Scott Frost’s post-game quotes give the impression of a broken man
Reporters were keen to ask about Frost’s decision to take an onside kick after Nebraska went 28-17 in the third quarter. It didn’t fool the Wildcats in the slightest, instead giving them a good field position from which to score the first of their last two touchdowns.
“Once it was over I wouldn’t call,” admitted Frost per Mitch Sherman of The Athletic.
People in the room might not have said it, but everyone had to think it: Duh.
It was a stupid decision that backfired immediately. Frost got too creative for his own good. Which is funny considering what he had to say about his offensive staff.
The head coach essentially threw new offensive coordinator Mark Whipple under the bus after just one game.
“I think our attacking team needs to learn that you have to be a little more creative in this league,” Frost said. per CBS Sports’ Dennis Dodd.
Sure, Nebraska’s offense could have done better, but the defense gave up 527 yards, including 214 rushing yards, so there seems to be far bigger problems on the team than offensive creativity.
An Irish reporter posed the ultimate question at the end of Frost’s presser: would he consider stepping down as head coach?
“No. I love Nebraska. I’ll fight with the boys while I can fight.” said Frost.
The truth is, he probably won’t have much longer to fight.
