Nebraska head coach Scott Frost had a pretty rough weekend overall. On top of watching his team lose to Indiana for the first time since 1959, he took some heat for calling out his own players after the loss.

But in the wake of that criticism, Frost decided that he took it too far and tried to make it up to his players.

In an interview with Christopher Heady of the Omaha World-Herald, running back Dedrick Mills revealed that Frost apologized to the players on Monday. He reportedly admitted to "losing his cool on the sideline" during the loss.

But Frost apparently wasn't the only one apologizing today. Mills revealed that some of the players apologized to Frost in turn.

After Saturday's 38-31 home loss to the Hoosiers, Frost tore into his team for not having enough guys on the team that are "tough and dedicated enough."

“We’ve got some guys on this team that are tough and dedicated enough. We don’t have enough of them,” he said.

Frost was quickly derided for that as well as other comments where he was critical of the Huskers.

At 4-4, the Huskers are still decently positioned to make a bowl game. But their final stretch of games includes road trips to Purdue and Maryland, along with home games against Wisconsin and Iowa.
