Nebraska Football: Scott Frost Presser – Maurice Washington Status, Media Might Be Irksome

Jon Johnston Below is the transcript from today’s weekly head coach press conference. It’s clear that Maurice Washington won’t be playing anytime soon, but that he’s not entirely off the team. Good? Bad? Indifferent? It’s not good that Washington isn’t playing because as we saw early in the season, he’s an explosion of an offensive player. It’s bad that Frost has stuck his neck out for the guy and from what we can tell, Washington hasn’t responded in like kind, i.e., he’s not doing the...

We want conference championships. We want National Championships. We want 1st Team All-Americans and Hikesmans Trophies. We want legendary coaches and a...

Nebrasketball Player Profile: Samari Curtis
