Quick Hits: Les Miles, Nick Saban, and Bo Pelini

Les Miles talks about the progress his team has made after 5 practices: “We still have 10 practices to go, but I like the progress this team has made in just five workouts. I like the development of this team. Defensively, we are getting lined up, and we are making plays on the ball. We’ve made some improvement. I like where we are, but it’s early. We’re not in any way ready to play games, but there are some good things taking place out here. Special teams is covering kicks, protecting, and the punters are kicking well. We’re installing some new things with the punt – more pro style.”

Nick Saban talks about the most important thing in Spring practice: "Spring is obviously important. The most important thing about spring practice is that you get the system taught to as many people as possible, especially the young guys that haven't been exposed to it in the past."

Bo Pelini talks about Nebraska’s new offense: “You know I could sit here and talk about it for a long time, but you’ll see that when we roll that ball out there in September. Like I said it’s multiple but simple, you’ve got to be aggressive. We’re going to be an aggressive style offense period, end of story.

“There’s a lot of different ways to do that, and I’m not going to sit here and get into it and say we’re going to do this or we’re going to do that. We’re going to attack people, we’re going to get after them, and we’re going to attack them in a lot of different ways.”
