Nebraska defensive backs coach Travis Fisher visited with the media following Tuesday’s fall practice. Fisher has been known for his honest critiques. He said, “This is all about work, not taking credit. This is all about work and it’s no time to give praise. It’s time to work.”
Fisher doesn’t want his older players — especially the three likely starters — to ever feel comfortable with their spot on the team. Sophomore cornerback Quentin Newsome said of his coach, “He doesn’t want anybody to get big-headed like you have a spot. You can’t get complacent. He tries to keep us going and make sure nobody really feels too comfortable. He just lets me go hard.” Fisher spoke highly of Newsome and Myles Farmer and the way they continue to improve.
Fisher said his group of defensive backs work hard everyday in practice and praised the work ethic of freshman Marques Buford who is battling back from a knee injury.
Nebraska continues fall camp as they prepare for their season opener against Illinois on August 28th.
