Unique spring schedule sets up nicely for Nebraska

It's the week anyone with a pulse for Nebraska football has been waiting for.

The true start of the Scott Frost era in Lincoln.

Spring ball starts on Friday for the Huskers – but two days later, it's spring break.

"I didn't want to do half of spring ball before spring break and half after," said the first year head coach. "I've seen a couple college spring breaks on MTV and I'm not sure you're going to get the most out of kids before or after that."

Frost is confident in his reasoning for the practice schedule starting so close to the break.

"With the way the rules are set up, by practicing on Friday we've been able to meet with the guys all week, which gave us a whole week of meetings to try to get them as familiar with our schemes," said Frost. "I think it's going to also be beneficial to have them get a taste of what it's like and then be able to go on spring break and come back with a little bit of an idea of what they have in front of them."

Spring break runs from March 18–25, leaving the Huskers approximately four weeks to get their work in before the annual Red–White spring game, April 21st at 11 a.m. inside Memorial Stadium.
