Nebraska finished the season with a disappointing 4-8 record, but head coach Scott Frost remains optimistic moving forward.

There’s no denying the Huskers improved as the season went along with four wins over their last six games of the season. The two losses in that stretch were by a combined eight points to Ohio State and Iowa.

Now, the team is moving forward with preparation for next season, and a big part of that will be the offseason conditioning program. With a year under their belts working with strength coach Zach Duval, Frost expects the Huskers to be better suited for the program this time around.

Brian Christopherson with 247 Sports shared Frost’s comments:

“I think they know what they’re in for when they get back, but I think they’re looking forward to it,” Frost said.

He went on to explain how the players were not quite ready last year as Duval tried to slowly ramp up the program:

“With a year under their belt with Zach (Duval), we’re way ahead of where we were a year ago, and I can’t wait to get started with them…Zach tried to gently lead them into our offseason program last year,” Frost said during an appearance on the Husker Sports Network. “I don’t think the guys were ready for it, and this year they’re going to be ready for it.”

Hopefully the work put in during the spring will pay off in a big way next fall.
