Nebraska fans have been sold on Scott Frost since Day 1. After enduring two decades of mediocrity following the Tom Osborne era, the hope of restoring the Huskers into a nationally prominent program again has floated back to Lincoln.
That optimism doesn’t just include fans, as former players are also all-in on Frost and the future of the program.
Former Nebraska star defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh is one of the many former Huskers excited to see where the program goes in the coming years. He’s putting a lot of faith in Frost’s ability to produce a consistent winner.
“I think he’s a good person and I think he’ll change the program and culture and get it to where it was,” Suh said of Frost to the Lincoln Journal-Star. “I don’t know Bill Moos that well, met him one time when he was back, but I’ve heard nothing but great things from mutual friends. I know he was at Oregon, which I have a ton of ties to, and heard some good things.
“I think it’s a good situation and we’ve just got to continue to run the organization the Nebraska way. We can’t get away from that.”
Frost spent the first year at his alma mater implementing a new-look offense and preaching a winning culture. His new-look approach resulted in several players transferring throughout the year. While those departures hurt Nebraska’s depth, Frost said it was important to have a roster full of “culture keepers” rather than “culture killers.”
Nebraska is one of the most hyped teams headed into the 2019 season. CBS Sports even has the Huskers ranked in its way-too-early top 25, despite a 4-8 campaign last fall.
Support continues to pour in for Frost from fans, alumni and former players. That, in itself, is a sign that the culture of winning is returning to Lincoln.
