It took three season’s in the Mike Riley era culminating in a 4-8 record in his finale to convince Big Red Nation they made a mistake. University trustee already knew who they wanted to run one of the most prestigious programs in College Football and knew he would accept. Forty-three-year-old Lincoln, Nebraska native Scott Frost played quarterback at the school he now coaches. What a ride it’s been, after a remarkable 2017 campaign coaching the University of Central Florida, leading the Knights to an undefeated season ending in a Peach Bowl victory over Auburn, Frost has one thing in mind; bring the Nebraska football program back to the elite status. However, he knows there’s work to be done on offense and defense, but he’s up for the challenge. Nebraska opens the 2018 season with three consecutive non-conference home games against the likes of Akron, one time Big Eight rival Colorado and, Troy. Big Ten officials didn’t do Frost any favors scheduling in the Big Ten as they must travel to Ohio State, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Iowa in the finale.
Offensive coordinator Troy Walters did a masterful job on Frost’s staff at Central Florida in two seasons, none better than 2017 when the Knights were practically unstoppable. The new regime must improve a unit that averaged (385) yards of offense per contest, eighty-seventh in the nation. Frost is already putting his stamp on the program with an uptempo style of offense with new strength, conditioning, and nutrition programs. Players were tired in spring practice but are getting used to the new way of doing things in Lincoln. Under center will be either (Adrian Martinez) who was in high school last year or redshirt freshman (Tristan Gebbia), both are grasping the new system. Whoever get’s the job they’ll have three excellent offensive linemen for protection. Jerald Foster, Tanner Farmer, and tackle Brenden Jaimes are all physical; Frost didn’t have at Central Florida, which should pay immediate dividends. All American wide receiver Stanley Morgan Jr. set a Nebraska record with 986 yards last years, he’ll see double overage, but JD Spielman is just as reliable. The Nebraska offense will score points, and they’ll get better as the season progresses.
The Nebraska defense allowed opponents (36.4) ppg in 2017 ranking one hundred and eighteenth in College Football which is unacceptable at the storied program. Erik Chinander will be coaching a few players who have played under three defensive coordinators since being on the team, but he’s a no risk no reward type of coach. Nose tackle Mick Stoltenberg will be a beneficiary in the new system by being able to avoid constant double team situations. Three talented linebackers led by Dedrick Young who’ll call signals from his inside position. The secondary will play more bump and run; they were too soft last season. Nebraska is almost a forgotten football program, they haven’t won a conference title since 1999, and it didn’t take Frost long to take UCF from zero victories to an undefeated season. Bovada.Lv, list the Nebraska Cornhuskers at 33/1 to win the 2018 Big-Ten Conference Football Crown.
