Nebraska head coach Scott Frost spoke to the media at his weekly Monday press conference following Saturday's tough loss to Troy at home and ahead of Saturday's matchup with Michigan.

Frost said quarterback Adrian Martinez did practice Monday, but whether or not he plays Saturday is still up in the air. 

He said the team needs him for the rest of the season and the rest of his career, so he will not play until the trainers tell him there is no chance of further injury.

Frost said it's not one thing that he can pin point that is going wrong, but a bunch of little things.

"Champions make good decisions," Frost said. "Average people, average teams don't make those decisions. Little things lead to big things and we're going to get it right."

The coach also noted that Monday's practice was one of the best he's seen thus far. 

"I did see a great practice today," Frost said. "I saw guys practicing with an intention to be great. I thought it was our best Monday. Just kind of a different mindset today and I hope that carries over."

Frost also noted that the upcoming matchup with Michigan is going to be much tougher than the competition Nebraska has faced in its first two games of the season.

"This team is considerably better, in my opinion, than the two teams we just played and didn't beat," Frost said. "This is a huge task and we're going to have to play a perfect game and get a lot better in a week to come out on top in this one."
