Did the Scott Frost quote about Adrian Martinez require a stand alone article? Maybe. Probably. Did we do it? Nope.

This is why I didn’t write it. We ask. I mean, we beg for truth. We beg for insight about the football program. Then when we get it we......

Well. We react.

This is why we don’t have nice things.

There are so many angles to take this.

Frost has been extremely defensive of his quarterback from day one and has spread blame around and has largely protected Martinez. I understand it. I get it.

I’m not so interested in last year and whether Martinez actually was complacent in his preparation. What I am interested in however is if Luke McCaffrey’s emergence is the reason why he feels like he can say the above sentence.

If it is then I think Nebraska fans should be extremely happy.

I’m reading too much into it aren’t I.

The guidance says "schools are fundamental to child and adolescent development and well-being."

The AAP cites "mounting evidence" that transmission of the coronavirus by young children is uncommon, partly because they are less likely to contract it in the first place.
