Although the Nebraska football team is coming off another loss, head coach Scott Frost believes his team got better over the past week. NU fell to 0-5 this past Saturday with a 41-24 setback at Wisconsin.
"I see the guys excited that they're getting better," Frost said at his Monday press conference. "I see the guys excited that they're moving forward. Sometimes you've got to lose a couple guys to get that point. Sometimes you've got to bench a couple guys to get to that point. The whole attitude of everybody around here, I feel like we've finally turned a corner."
Despite losing their program-worst 9th game in a row & still yet to earn a win in the Scott Frost era, the Big Red believes it's moving in the right direction.
"Our team definitely has a bit of new energy to it," freshman quarterback Adrian Martinez said on Monday. "I feel like this past week we were really gelling well."
"Something's changed," said Frost. "It really changed after the Purdue game. Changed even more last week. I saw guys bonding together, having fun out there, everybody kind of excited to go to battle. I think getting to that turning point where the team wasn't going to put up with any more of the culture killers and we're going to become culture keepers."
This Saturday at Northwestern, Nebraska will try to avoid a 0-6 start for the first time in program history. Recent history might be on the Huskers' side as the road team has won the last four games in the series.
"We just need to keep preparing and keep believing in ourselves," said Martinez. "Just go into each week knowing we can win this game."
Nebraska plays at Northwestern Saturday starting at 11 a.m.
