Every Nebraska Fan Needs To Hear This Quote From Scott Frost

There's no way to sugarcoat it: Nebraska football got absolutely destroyed at Michigan today.

The Huskers fall to 0-3 on the year, after having the Akron season opener canceled.

Nebraska has added a 12th game on Oct. 27 to make up for that one, against FCS squad Bethune-Cookman. The program hopes that it will help Nebraska's push for six wins and a bowl, but honestly, things aren't looking great in that regard.

There are maybe two or three very winnable Big Ten games on the schedule from here on out.

Next week, Nebraska gets Purdue, which is handling a top 25 Boston College team right now. That's followed by Wisconsin and Northwestern road trips, and then Minnesota at home, before a trip to Columbus.

Nebraska does face Illinois on Nov. 10, though the Fighting Illini almost beat USF, and hung with Penn State for a half before the Nittany Lions turned things on. They finished vs. Michigan State and at Iowa.

A two or three-win season is not out of the realm of possibility for the Huskers, and Scott Frost alluded to it a bit during the week.

Nebraska athletic director Bill Moos wasn't afraid to stoke the hype machine heading into today's game, saying that Jim Harbaugh and Urban Meyer's clubs were "running a little bit scared right now" about the improvements that the Huskers are making under Frost.

You wouldn't know it with the 56-10 Michigan win.

Frost took a much different tact previewing the game against the Wolverines. His words proved prophetic. Via Sports Illustrated:

“This could get worse before it gets better,” Frost said this week. “We’re going up to play a really good team.”

And after the game:

Nebraska is 0-3 for the first time since 1945. Clearly, we didn't know how badly this situation had been taken down to the studs. Try and get through the next few weeks, Husker fans, and even without a bowl, hopefully you start to see the seeds of a stronger program.
