It's Wednesday -- gameday if you're Mario Verduzco -- and that means it's time for another edition of the Husker Extra Mailbag. On Tuesday -- gameday if you're Mario Verduzco -- we had a quarterback-heavy day after practice, hearing from Tristan Gebbia, Adrian Martinez, Andrew Bunch and Noah Vedral in addition to head coach Scott Frost. Check out HuskerExtra.com for a ton of information on that front. OK, let's get to the questions: Husker Nation is excited for the new era under Coach Frost; there’s a renewed focus on conditioning, physicality and tradition.
