What’s your level of confidence for Nebraska to beat Minnesota if Adrian Martinez can’t go?

-Scott Frost addressed the media on Monday and didn’t have any sort of status update on the injuries for Martinez or J.D. Spielman—you know, two pretty damn important pieces of the entire team.

-Some of the fanbase has been (foolishly) clamoring for Noah Vedral to start ahead of Martinez with the struggles he’s had this year, and you just might get your chance in cold, snowy Minneapolis this weekend. What’s your confidence level for that, potentially without Spielman, too?

-More from Frost/players on Monday…

Another close game against Northwestern—but this one results in a Nebraska victory, 13-10, in dramatic fashion

-It was another pretty bizarre game in the rivalry—Adrian Martinez and J.D. Spielman left the game with injury and didn’t return; Noah Vedral came in and had to leave the field for a play when his helmet popped off and Luke McCaffrey came in for a snap;  and a fortunate no-call pass interference on a late Lamar Jackson INT helps Nebraska to beat the Wildcats, 13-10, on Homecoming

-This game will be close til the end of time. It’s just the way it is. Jake and Sip agree, though, that even with a sputtering offensive performance, you take the win and run. Celebrate, and stop nitpicking. They did something they have only done once before as a program—beat Northwestern in Lincoln.

Nebraska played a full four quarters for the first time in a long time…are you confident they can do that now more going forward?

-We’ve been waiting for that to happen, and it finally did. No TDs allowed by the defense, and another good game against the run…and we even got see backups like Rahmir Johnson and Noah Vedral play well in the 4th quarter

 

-Jake focused in on Broc Bando in his role filling in for the injured Brendan Jaimes, and he thought he performed pretty well. Eli Sullivan was great, too, helping out for Cam Taylor-Britt with the injury and also with the unit still replacing the injured Deontai Williams. How much did Saturday’s performance make you believe in depth and ability to play a full game?
