Former NFL QB rips Nebraska after most recent departures from program
More bad news surfaced out of Lincoln this week when three more offensive players from Nebraska decided to enter their names in the NCAA transfer portal. Quarterback Luke McCaffrey, wide receiver Kade Warner and offensive lineman Matt Farniok are all now exploring their options.
This comes in addition to top wide receiver Wan’Dale Robinson leaving the program and 4-star wide receiver and 2020 class member Marcus Fleming departing, as well. There have been some serious concerns about the state of the program under Scott Frost.
That includes former NFL and Iowa State quarterback Sage Rosenfels. He was quick to rip the Huskers after the latest trio of offensive players hit the transfer portal.
“Nebraska football reminds me of the time that Army used to have a highly regarded nationally ranked football program,” Rosenfels wrote. “[By the way], two of these players [McCaffrey and Warner] are sons of former NFL players. Their dads know a bad culture when they see one.”

Btw, two of these players are sons of former NFL players. Their dads know a bad culture when they see one. https://t.co/O8wmJJI0DQ

Nebraska has struggled in three seasons under Frost. The Huskers are just 12-20 since he took over the program and have failed to make a bowl game. Now, it seems as though the team is struggling to keep top talent in Lincoln.
The Huskers still have QB Adrian Martinez returning in 2021 and have landed former USC running back Markese Stepp from the transfer portal. There’s a lot of young, but talented, in the wide receiver room. Nebraska has skill to work with in 2021.
But there’s still clearly some concerns about the program after seeing several offensive players hit the portal. We’ll see how much of an impact it will have on the Huskers in 2021.
