If you haven’t heard by now, you’re either not paying attention or you don’t care. Scott Frost wants his Nebraska team to play a much more physical brand of football. You know, like the old days.
Frost says he wants to “beat the piss” out of teams. He wants to “hit them in the face.” Sounds an awful lot like Tom Osborne, doesn’t it?
Last season, Frost was disappointed in the attitude, confidence and discipline his team lacked, things he’s seen major changes in over the last 12 months. But just how much more physical are things getting in Lincoln?
The coaching staff has had to tell players to “gear it back” early in fall camp.
Frost said practices have been physical enough that, the last two days, the staff has had to tell guys to gear it back. #huskers

That’s the kind of attitude Nebraska had when it was running teams off the field under Osborne. Maybe it won’t happen this year, but it sure sounds like the Huskers are restoring their sense of pride on both sides of the football.
While aggressive play is good in fall camp, Nebraska also wants to get to the season as healthy as possible. Creating that balance can be difficult, but it sounds like Frost and his staff are on top of things in Lincoln.
Based on what we’re hearing out of fall camp, this could be a completely different team from the last two seasons. On both sides of the football.
