Nebraska is trying to do everything it can to get the stench of Scott Frost’s tenure off of it.

Huskers athletic director Trev Alberts fired Frost after a 45-42 home loss to Georgia Southern, and he’s now on the hunt for a new coach who can provide the program with a different identity and direction. Speaking of identity, Nebraska’s mascot, Herbie Husker, is also going to be headed down somewhat of a new path.

Recently speaking on his radio show, Alberts announced that Cornhusker fans can expect a “slightly modernized” version of the original Herbie Husker in early 2023. Recent Nebraska mascots have been Lil’ Red and later a Herbie Husker with a button-up red shirt and jeans.

While Nebraska’s at it, perhaps a new fight song is in order as well. Perhaps an absolute banger about corn.
