Nebraska suffered another brutal loss on Saturday afternoon. Indiana beat the Huskers, 38-31, at Memorial Stadium.

Things aren't going as planned for Scott Frost and Nebraska. The Huskers are now 4-4. It's a real possibility Nebraska doesn't become bowl eligible this season.

Fans are still optimistic regarding the trajectory of the program led by Frost and his staff. But after the game, Nebraska's head coach made a troubling admission to the media.

It looks like some of the players weren't focused prior to today's game.

This isn't a good sign for a team vying for postseason eligibility. But this certainly begs the question —isn't this Frost's responsibility?

One of the challenges when a new coach takes over a program is implementing a new culture. Some players tend to be displeased with staff changes or any type of adversity. And when trouble hits, it's tough to rally the players to overcome it.

But Frost will have to figure things out if Nebraska wants to make a bowl game. The Huskers still have to play Purdue, Wisconsin, Maryland and Iowa. Nebraska must win two of four to go bowling.

Nebraska's head coach must figure out a way to unite his team. Bowl game eligibility is certainly in jeopardy.
