There was big news today, but it wasn’t what everyone expected.
THERE IS NO ANNOUNCEMENT ON THE STARTING QUARTERBACK TODAY!!!!!
This will keep everyone hanging through the weekend.
Running back Tre Bryant is leaving the team due to injuries. Bryant is a junior from St. Louis, MO, and showed promise in 2017, but experienced a knee injury after only two games.

Bryant’s knees just can’t hold up, Frost said. He’s going home and not being able to sleep at night.— Sam McKewon (@swmckewonOWH) August 24, 2018
Frost: "I feel terrible for the kid because he had a bright future in the game."— Derek Peterson (@DrPeteyHV) August 24, 2018
Says the knee situation prompted the decision. They'll be there for Tre. https://t.co/pI2ToRWv1z
You have to feel bad for the kid. He’s extremely talented, just couldn’t stay healthy. We wish Bryant the best of luck.
Regarding the Quarterback Announcement that Never Was
Frost says he knows who the quarterback is. Wants to talk to the two before announcing. #Huskers— Derek Peterson (@DrPeteyHV) August 24, 2018
Frost will make a quarterback announcement this weekend. It’s been back forth and Frost said both would play this season. #Huskers— Parker Gabriel (@HuskerExtraPG) August 24, 2018
Frost asked about parallels between Martinez-Gebbia and Frazier-Berringer. “I don’t think Tommie and Brook were best friends...the guys in our room are friends.”
Frost gives scholarships to walk-one Reimers, Mazour and Weinmaster.— Brian Christopherson (@Husker247BC) August 24, 2018
Senior wide receiver Bryan Reimers, junior running back Wyatt Mazour, and junior inside linebacker Jacob Weinmaster earned scholarships. Congratulations, gentlemen!
Frost on the new scholarship athletes. “They exemplify the walk-on program. They all came here, especially Jacob paying out of state tuition, and worked for a spot.”
Update on Dominic Watt - “It looks like he’s gonna go to jr. college.” The staff plans to stay in contact with him. “We recruited him for a reason and we’re going to stick with him.”
Dominick Watt is headed to junior college. “We fought til the end,” for him, Frost said. #Huskers— Parker Gabriel (@HuskerExtraPG) August 24, 2018
Also... linebacker Sedrick King is gone.
One roster clean-up note: Sedrick King will not be back with the football program. On track to graduate in December. Still receives a scholarship but doesn’t count against the 85 cap since he didn’t participate in any of camp. #Huskers— Parker Gabriel (@HuskerExtraPG) August 24, 2018
It’s pretty clear that Frost is “processing” a fair amount of players out of his system. Quickly. The good news is that there will be much more room much faster for the guys he wants.
That’s a lot of stuff out of a Friday practice report. I am not sure why we constantly expect Frost to name a starting quarterback.
