Frost Press Conference
Frost said this offensive system does "a lot of favors" for offensive linemen; will get simple looks because it's difficult to get some blitzes lined because of tempo. #Huskers— Brian Rosenthal (@GBRosenthal) March 14, 2018
Jon: A lot of favors for offensive linemen.... well, right now that sounds like a very good thing because our offensive line needs all the help it can get.
Guys out for the spring: Luke Gifford (hip), JoJo Domann (knee), Michael Decker, Sedrick King (chance to be back), Tre Bryant (chance to be back/limited), Cole Conrad (will get checked out after spring break). #Huskers— Jacob Padilla (@JacobPadilla_) March 14, 2018
Jon: Cole Conrad and Michael Decker being out is rather... troubling. On the other hand
Regarding the no cussing or screaming: "If someone misses a tackle or drops a ball they don't need to be yelled at. They need to be taught how to do it the right way so it doesn't happen again," Frost said. #Huskers— Brian Rosenthal (@GBRosenthal) March 14, 2018
Jon: If you were objective, you could consider this as “being soft”, right?
Anyone over the age of 50 will relate to you how their coach used to beat them and refuse them water and is it any wonder we are a fouled up (put the other F word in there) generation full of old, cranky people?
I don’t disagree with this approach. It’s a better approach than walking around screaming at people all day because they have a tendency to block you out and stop listening. (Hence why our old coaches had to use a baseball bat upside the head to get our attention.)
But be honest about your assessment of this statement. Are you okay with it just because Scott Frost said it? If Mike Riley was still around and he said it, you’d have a completely different reaction, right?
Biggest difference between last year’s 3-4 defense and this year’s 3-4:— Christopher Heady (@heady_chris) March 14, 2018
Frost: “Hopefully we’ll get some stops.”
Jon: HOPEFULLY? OMG!!!!!
At least he’s realistic.
Scott Frost on conference title drought: “hopefully we can win one.” References Solich, Pelini winning 9 per year.— Sam McKewon (@swmckewonOWH) March 14, 2018
“If we can get the program back to when Frank was here and Bo was here” culture should be enough to hang another banner.
Run-the-Damn-Ball guy will be happy. Coach Frost made it clear, “Our offense is always going to be committed to the run first”.
Jon: One might wonder if he said this just to make Nebraska fans happy. I’m looking forward to AIR NEBRASKA.
Coach Frost also has a (gasp) flaw...”I might know more about hockey slapshots than kicking...”
We will add more throughout the day. Feel free to add your observations and thoughts in the comments!
