Grand Forks, N.D. -  For the first time this spring, the North Dakota football team went live during spring practice as the Green and White worked out at Memorial Stadium for the fourth consecutive day. The last four periods of the 90-minute workout were the first where defenders were allowed to take everyone but the quarterback down to the ground.

A strong North wind did not make it easy for the quarterbacks to hit on long passes, but the team's three redshirt freshman signal callers managed the best they could and had some success on short underneath routes.

Quarterbacks coach Danny Freund, who fans will hear from in today's wrap-up has said his young hurlers have exceeded expectations so far, but what makes this group so much fun to coach is they are all intelligent and hungry to learn.

Notebook
-
Head coach Chris Mussman was pleased with what he saw despite the coldest temperatures to date of the four practices thus far. He told his squad he noticed a lot of good things, especially during the live sessions.
- Senior wide receiver Blair Townsend took the hardest hit of the day from cornerback Chris Hall, but held onto the ball for about a six-yard gain.
- Redshirt freshman Kodee Varner was the lone running back participating by the time the live sessions started. Whether it was injury or class-related absences, Varner took all of the 30-plus snaps and reeled off several nice runs. His longest of the day went for 20 yards. 
- Newcomer J.J. Robertson finished off the live session with about a 10-yard gain on a reverse that first appeared as it would net negative yardage. He outraced a defender in the backfield, then made a pair of would-be tacklers miss before finally being taken to the ground.
