Scott Frost had a lot of swagger in his first 2 years at Nebraska…do people believe what he says now, though?

-Dirk Chatelain wrote about all the things Frost has said over the years, with excuses for bad losses and hype for year 2 which didn’t pan out…the swagger was awesome early on, but does anyone want to hear it now?

-Does any part of you wonder if Frost has lost confidence in his abilities? He probably did sincerely think that Year 2 was going to be a breakout year for Nebraska, and who could blame him for how Nebraska finished year 1? He’s not as brash at all now in his comments…where is his own level of confidence?

 

Tampa Bay sports are on top of the world right now…what uncommon major sports city do you wish to have success next?

Usually, it’s Boston and LA and Chicago and New York that are on top of the sports world, so it’s refreshing to see Tampa have NHL, MLB, and NFL success all at once…what other city like that would you like to see get on top of the sports world?

ESPN ranks all 130 college football teams for 2021 into 10 tiers…who does Nebraska stack up with?

-Nebraska was in Tier 6, the “Let’s Get Nuts” category which puts Nebraska with Florida State, Tennessee, Maryland, and Michigan State

-The article says Nebraska has the widest gap between expectations and reality in the nation, which is harsh, but probably true…but points out reasons for optimism and cynicism…

Unity was the word yesterday for Nebraska players and coaches on social media…are you a believer in this movement?

-Many players and coaches tweeted yesterday that they’d rather be nowhere else than Nebraska and that they believe in where this is going under Scott Frost

-This place tends to cannibalize itself and people like to complain about everything. It’s kind of terrible. So naturally, there is skepticism about the program and ‘where it’s going’ and a lot of questions about why there was a social media push yesterday to promote unity. What’s the best take on all of it?
