Nebraska is in Year 2 of the Scott Frost era and, while fans are still optimistic about the future, the first season and a half haven't gone very well. The Huskers lost to Indiana at home on Saturday, dropping to 4-4 on the season and putting their bowl game eligibility at risk.

Frost didn't hold much back when talking about his team following the loss.

The Huskers' head coach called out the mentality of some of his players, pointing at the fact that some guys wore hoodies during warmups at Minnesota the week prior.

"I don't want guys that go out at Minnesota with hoodies on for warmups," Frost said, "that just says to me, 'just OK is enough, I'm a little cold so I'm going to come out here like that.' You got ridiculed or beat up when I was playing if you did that."

Frost is obviously speaking toward the toughness of his team and the Huskers - their defense in particular - haven't been very tough this season.

Still, it's a comment that rings hollow when it comes from the head coach of a 4-4 team. After all, it's Frost's job to have his players prepared for the game.

Oh, and he was wearing a hoodie when he said this.

It's still early on in the Frost era and the former Huskers' quarterback remains confident in the future of the program.

However, it's hard to not be disappointed with Nebraska's performance this season. The Huskers were a preseason top 25 team (an overrated preseason top 25 team, of course) and now they're at risk of missing a bowl game.
