Defensive coordinator Erik Chinander and defensive coaches were at the podium today. One key cog in the defense hasn’t been cleared for fall camp. As with all of my practice report “quotes” these are typed in real time and are not exact – they are the best I can do with how quickly they answer and move on to different topics. If you want me to clarify one or get exact wording on one, let me know in the comments.
There wasn’t much meat today and the live stream only included Coach Chinander. I didn’t get to hear any of the other defensive assistants. There were a few tweets and I included them at the end.
Erik Chinander
The live stream didn’t start right away, so I missed the first few minutes.
On JoJo Domann
“He can do a lot of things…you can blitz him, you can cover him, he gives you a lot of flexibility…”
Unfortunately, it appears he won’t be on the practice field right away.

Jovan Dewitt said today that JoJo Domann hasn’t been cleared for preseason camp yet. Didn’t elaborate on the reason. #Huskers— Parker Gabriel (@HuskerExtraPG) August 5, 2019

On which offensive players that are showing up
Adrian Martinez is giving us a lot of problems, Wandale Robinson is giving us a lot of problems…their [the offense] skill players look good
Other names were mentioned including JD Spielman and Dedrick Mills

Darrion Daniels compared Dedrick Mills today to Chris Carson—the Seahawks RB who rushed for 1,151 yards and 9 TDS last season in Seattle. Was a teammate at Oklahoma State. #Huskers— Jake Sorensen (@937JakeSorensen) August 5, 2019

My favorite quote of the day
“We’ve played a lot of underwear football”
On generating turnovers
“I think we’re way ahead, we’ve grabbed some interceptions, ripped some balls loose – if that continues we can be a good turnover unit”
But he went on to say that if they get satisfied or complacent, they won’t.
On focus
“To me, the hardest thing as a player is to dial in during walkthroughs. There’s been tremendous improvement. I’m not seeing wandering eyes and not seeing guys poking their buddy and giggling – the focus is good.”

That DB room does not lack in swag or confidence. #GBR— Hail Varsity (@HailVarsity) August 4, 2019

Dewitt won’t be able to produce saliva for up to two years because of his treatments. He’s got a container of water on his back and a blue tube to drink from over his right shoulder. Said he goes through about two gallons a day.— Mitch Sherman (@mitchsherman) August 5, 2019

Quinton Newsome has made big early impression in camp — biggest among the four incoming freshman defensive backs, according to Travis Fisher. #Huskers— Steven M. Sipple (@HuskerExtraSip) August 5, 2019

A phrase to describe the play of the Nebraska defensive line? “Nasty tenacity,” says Darrion Daniels. Pretty clear from day 1 with the media that his leadership role has only grown over the summer.— Mitch Sherman (@mitchsherman) August 5, 2019
