Scott Frost on Nebraska's struggles: 'I've been doubted in this state before'
Nebraska coach Scott Frost is calling his shot.
After the Huskers’ 26-20 loss to Iowa on Friday afternoon, Frost addressed the elephant in the room: the state of Nebraska’s program.
“I’ve been doubted in this state before, and I’m sure there are some [doubters] out there right now,” Frost said. “But I know what happened last time. It’s going to happen again.”

Frost is referring to his senior season at Nebraska in 1997, when he led the Huskers to an undefeated record.
However, things are looking bleak for Nebraska as it currently stands. The Huskers are now 10-19 with Frost at the helm, and Ahman Green is not walking through that door.
It’s likely Frost will get more time to figure things out, though. He signed a 2-year contract extension in November of 2019 and is tied to the university through 2026.
Even without the pandemic causing financial stress on the Huskers (and every other college football program), it’s likely he would have received another year.
Nebraska has two regular season games remaining — at Purdue and then at home vs. Minnesota. The Huskers will need to win all of its remaining contests to avoid finishing under .500 for fourth straight season.
