The Nebraska football team wrapped up its second spring season practice session on Monday with an eye toward simplifying some things on offense.
Following practice, quarterback Tommy Armstrong said, "We have a bunch of young guys and last year we had a bunch of complicated stuff and we were just thinking too hard," stated Armstrong. "When it comes to being a leader and going out there and making plays, it's tough like that. But this year, we want to simplify things and make sure we are all on the same page and have receivers thinking one thing and quarterbacks thinking one thing. It's really easy."
Off the field, Armstrong has spent many hours in the film room preparing for the 2014 campaign.
"That's a major key right now. Just staying in the film room and understanding the playbook," commented Armstrong. "Just becoming a student of the game and getting better.
"Every day is a competition,” Armstrong said.” Anything can happen. Last year, my number was called. This year, I am the number one guy right now and I just want to keep that, but like I said before anything can happen."
Nebraska returns to the practice field on Wednesday for its third workout of the spring.
