Three seasons into his tenure at Nebraska, Scott Frost hasn’t posted a winning record as the head coach of the Huskers. With three losing seasons and no bowl appearances, there are a growing number of eyes on Lincoln entering Year 4.

One former Husker says that Frost is still the right guy for the job and that the program is improving, even though it may not be quite as apparent as some would like.

“Frost has this program in the right direction, even though it may not look like it,” said former offensive lineman Brenden Jaimes.

Jaimes declared for the NFL Draft following the 2020 season.

In three seasons in Lincoln, the Huskers are just 12-20 under Frost. They have yet to make a postseason appearance and have no wins over biggest rival Iowa. Though recruiting classes have all been strong under Frost, the results haven’t come on the field this year.

Life won’t get any easier for Nebraska in 2021. In addition to playing Michigan and Ohio State in crossover games, it also plays Oklahoma in a nonconference game and will open the season on the road against Illinois, which made a coaching change to bring in Bret Bielema before the final game of the 2020 season.

Match that with division games against Northwestern, Iowa, Wisconsin and others and getting to 6-6 is a pretty tough task. But a postseason appearance would be a huge step in the right direction, and would serve as the evidence the program needs to show the Huskers are moving in the right direction.
