Fox Sports Gets Brutally Honest About Nebraska, Scott Frost
Fox Sports got brutally honest about Nebraska and Scott Frost recently.
Coming into this season expectations were insanely high for the Huskers. Some suggested the program might even be a dark horse challenger for the Big Ten crown when it was all said and done.
None of that actually materialized, obviously.
Nebraska was a disappointment from start to finish this season, ultimately going 5-7 and missing bowl eligibility for the second consecutive year.
On Wednesday during the B1G Show, Fox Sports insider Joel Klatt analyzed where the Huskers’ season went wrong.
His assessment was brutally honest.
“I’m going to tell you the exact same thing I did about Michigan: they’re not good enough at the line of scrimmage. Period,” he said.
“It doesn’t matter who you recruit from a skill-position standpoint, it doesn’t even really matter who your quarterback is if you can’t block anybody and you can’t stop anybody from a defensive line perspective.
“That’s where Scott Frost has gotta get better.”
Despite Nebraska’s struggles, Klatt maintains that Frost is “the right guy for the job” when it comes to rebuilding the program.
“Let’s also keep in mind: they are trying to recoup from years of poor recruiting, and it’s going to take a couple of cycles,” he continued.
“I still expect and believe Frost is the right guy for the job, and in a couple of years it will be there.”
Nebraska has now gone three years without being bowl eligible. It is the program’s longest such drought since the 1960s.
