When Scott Frost took over the Nebraska program, an offensive rejuvenation was sure to follow.

Unfortunately for Les Miles’ son, Ben, that means that a fullback is no longer necessary, as Frost preferred an up-tempo style during his time at UCF.

As you can see in the tweet below, the younger Miles announced that he had been released from Nebraska, citing schematic differences:


Sadly, the fullback position is a dying breed in football these days, especially at the college ranks. Spread offenses and creative running plays are the new norm, while smashmouth football is becoming a thing of the past.

Where Miles ends up remains to be seen, but if a fullback can’t find a place at Nebraska, there may not be many places he can fit in these days.
