To say that Nebraska has fallen below expectations this year might be an understatement. While the Huskers will likely surpass their win total from last year, they're barely in the running for the Big Ten with five games to go.

Naturally, second-year head coach Scott Frost has taken some heat for Nebraska's 4-3 start. He's only in his second season, though fans expected more of a Year 2 jump.

But the embattled Huskers coach is brushing off criticism from upset fans and pundits. In a recent interview, Frost asserted that he cares "more about this than they do."

Frost said that he knows that "nobody's ever going to be completely satisfied" and that he and his staff are doing "the best we can."

He further stated that he doesn't give "one second thought" to people criticizing what he's done so far.

It's a strong statement to be sure, but Frost can't be completely dismissive of criticism. Even coaches who have accomplished things can get fired for falling below expectations.

Sooner or later Frost will need to start winning games - big ones at that.

Each of the previous six Nebraska coaches had at least one 8-win season in their first two seasons. Those six all had a 9-win season within their first three.

Nebraska will look to get a win at home against Indiana on Saturday.
