Nebraska coach Scott Frost has seen success. He had plenty of success as a player. And, as a coach, success has followed him as well.
Frost turned UCF around very quickly. It took only two years for him to make the Knights a perfect team — from an overall record perspective anyway.
At Nebraska, he hasn’t had the same level of success. In Year 1, the Huskers went 4-8 under Frost. As of now, they’re 4-6.
So, what’s the difference? Maybe at UCF, players got more sleep.
Well, at least according to Frost, sleep is extremely important:
The biggest predictor of performance on the field, Nebraska's Scott Frost says, is "sleep." He wants players getting 8-9 hours per night.
"We can't tuck them into bed at night," Frost said.
If you come to enough of these press conferences, everything will eventually come up.

We’ve all read and heard what a good night’s rest can do for you. It is important. Is it the biggest indicator to performance on the field?
Maybe. Maybe Frost knows the ultimate key to success.
Just get some “Z’s.”
