Despite the 0-6 start, what are you the most optimistic about for Nebraska going forward the rest of the year and into the future?

-Adrian Martinez is an easy answer, and he has shown plenty of reasons to be excited about his potential. Still makes some mistakes, but he is young…and he’s shown he is explosive. Maurice Washington is also in the same category. What beyond that, though? Is anything else a stretch at this point or are there certain things you can point to?

-If you are optimistic about the defense, what excites you? Any certain person standing out to you or is it just a belief that things will turn around soon and that guys will develop?

-More from post-practice Wednesday…
