LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Nebraska football players are starting to get tired of talking about the season opener. They’re ready play.

“Everybody is ready to let loose and go out there and ball,” said senior safety Cam Taylor-Britt during a Zoom press conference on Tuesday.

Head coach Scott Frost echoed his players on Tuesday as well. He’s been especially pleased with how the Huskers have handled the new protocols to hold off the pandemic.

“I think the guys are excited to play,” he said.

Frost did confirm that Nebraska held a scrimmage on Saturday, which helped him with some of the depth chart questions he’s been going over. However, Frost says he’s still not “clear” on the starting quarterback yet as Adrian Martinez and Luke McCaffrey continue to battle for that role. Frost did have some strong things to say about McCaffrey, and did say the Huskers could find another role for him if he’s not the starter.

“He’s a quarterback. Right now, our offense moves exceptionally well when he’s playing quarterback.”

Other notes from Frost’s press conference:

  • Scott Frost doesn’t like artificial crowd noise. “I think it’s annoying to have fake crowd noise in your ear the whole time.”
  • Frost said wide receivers Wan’Dale Robinson, Alante Brown and Omar Manning are all nicked up this camp.
  • Frost said a depth chart will likely be released early next week.
