Nebraska Football Monday Press Conference: Deontai Williams Out Indefinitely and the Mullet is Gone

Jack Stoll cut his hair! The head coach announced that a starting safety underwent shoulder surgery and talked about what needs to be fixed moving forward

NCAA Football: Nebraska at Colorado Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Sigh #LiveFeedFail, so you get a Tweetcap. There were some significant announcements today, along with the usual “we have to get better at...” statements that follow a loss.

Coach Frost said that he felt like he should have committed to the run game more in the third quarter.

I think the above quote is a pretty sure sign we won’t have Pickering this weekend.

Coach Frost has made it clear that he only discusses season-ending injuries, so it is safe to assume that “foreseeable future” means that Deontai Williams is out for the entire 2019 season. Bummer. We all wish him a speedy recovery.

Noa has been the best perimeter blocker (to my eyes) so far (with Kade Warner out).

Ummm, I’m glad there is confidence in the locker room (from a captain no less) but I’d prefer this kind of talk stayed in the locker room and not at a press conference after blowing a 17 point lead and losing a game. (see below)
