The Big Ten conference began its annual “Big Ten Media” days Thursday as coaches and select players from all 14 Big Ten football programs meet in Indianapolis to visit with media and preview the upcoming college football season. Nebraska was among the teams featured Thursday along with Minnesota, Maryland, Penn State, Illinois, Northwestern, and Michigan.
Nebraska head football coach Scott Frost took the podium late Thursday morning to take questions from the media. Frost expressed his excitement about this year’s team and said it is “without a doubt” the most confident he’s been in a team since he has been head coach.
The topic that was perhaps discussed the most by all coaches Thursday was the impact Name, Image, Likeness would have on their program. Frost said he is excited about the possibilities of NIL for college athletes and is confident that Nebraska will handle it in the right way.
Adrian Martinez enters the season once again as Nebraska’s starting quarterback. Martinez has experienced the high and lows of being a college football quarterback. Frost spoke very highly of Martinez and feels his signal caller is at a good place entering the season.
Nebraska will begin its season August 28th on the road against Illinois. The Illini will be led by first year head coach Brett Bielema. Kickoff is scheduled for Noon CDT. Once again this year, all Nebraska football games will be broadcast on KBBN 95.3 FM proud to be an affiliate of the Husker Sports Network.
Big Ten media days will conclude Friday featuring Ohio State, Iowa, Michigan State, Rutgers, Wisconsin, Indiana, and Purdue
