Scott Frost Cares Like We Do and The Morning After: Purdue

Callahan? Pelini? Riley?

NCAA Football: Purdue at Nebraska Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

Did you ever feel like you cared more about Nebraska football than Bill Callahan? What about Bo Pelini?

Mike Riley?

I think the answer to all three of those questions is a resounding “Yes.” At least it is for me.

Now what about Scott Frost? Do you think you care more about Nebraska football than him?

I don’t think so.

If you haven’t already, take a few moments and watch this video, courtesy of Nebraska 24/7, of Scott Frost’s post game press conference.

I think he probably cares more than you. And that is why he chose to come back home to Nebraska instead of staying at UCF. I think staying at UCF would have been easier, but he chose the more difficult road.

And boy is that road looking harder and harder.

And just like Coach Frost is looking for players who love football and that want to go to battle for Nebraska, as fans we should take solace in the fact that the man who was hired to get us out of this mess will do whatever it takes to make Nebraska a winning program again.

I have no doubt Frost will be successful because for once in a long time we have a coach here who cares just as much as we do.

Frost’s words elicit hope, but historic loss makes job that much tougher - Steven Sipple: Lincoln Journal-Star

Sometimes in the midst of small talk, somebody says something that stops you in your tracks.

It happened to me at Cheddar’s in Lincoln the other night.

Frost: Huskers look ‘like one of the most undisciplined teams in the country’ in home loss - Parker Gabriel: Lincoln Journal-Star

Look at the raw numbers, and it would be almost beyond comprehension to imagine a playcaller as disgusted as Scott Frost was Saturday afternoon when he stepped to the podium at Memorial Stadium after Nebraska’s most recent loss.

Emotional Frost says lack of discipline on his team 'kills me' - Brian Christopherson: Husker 24/7

Scott Frost’s voice wavered as he spoke, the pain of another Saturday’s wound dripping off each word.

It was the kind of deep, raw emotion that comes when a person knows there are so many people counting on you to set something right. And believing you will. And yet...

Martinez ‘grew up’ in loss to Boilermakers - Michael Bruntz: Husker 24/7

Adrian Martinez played his best game as a Nebraska quarterback, but it wasn’t enough to overcome mistakes and an efficient Purdue offense in Saturday’s 42-28 loss.

Nebraska Is Failing Football Math and That Adds Up to 0-4 - Brandon Vogel: Hail Varsity

Nebraska, right now, is quite bad at football math. It’s bad at other things, too, but right now it’s the math that matters most. The Huskers are bad at balancing equations. Except when they’re good. When they’re good at balancing football equations it has tended to be at exactly the wrong time.

With Huskers’ Losses and Mistakes Pilling Up, Scott Frost Seems Fed Up - Derek Peterson: Hail Varsity

Scott Frost is fed up.

That much was evident following a 42-28 loss to Purdue on Saturday. The defeat dropped Nebraska to 0-4 (0-2 in Big Ten play) in Frost’s maiden voyage and meant the Huskers have now lost eight straight games for the first time in program history. Afterward, Frost was as raw as he has ever been as a head coach.

Nebraska Undisciplined, But Scott Frost Still Sees Plenty of Warriors - Erin Sorensen: Hail Varsity

Nebraska is 0-4. There’s really no sugar coating that. Coach Scott Frost wasn’t in the mood to sugar coat anything after Saturday’s 42-28 loss to Purdue, especially when he said he has players who look like they “love losing.”

Frost has an undisciplined team. He knows it. He said it.

Purdue 42, Nebraska 28: All About Recovery - Travis Miller: Hammer & Nails

Last week Purdue was pretty much in control throughout. Boston College scored on its second drive to tie it, but from there Purdue’s defense put on the clamps and didn’t give up anything until late in the fourth quarter.

Today was different. It was about recovery. Purdue had to answer a lot of different challenges throughout. There is no question Nebraska is not the Nebraska of old. This lose marked the first time in their history they have lost eight consecutive games. Still, there is some cachet in Nebraska. They have a passionate fanbase that makes it tough to play.
