I agree the sky isn't falling but as far as seeing a better team....... I don't know about that.After yesterday’s loss, Frost and Co. are a combined 5-9 @ Nebraska.
6 of Nebraska’s losses in that time have been by 5 points or less, and the avg. margin (including the Michigan butt kicking, is right around 11).
I saw a better team on the field yesterday than I saw last week. And I see a better product on the field this year than I saw last year.
The sky isn’t falling. Frost is still the guy. Adrian is still the QB. If we put a better product on the field next week than what we did this week, and continue to do so, we’ll be just fine.
The team I saw walk off the field vs Iowa, I feel beats the team that walked off the field vs Colorado this weekend 12x out of 10.....
I'm at a point where as I'm not going to keep bringing up "well we only loss by 5 points".........to make myself field good about a loss. We didn't bring Frost to Lincoln to keep from losing games by more than 5 points.
This weekend I saw a lot of what I have saw by the previous 2 staffs before Frost.......a team looking for an identity......
This team started off being aggressive. QB runs. Playaction..... Second half, totally lost their aggression. The look to be in survival mode and desperation started to show up in different parts of each series.
We are supposed to be faster. We are supposed to be stronger. We are supposed to be better conditioned...... We are supposed to be a more equipped unit under Frost from the Riley & Pelini teams......yet.........I'm seeing the same thing.
I HATE being cautious when wanting to talk about my expectations for how good of a team my Huskers will be, but truthfully.......I have no idea what team will take the field.......I want to at least get back to believing that my Huskers can compete with any team they face on that specific Saturday. I haven't felt that way since maybe the 2010 season.
