The Scott Frost era in Lincoln, Neb. hasn't gotten off to the kind of start Huskers fans were hoping for, as Nebraska lost at home to Troy this afternoon, falling to 0-2 on the season.
It was a tough game for the Huskers, who were playing without starting quarterback Adrian Martinez. The true freshman warmed up for the contest, but ultimately didn't see the field as he's recovering from a knee injury.
Nebraska didn't hire Scott Frost to win right away (although the Huskers surely would like t0). This is a major rebuild and it's going to take time. There's no need for Huskers fans to be panicking.
Still, Nebraska should be playing better, and the Huskers know it.
Frost revealed this evening what he told his players after the game.
"I just got done telling the team that, when things get tough like this, you have two choices: You fight back and you work even harder or you give up," Frost said tonight. "I also told them if anybody doesn't want to stay on board with this ride with us, let me know now and get off. Because I know where this is going. We just haven't had the results early."
Frost added that everyone has to be looking forward.
"There's no reverting back to 2017," Frost said. "We just have to make sure that everybody does a better job and everybody practices habits that lead to championships. We have a lot to fix. Coaches have a lot to fix, players have a lot to fix."
It doesn't get any easier for Nebraska. The Huskers are set to take on Michigan next Saturday.
