Scott Frost opened his press conference offering condolences to Christian Gaylord’s family after Christian’s father died in a car accident a little over a week ago. Gaylord is a senior offensive lineman who tore his ACL in fall camp.
Frost: "I told our guys to put that one behind us fast."— Brian Christopherson (@Husker247BC) September 30, 2019
Scott Frost takes the podium for his weekly press conference: "They're just such a well coached team year in and year out."— Andrew Ward (@AndrewWardKLKN) September 30, 2019
On Northwestern. Six of the last eight meetings between the #Huskers and Wildcats have been decided by three points or less or in overtime.
The usual note that a team only plays as well as they practice
Frost says Nebraska had a “great practice” Monday. Told team to flush loss to OSU fast. All goals still out there. #huskers— Sam McKewon (@swmckewonOWH) September 30, 2019
A wideout looks to figure into the rotation more
Frost says Jaron Woodyard will get "more looks" this week. #Huskers— HuskerOnline.com (@HuskerOnline) September 30, 2019
On Ohio State
Scott Frost says Ohio State is No. 1 on his ballot. #Huskers— Parker Gabriel (@HuskerExtraPG) September 30, 2019
Frost indicated that he thought the offensive line did a decent job in opening holes for the run game but that pass protection was an issue and that it affected Adrian Martinez.
Frost: "We'll see more of that stuff moving forward. That's the fabric of what we are at Nebraska." On the Power-I offense they brought out during the second quarter last Saturday. #Huskers— Andrew Ward (@AndrewWardKLKN) September 30, 2019
Frost: "Maurice is a factor when he's on the field. We got to try to keep him on the field."— Brian Christopherson (@Husker247BC) September 30, 2019
Frost defended his sophomore quarterback when asked about his performance on Saturday. I can’t say that I disagree with the coach that all of these things had to affect Martinez, but at some point I think Husker nation expects their guy (whether that is Frost or Martinez or both) to raise all boats and get these mistakes fixed. We’ve heard a lot about leadership in the offseason, it is time to start to see it. And yes, I know that it is much easier said than done. I know I’d struggle in that situation - as would a lot of people. That is why some leaders go on to be great and build something that is transformational and others become perpetual tinkerers. I don’t think Frost will be content to be a tinkerer. He seems to understand the importance of culture; his ability to build that will be key in this rebuild.
Frost defending Martinez, said he needs to get better protection, better snaps, guys getting open. #huskers— Sam McKewon (@swmckewonOWH) September 30, 2019
On the new facilities:
Frost says Nebraska’s new facilities will be the best of the best in college football. #Huskers— HuskerOnline.com (@HuskerOnline) September 30, 2019
Frost again defended his quarterback
Scott Frost on criticism of #Huskers QB Adrian Martinez:— Jared Koller (@JKollerKLKN) September 30, 2019
"Can't believe he needs to be defended. If you know football, there's a lot of things that need to be fixed. Just the nature of the game the head coach/QB get all the praise, all the blame." Hear more today on @Channel8ABC. pic.twitter.com/b4IsCimFL3
This is fine to say, but I 100% doubt that this job isn’t any harder than Frost thought. There is always something in complex and high-profile positions like this that take a person by surprise. At least he is keeping that part internal.
Frost said the #Huskers HC job hasn't been any harder than he thought when he took it. "I don't think anybody in our building doubts where it's going and it's going to make it even sweeter when you get there."— Brian Christopherson (@Husker247BC) September 30, 2019
On how he sees the rebuilding of the program and whether it is on schedule:
I don’t have a schedule. My schedule is to get better.
Adrian Martinez DID NOT want to talk about the (crushing) loss to Ohio State. He says he's focused on practice, this next opportunity (Saturday vs Northwestern) and setting an example for his team. #Huskers pic.twitter.com/kb2zWZrnTr— 1011 NOW (@1011_News) September 30, 2019
