Mickey Joseph is assuming the task of trying to turn things around at Nebraska. After stepping into the interim role following Scott Frost’s firing, Joseph has already made some changes to how the Huskers do things.

Earlier in the week, Joseph revealed he was making some tweaks to the defensive staff. That includes splitting up the defensive backs with a separate coach assigned to work with the corners and another coach to work with the safeties.

During his radio appearance Thursday night, Joseph also confirmed the Huskers have ditched music during practice. His reasoning? “We bring our own energy.”

According to Joseph, that’s what players have to do in games.

We’ll see if that has any impact come game time.

Also during his radio spot, Joseph confirmed that the Huskers have removed all Blackshirt designations for the defense. Joseph maintained that decision had nothing to do with performance, it is instead about every player starting with a “clean slate” for Week 3 and beyond.
