It has been an up and down season in Lincoln, but Nebraska AD Bill Moos is still confident Scott Frost and company will hit a realistic goal.

Entering the second season of Frost’s tenure, expectations around the program were rising throughout the country. Despite a 4-8 season in Year 1, a number of analysts predicted the Cornhuskers to compete in what appeared to be a wide-open B1G West division. Some even picked Nebraska to represent the division in the conference championship game.

Unfortunately, with three losses overall, two conference losses, and a string of inconsistent results, Nebraska is likely finished in the division race. Wisconsin and Minnesota both remain undefeated, including a win by the Gophers over Nebraska in Week 7.

While the season has not quite gone as fans would like, Moos is still confident in the direction of the program under Frost. According to Evan Bland with the Omaha World-Herald, Moos believes the goal is still “realistically” six wins for Year 2:

“This is the fourth college football program that I’ve been a part of building,” said Moos, who had stops in Montana, Oregon and Washington State. “And it takes some time. I knew it was going to take some time here as well. And I love the hype, the great interest and the exposure we’re getting across the country. But realistically year two is ‘get to six.'”

Six wins would obviously mean a bowl game which would be a nice jump over four wins from 2018. The Cornhuskers have not gone bowling since a nine-win season in 2016.

Moos went on to say that Frost is a leader who has a clear blueprint with a resume of success:

“People look to him in the huddle,” Moos said. “He’s a leader. … He’s as good as there is in regard to staying the course. He has his blueprint. It’s worked other places. His résumé is impressive. This wasn’t going to be an easy path, we knew that from the very beginning, both he and I. We’re not even through his second year and we’re making progress.”​

Hopefully, Nebraska at least takes a step forward this season by finishing with a winning record.
