Scott Frost says Nebraska practiced the best they have all week…will that be evident on the field when it matters most?

-BTN’s Dave Wannstedt mentioned the other day in his Big Ten Power Rankings that Nebraska seems a little fragile right now in their first 2 games; for the first time in Jake’s life, he actually agrees with him

-Frost said on Thursday that both sides of the ball practiced very well this week after a rough loss to Colorado…is that going to be evident on the field? Does that result in a comfortable win?

-More from Frost on Thursday…

Cam Jurgens had major issues with high snaps on Saturday, and the offensive line was lackluster in general…will they figure it out or is that a concern now?

We heard from Frost, Martinez, Matt Farniok, and others about the offensive line performance, and the high snaps were certainly a point of emphasis. This offense goes so fast that timing is everything, and when the QB is concerned about a high snap, that affects both confidence and also performance

-How concerned are you about the line? What happens if high snaps are a problem again this week?
