Pernell: Frost continues fusion of ‘Oregon Speed and Husker Power’

7/18/19 | Jeremy Pernell
When Scott Frost was hired, one of the most impressive things about him was how prepared he was for the Nebraska job. Sure, his time at Oregon laid the groundwork of the offense he has taken and evolved into his own. One of the most innovative and dangerous systems in college football. And without question, his two-years at Central Florida…

Monday Morning Quarterback: Does the Scott Frost training video tweet disrespect Navy SEALs?

6/24/19 | SquareOffs
There is an internet kerfuffle brewing about a training video that Scott Frost tweeted last week. The video shows Nebraska football players going though military-type workouts on the beach and in the water, with voiceover about not cutting corners. Evidently, the video (link below) in part was the idea of Damian Jackson, Husker walk on and former Navy SEAL. pic.twitter.com/2BR8slArsW…

Stryker: Building a team-first mentality doesn’t happen easily

Scott Frost was baptized by fire in Year One. He is getting another baptism — by leisure — as he approaches Year Two.

HUSKER DAN: FRED FROST AND SCOTT HOIBERG: CLONES?

Stryker: Upcoming season will pivot on home games against West foes

5/23/19 | Tad Stryker
I recently watched BTN’s “Big Ten Elite” football retrospective honoring the 1997 Nebraska team. The director did a good job playing up the strongest story lines — Tom Osborne’s final season, the Blackshirt dominance of Grant Wistrom and Jason Peter, the rise of linebacker-mentality quarterback Scott Frost. It was at least as good as the network’s piece on the 1997…

Stryker: Put Martinez under center as an occasional changeup

5/5/19 | Tad Stryker
On the road to creating a high-force offense with Oregon speed and Husker power, Scott Frost needs to find a way through a boggy valley. It’s not a long valley. On the contrary, in 2018, the problems often came on third-and-short. In general, with freshman Adrian Martinez running the offense, the Cornhuskers showed signs they’re on the way to becoming…

Stryker: Better depth means upturn in chronically weak defensive line

3/29/19 | Tad Stryker
For most of a decade, the defensive line has been the Nebraska football program’s major on-field weakness.
