Last year, in Year 1 of the Scott Frost era at Nebraska, what happened? The team finished 4-8 and showed improvement as the season went on.
As it stands in Year 2, Nebraska is 4-6. Two games remain in the regular season and considering all the talent that returned on the offensive side of the ball, it’s safe to say that the improvement didn’t carry over from 2018 to 2019.
People expected more from the Cornhuskers.
That being said, what is the main issue? On Monday, Frost talked about leadership:
Frost: “We still don’t have the leadership where we need it to be.”

“Still a few fighting against it, which doesn’t help,” Frost added.
If players are truly fighting against leadership, that’s interesting. Typically that isn’t an issue. Programs have their leaders. If it doesn’t equate to wins because of talent, so be it.
But, the leaders should be known.
In Lincoln, there seems to be a disconnect somewhere. If Nebraska wants to go bowling this postseason, it may want to figure that out sooner rather than later. The Huskers need to win their final two games if it wants to play a third.
Nebraska travels to take on Maryland this Saturday.
