Mario Verduzco says that both he and Adrian Martinez were “piss poor” against South Alabama… will we see last year’s Adrian this weekend?

Verduzco said Wednesday that Martinez was doing things in the game that he didn’t do all fall camp…. bad things and that he had 24 hours to mourn over the performance before he got back on track for this week? Practice has been a lot better, will that show in Boulder?

Also… more on this high snap thing. Verduzco conformed to a certain degree what Jake thought about the confidence of Martinez being rattled with high snaps, and sometimes even jumping for a snap when he didn’t have to.. do you think Adrian fully trusts his center?

More audio from post practice…

Depth charts are out for Husker football and Scott Frost speaks…what are the biggest newsmakers?

-What were the surprises on the depth chart? Maybe not ‘surprises,’ but Collin Miller listed as a starting ILB (with Will Honas getting the OR); Caleb Tannor gets a starting OLB spot, Jaevon McQuitty is JD Spielman’s backup…and we also have a starting punter listed!

-Also, Blackshirts announced…who all got one on defense? And great comments from Scott Frost on former Husker coming in to discuss what those mean….Jay Foreman!!

-More from Frost…

6:25 – We’ve discussed offense and defense when it comes to getting Nebraska over the hump this year…but how much does special teams need to improve, and how much can it?

-We still go back to 2014 for the last time Nebraska had a big-time returner, with Demornay Pierson-El…since then? Not much. A decent return here or there, but in general—disappointing.

-How much emphasis should there be on finding solid returners in the Fall? Not just one guy—multiple. It’s a phase of the game that for some reason has been below average for 4 straight years at Nebraska. Can they emphasize the return game in camp? And who punts this year? Pickering solid at kicker….
