getting a very interested and invested group out there in every drill that were doing. In general, were kicking, punting and snapping the ball well. No decision have been made as far as positions, but very pleased with how we got started in those phases. A lot of positives going for us right now, a lot of kids busting their tail at every position.”
Busch spoke on the changes made from last year.
“There’s probably been some changes, you always have a little bit of your own flair too when things come in,” he said. “Drill work wise if there is one theme that were trying to have is that were trying to have competitive drills, and we use the term ‘game rep’. So, the walk-through phase or three-quarter drill phase does not do us any good. So, we want to be able to have them out there and compete. Our effort is outstanding, and I really appreciate them for that and what they are doing.”
