Marcus Satterfield is already excited about the players on Nebraska’s team, not just the offense, in part because they compete, and enjoy being around each other, he said Thursday at a media availability.

Speaking about the tight ends specifically, the offensive coordinator said there are a lot of tight ends with different bodies, “That I can do cool things with.”

Satterfield was asked about the offense, and expectations, and he said the incremental progress is targeted to reach goals of making plays when needed.

“You kind of know what it’s going to look like, but you’re always going to go to the side of what you have from a personnel standpoint,” Satterfield said, via the Omaha World-Herald. “The one consistent thing that we can guarantee is we’re going to try to play clean football, protect the football. People talk about balanced offense, it’s not throw it 50%, run it 50%, it’s just times in the game we need to be able to run the ball, and we’ve got to be able to do that, at a high level. There’s going to be times in the game where we need to throw the ball, and we need to do that at a high level.”
