Scott Frost arrived in Lincoln Sunday afternoon to cheers and from current and former players in his home state. Athletic Director Bill Moos introduced the ex-Husker player as the head coach for the Huskers. "We got the pick of the litter."
Frost repeated the importance of unity during his news conference "We can get this entire state behind this football program." He said we can put a program on the field that this state will be proud of.
Frost met with the team before the news conference and said, "I saw a lot of fire in their eyes." He said they looked excited. He told them to go home for the holidays and enjoy their time off but be sure to come back ready to work.
Frost told the group that he remembers the good times and has witnessed the down times. He said it's time to restore the passion and, "when that happens at Nebraska this is the best place in the country to be."
Looking at the road ahead, Frost said, "We need to get to work in the weight room and on the field. We're going to practice hard and fast but I told the players today everything we're going to do, it's going to be difficult but they're going to have more fun than they've ever had before."
.@coach_frost not wasting any time, as he and new LB coach @BarrettRuud visited Lincoln Southeast DT and Wisconsin commit Bryson Williams on Sunday evening. @HuskerOnline has more from the visit: https://t.co/7HJwIXnwRr #Huskers— Sean Callahan (@Sean_Callahan) December 4, 2017
