Over the weekend, the Nebraska Cornhuskers suffered yet another loss, this time at the hands of the Minnesota Gophers.
During the loss, quarterback Adrian Martinez struggled en route to a 30-23 defeat. A day after the loss, head coach Scott Frost said on his television show that Martinez has been playing “a little beat up.”
Sam McKewon of the Omaha World-Herald tweeted out some of Frost’s comments from Sunday’s show.
“Scott Frost says on his TV show that Adrian Martinez is ‘playing a little beat up’ and started the game a ‘little jittery’ and ‘missed a couple he normally would make’ on the first drive,” McKewon wrote.

Martinez finished the game completing 18-of-33 for 241 yards and a touchdown. He was hit multiple times in the backfield and actually ended up with negative 17 yards on the ground as a result – sack yardage is included.
The senior quarterback thrown for 1,995 yards and 10 touchdowns with just 3 interceptions. He’s completing over 64-percent of his passes and has taken care of the football better this season. He’s also rushed for 433 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Unfortunately, if he doesn’t put together a complete game, the Huskers have very little chance of winning. The road doesn’t get any easier for Nebraska as the team faces three ranked teams in its last four games.
