Nebraska wrapping up their second full week of spring practice under head coach Scott Frost. Usually at this point in spring ball you start to see some fatigue, some mental errors. Not the case for the Huskers as their head coach showered them with praise after a morning session that lasted over 2 hours.

"Today was far and away our best day as a team," said Frost. "I saw great enthusiasm. We had a competition day so we kept track of every rep offense or defense, it came right down to the end. I'm seeing some guys start to get it. Guys starting to understand our schemes on both sides of the ball and what we're looking for from a pace standpoint and an effort standpoint. We talk all the time about setting a new standard daily and trying to beat that standard. We definitely had our best practice today so it's going to be a challenge Saturday to come out and be better than that."

There's no shortage of position battles to be sorted out especially at quarterback. Frost says the there hasn't been enough separation for him to name a favorite.

"They are all doing really good things. Been happy with the quarterback group," Frost said. "They've got the best quarterback coach in the country and I see improvement every day. I thought we had our best practice as a quarterback group today. Every one of those guys is making plays and we're trying to split up the reps evenly now."

A big emphasis for the new coaching staff is increasing the level of physicality in each practice. Something they've adopted from a Husker legend.

"Coach Osborne came down to UCF and spoke to us before the year. I knew how we practiced when I was here, but listening to him talk, back in the 90s we would go during the season, we would do live reps on Tuesday and some live reps on Wednesday," Frost told the media. "I remember as a player thinking that kept us so much sharper."

The anticipation for the Nebraska football program just keeps building and building and building. For the fans, the first chance they'll get to see the new look Huskers will be in 18 days for the spring game inside Memorial Stadium.
