Nebraska head coach Scott Frost shared a funny – and kind of gross – story at Big Ten Media Days in Chicago this week.
Frost revealed that a die-hard Nebraska fan sent him a present ahead of the upcoming college football season.
The present was not wanted, though.
“I got a pair of used boxers,” Frost told SiriusXM Sports. “It was pretty obvious (they were used). The guy said, ‘These were the boxer shorts I was wearing when you guys beat Missouri in ’97, I thought you’d want to have them.’ He was wrong.”

Yeah, that’s not a gift anyone wants to be received.
The 1997 Nebraska-Missouri game was awesome, though.
Nebraska topped Missouri in overtime following a game-tying touchdown catch that was helped by the kick of a Huskers player.
The play has since been deemed “The Flea Kicker.”
Nebraska is heading into the 2019 season with a lot of hype. The Huskers had a tough 2018 season, though return a lot of talent, including star quarterback Adrian Martinez.
Frost and Co. begin the year on Aug. 31 against South Alabama.
