Nebraska head coach Scott Frost met with members of the media after Thursday’s practice. Frost spoke about the transition to a regular practice week.
“We were intentional about how we approached this week knowing that we got off an international flight and disturbed our sleep a bit,” Frost said. “It didn’t really show up for the guys. They recovered quickly and started the week well.”
Frost discussed this quarterback’s leadership Casey Thompson showed.
“I think in terms of being a team leader and a team member that just grew and grew and grew over time,” Frost said. “It’s just a common experience and going through things together. (Thompson) is doing a great job at the moment and I expect a major improvement in our offense from week one to week two.”
Frost spoke about the team’s response to Saturday’s game.
“They were frustrated,” Frost said. “They were disappointed but the confidence is there. I think they know what kind of team we have and it’s up to us to prove it. I saw nothing but motivated kids trying to improve in training.”
Frost was asked what he learned from the pressure of being both quarterback and head coach at Nebraska.
“All you can do is work as hard as you can and do the right things,” he said. “I think our kids know that. I try to share this with the children as much as possible. If they have a chip on their shoulder, I think that’s a good thing for us.
