Apologies all around in Nebraska locker room following loss to Indiana
After a tumultuous weekend in Lincoln, it sounds like there’s been some heart-to-heart conversations in the Nebraska locker room.
Monday, players met with the media to discuss Saturday’s 38-31 loss to Indiana, as well as preview the upcoming game against Purdue. Running back Dedrick Mills said that, on Monday, Frost had a meeting with the players to apologize for “losing his cool” on the sidelines during the game against IU.
According to Christopher Heady of the Omaha World-Herald, Mills told reporters that some players also apologized to Frost for also losing their cool. Frost was the only coach in the meeting with the players.
Dedrick Mills says Scott Frost had a meeting with the players this morning and apologized for losing his cool on the sideline on Saturday. Mills said some players apologized to Frost and the team for doing the same.

At halftime of the game Saturday, Frost said in an interview he was tired of his team being “so dumbass stupid” in certain situations with bad penalties. After the game, he also criticized players for wearing hoodies while warming up.
Nebraska dropped to 4-4 on the season with Saturday’s loss to the Hoosiers, but with four games left are still in great shape to earn a bowl bid. If the Huskers get to six wins, it’ll be an improvement on last year’s 4-8 campaign.
The Huskers have struggled with consistency early this season, but will get another opportunity to get a big win this weekend against Purdue and get back above .500.
