Red Report: Plenty of movement up front as offensive linemen work to find roles
The interior of Nebraska’s offensive line is going to be a regular turnstile for the duration of spring practice.
Position coach Greg Austin has known as much since arriving here, considering all of NU’s starting experience in the middle from 2017 — Michael Decker (knee) and Cole Conrad (shoulder) — is shelved and recovering from offseason operations.
Injuries make center a tricky spot this spring, but Husker staff sees optimism up front
Nebraska head coach Scott Frost said Wednesday that, when his Huskers get to full speed on the practice field, he wants somewhere in the neighborhood of 130 to 140 snaps of either team or 7-on-7 work.
NU is going to split teams up in order to get reps for as many players as possible. It’s going to be fast and everybody is going to be fighting for jobs.
Once overlooked, Huskers’ Cole Conrad now man in the middle
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska's Cole Conrad hopes his journey from small-school football star with no scholarship offers to starting center in the Big Ten can inspire players who feel as if they have been cheated by the sport.
LINCOLN — At the end of a game full of tough sledding, Nebraska running back Terrell Newby took a shotgun handoff, swept to his right, found a perfect block from right tackle Cole Conrad, cut slightly right just after clearing Conrad’s rear end, then back left, splitting two defenders as he accelerated for a 63-yard touchdown.
