Scott Frost's halftime interview during Indiana game was one for the ages
At times throughout his early run at Nebraska, Scott Frost has been known to be a little fiery during his halftime interviews. That was certainly the case during Saturday’s game against Indiana.
The Huskers dropped to 4-4 on the year following a 38-31 home loss to the Hoosiers. It was a game in which Nebraska built an early lead, but turnovers and penalties were costly throughout the rest of the contest.
Going into halftime, Nebraska owned a 21-16 advantage and still appeared to be in really good shape heading into the break. But that five-point lead wasn’t nearly good enough for Frost, who was critical of his team’s mental lapses throughout the first half.
You could sense the frustration in his voice as he went into the break. Below is the clip of the interview, shared by Husker Cuz Cast on Twitter:

Nebraska did some great things early in the game, but a fumble inside the red zone that led to an Indiana touchdown followed by a missed field goal on back-to-back drives proved to be pretty costly later in the game. Despite getting a late interception and touchdown to take that 21-16 lead into half, Frost felt like the contest should’ve been almost out of reach.
But, the Huskers allowed the Hoosiers to hang around, and fell victim to IU at Memorial Stadium.
Early this week, Frost said sometimes the coaching staff needs to “rip some tail” in order to get guys motivated and light a fire. He also said that the attitude of being “just OK” at Nebraska is not good enough.
The Huskers are back in action on Saturday, traveling to West Lafayette to take on Purdue.
