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.
Scott Frost notes Nebraska had only four of 13 possessions against Colorado in which the #Huskers had no sacks, penalties or TFLs. "And we scored on all four," Frost said.— Brian Rosenthal (@GBRosenthal) September 9, 2019
Coach Frost said that he felt like he should have committed to the run game more in the third quarter.
#Huskers coach Scott Frost says he's not sure if NU will have kicker Barret Pickering this week. Doesn't want to leave him on the depth chart if he might not be the guy.— Evan Bland (@EvanBlandOWH) September 9, 2019
I think the above quote is a pretty sure sign we won’t have Pickering this weekend.
Frost: "Our margin for error is pretty small right now."— Derek Peterson (@DrPeteyHV) September 9, 2019
Said the offense played three strong quarters and the defense played three strong quarters. They need to play four. Says there needs to be a sense of urgency and the offense needs to go out with more purpose. #Huskers
Scott Frost said Northern Illinois flies around "like a swarm of bees or fire ants or something." Says #Huskers will be facing a bunch of moving targets to block. Offensively, he said NIU has good receivers and a QB who can make plays with his feet.— Brian Rosenthal (@GBRosenthal) September 9, 2019
Frost said the #Huskers expect Kade Warner back pretty quickly.— Brian Christopherson (@Husker247BC) September 9, 2019
The penalty on the Nebraska sideline on the fumbled Colorado kickoff return was for a staff member (not Frost), the coach said, for bumping into an official near the pile.— Mitch Sherman (@mitchsherman) September 9, 2019
Deontai Williams had shoulder surgery and is done for the foreseeable future. #Huskers— Brian Christopherson (@Husker247BC) September 9, 2019
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.
Frost said he's really surprised the ball hasn't found senior WR Kanawai Noa yet through two games. Said he did some really good things -- route-running and blocking -- against CU. By the Journal Star's count, Noa's been targeted five times but hasn't had a real catchable chance.— Parker Gabriel (@HuskerExtraPG) September 9, 2019
Noa has been the best perimeter blocker (to my eyes) so far (with Kade Warner out).
William Przystup with a funny moment after being told he was now second on the depth chart at place-kicker. "I am?" Smiled and said he better get practicing some more.— Brian Christopherson (@Husker247BC) September 9, 2019
Darrion Daniels said one lesson he learned from his former coach, Mike Gundy, was the only way to get over a loss is with a win.— Sam McKewon (@swmckewonOWH) September 9, 2019
Nebraska offensive co-captain Matt Farniok on the loss to Colorado: “That third quarter, it wasn’t good. It wasn’t us... For whatever reason, we throttled down.” pic.twitter.com/3DsUjsXj0M— Mitch Sherman (@mitchsherman) September 9, 2019
Matt Farniok giving major praise to leadership of sophomore QB and captain Adrian Martinez. "He doesn't point fingers. He'll pin it on himself before he will anyone else." #Huskers— Brian Rosenthal (@GBRosenthal) September 9, 2019
Farniok sees Dedrick Mills making breakaway runs in practice. The fact he's not doing it in games is the fault of the offensive line, Farniok said.— Steven M. Sipple (@HuskerExtraSip) September 9, 2019
#Huskers QB Adrian Martinez says the critical thing in getting the offense rolling is getting that first first down. Hard to get into flow and tempo of offense before that.— Evan Bland (@EvanBlandOWH) September 9, 2019
Adrian Martinez takes the podium. He says he trusts Scott Frost's play calls, even the ones in overtime that were conservative in nature.— Steven M. Sipple (@HuskerExtraSip) September 9, 2019
"We as players have to make it work."
Adrian Martinez said on the first play of OT, he was “tuned up” - coached - all week to give on that run, not read for a keep. #huskers— Sam McKewon (@swmckewonOWH) September 9, 2019
#Huskers Mo Barry on 2017 loss to N Ill.: "I look back at that loss and I think we didn't give them the respect they deserve. Practice was loose... people (thinking) we should beat them by 40. Every team we face this year we're going to give them the respect they deserve."— Eric Olson (@ericolson64) September 9, 2019
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)
