Kirk Herbstreit Is "Excited" To Watch This Coach Make His Program "A Powerhouse"

Kirk Herbstreit thinks a team could be out of the playoff.

Nebraska football is entering an important Year One under new head coach Scott Frost. The enthusiasm around the program is high.

Husker fans are expecting Frost will get the job done at his alma mater. They're longing for the days when Nebraska was a consistent top-10 program.

There has been some debate among college football media and fans about whether or not Nebraska is capable of being a national power and national title contender anymore. There are interesting arguments on both sides.

It seems like ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit is a believer in Frost. He tweeted today that he is "excited to see" him bring Nebraska back to being a "powerhouse."

"Rewatching the @B1Gfootball media day coaches pressers," said Herbstreit. Has there ever been a coach more representative of his school and program than @coach_frost at @HuskerFBNation?!? Excited to see him bring Huskers back to being a powerhouse year in and year out. #AllBusiness" 

That tweet should get Nebraska fans fired up.

While many expect Frost will take some lumps in year one, a path to a bowl game is possible. The Huskers have brutal road trips to Michigan, Ohio State and Wisconsin, but a manageable home schedule.

Nebraska opens its 2018 campaign at home against Akron on Sept. 1.
