Nebraska coach Scott Frost addressed the media Monday morning following Saturday's 41-24 loss to Wisconsin. While Nebraska is currently 0-5, Frost started the press conference by saying Nebraska has "been really close a bunch of times" to winning.
Frost also addressed freshman quarterback Adrian Martinez, crediting him for handling everything well so far. Nebraska knew there would be growing pains with a true freshman quarterback, but Frost believes he's growing into a special quarterback for the Huskers.
"He gets better every week," Frost said.
As for the running back position, Frost noted that while Devine Ozigbo and Maurice Washington are at the top of the depth chart, he's ready to get Wyatt Mazour more involved.
"Wyatt Mazour is a guy we trust," Frost said.
He also noted that Wilbon has been practicing well and would be ready to go if called upon. Jaylin Bradley is considered the No. 5 option at this point.
A hot topic around Nebraska has been the number of penalties the Huskers have received so far this season. Frost said on Monday that many of the penalties have been dumb.
"We deserve a lot of the ones we got," Frost said.
Getting better at each position and technique will help overall.
Frost ended his time at the podium addressing the recent departures on the team. He said that sometimes you have to lose a couple of guys and bench a couple of guys to get where you need to go.
While it's been a whirlwind, those departures and losing games due to self-inflicted issues has finally helped the team understand and turn the corner.
"I see the guys excited that they're getting better," Frost said.
