After last weekend’s crushing loss in the northwest, fans of Nebraska Haskers are beginning to lose patience with the team’s head coach, Scott Frost. Now in the third year of the Haskers, Coach Frost still has to prove that he can make the team competitive in the Big Ten. Nebraska’s 2020 season began with a loss in their opening game against the Ohio Bakkiz, and their final loss to Northwestern has fans wondering what Coach Frost’s tactics look like. Head Coach Haskers has named Adrian Martinez and Luke McCaffrey as quarterbacks for the team’s first two games, but he may have to name a permanent starting player for next Saturday’s game against Penn State.
Martinez fought in his third year against the Haskers.
As reported by 247 Sports, Coach Frost refused to answer questions about the controversial Nebraska quarterback in his last interview. However, he admitted that the participating players will have to fight for the right to start Saturday’s game against Penn State at practice this week. Martínez was the undisputed Nebraska quarterback in the team for the first two seasons, but Scott Frost was disappointed with his performance in those first two games. The third-year head coach urged Martinez to be more accurate in his scopes and to process information quickly when he is in the center. In Saturday’s loss in the northwest, Martinez stormed 102 yards in 13 flights, but made only 12 out of 27 passes in 125 yards.
The quarterback’s fight forced Frost to turn to McCaffrey in the second half and try to win the game.
McCaffrey can play Penn State.
Frost praised a newcomer in a red shirt for his beautiful personality. Frost thinks McCaffrey has a lot of the energy and passion that brings his teammates together.
In a short episode shot from the northwest side, McCaffrey accelerated the pace of Hasker’s attack and his head coach believes he can control the game at a higher pace than Martinez. Despite his appreciation for McCaffrey at his press conferences, Scott Frost refuses to call him his starter.
But that could change in Saturday’s next game against Penn State.
Haskers will be under pressure to win the game, especially since Nittany Lyons currently has a 3-0 record. Coach Frost may be forced to give up his double quarterback system and opt for a permanent starting quarterback. After losing the first two games, the third-year head coach is under pressure, and a home victory over Penn State will help silence his skeptics. However, the choice between McCaffrey and Martinez will not be easy. Some fans have suggested that Coach calls Frost Martinez as a starter and uses McCaffrey as a wide receiver for the offense. If Coach Frost continues to abuse his double quarterback system, he may end up in a hot spot during the season.
