“You hit reset. So I told the guys, let’s hit reset. I asked the o-line, how many times have we false- started this year? They said, ‘Too many coach.’ I said, ‘No, zero. It’s not a problem.’
“I want them to stop focusing on the problems and I want them to start focusing on what they need to do to win the game. They came out and played well last week, so we’re hitting reset again. We haven’t given up any flea flickers, we haven’t missed any PATs. It’s not a problem, and we’ll go get our job done.”
Nebraska, of course, lost to the Wolverines after junior quarterback Adrian Martinez lost a fumble with 1 minute, 45 seconds remaining deep in NU territory, which set up Jake Moody’s game-winning field goal with 1:24 to go.
Frost also said he and Alberts had talked about being hard on a team when it’s having success and showing love to it when it fails. Alberts recalled working along side former UNO hockey coach Dean Blais, who took that sort of approach.
“I’d go into the locker room and we’d just won 5-1 against a team we weren’t supposed to beat, against North Dakota … and Dean would walk in there and just rip the team,” Alberts said. “And I was so confused, like, how in the world is he mad? We just won 5-1 and it was the best game we ever played. He’d walk out and wink at me, ‘I don’t want them comfortable.’ There’d be times where we’d look so bad. We couldn’t skate with a puck at our feet and we’d lose 7-1 and he’d go tell them, ‘Boys, we’re close.’
