Nebraska lost another disappointing home game on Saturday night, as the Huskers were beaten by Indiana. The loss dropped Scott Frost's team to 4-4 on the season. The Lincoln program is now in serious danger of missing a bowl game.

Fans expected more in Year 2 of the Scott Frost era. So, too, did the head coach.

It appears that it's going to take some time for this to get going, though. It's clear that Frost is going to need to get several of his own recruiting classes into the program.

Frost was not happy with his team's players following this week's loss.

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

Frost added that he was "hard" on his players today. “I was hard on the guys today. I wanted a lot out of them," he told reporters following the loss.

Nebraska is going through some tough times injury-wise, as quarterback Adrian Martinez is still out, but the offense managed to play OK without him. It's the problems on defense that have to be frustrating Frost the most.

The Huskers will look to get back in the win column on Saturday at Purdue.
