Scott Frost Has Message For Nebraska Fans
Scott Frost has a message for Nebraska fans.
That message? Stay patient.
Frost’s first two seasons at the helm of the Huskers football program did not go as planned.
After a lot of hype and hoopla surrounding his arrival, Frost has ultimately disappointed up to this point. Thus far, he has gone 9-15 in his tenure.
In 2019, the Huskers finished 5-7 on the year and went 3-6 in their own conference. Moreover, the team also failed to make a bowl game for the third consecutive season.
As if all that was not bad enough, Nebraska also experienced its fourth losing campaign in the last five years.
This week, Frost appeared on the Husker Football Show and preached patience for all the fans out there.
“We’re starting to build a team that’s our team,” he said.
“I’ve been in to watch them,” Frost continued. “Maybe — maybe for the first time since I’ve been at Nebraska, the culture’s about there.
“Watching the guys work out — we still have a long way to go, we’ve got to get bigger, stronger, faster, better, we’ve still got to execute — but I love the attitude in there.”
The one big thing that is working in Frost’s favor is that he is recruiting well. His last two classes have both ranked in the top 20, and each one ranked fourth in the Big Ten.
If those recruits pan out, Frost really can right the ship in the way he has insisted he would over the past few season.
Also working in Frost’s favor is Nebraska’s schedule in the first half of 2020. The team’s first seven outings are extremely winnable – before things ultimately get a little tougher at the end of the year.
The Huskers will close out the year with showdowns against Ohio State, Iowa, Wisconsin, Penn State and Minnesota.
That is tough.
That said, is Nebraska finishes the season with seven or eight wins – that will be a huge improvement over where the program has been recently.
