Scott Frost says time is right for Nebraska football ‘renaissance’


Scott Frost joined radio host Jim Rome on Thursday to discuss his new job at Nebraska.

Frost explained why he wanted to return home and what the hiring process was like. He also laid out the reasons for why he thinks this is the right time for a “renaissance” for the Cornhuskers program.

“I think the time is right to see a renaissance in Lincoln, Nebraska,” Frost said.

He added: “When I was at Nebraska, there wasn’t a classier organization in the country, there wasn’t a more successful organization in the country. I have no reason to believe we can’t get it running that way again.”

Frost, 42, was the quarterback of Nebraska’s undefeated National Championship team in 1997, and his new mission is to help return Nebraska to its former glory.

“There’s absolutely no reason we can’t get kids to Lincoln, Nebraska,” Frost said. “Kids leave places right now and go everywhere around the country. There’s no reason kids won’t go to Lincoln if they’re going to Columbus, Ann Arbor, and Eugene, Oregon. And I think we’re going to create an environment, a football environment in Lincoln that people are going to want to be a part of.”

Frost’s full interview with Rome can be found here.

All it took was one week back on the bag to remind Jim "Bones" Mackay what he always loved about being a caddie. It just wasn't enough for this to be the ultimate mic drop.  Mackay traded in his TV microphone at the Sony Open for the 40-pound bag belonging to Justin Thomas.  It was his first time caddying since he split with Phil...

The people have spoken. And by people I mean, of course, my Twitter followers, which when you think about it covers everyone of importance. Or so I’d like to think.  The question — now that they have spoken — is what to make of it. And do they simply have a death wish for NFL TV ratings?   I posted a Twitter poll this...

The hulking figure lay on its side in the long grass, partially mummified by a tarp and some bubble wrap. Brian Hanlon recognized it as soon as he saw the face. “There’s Shaq!” he cried. Indeed, there was Shaquille O’Neal, even larger than life, frozen in mid-dunk. Hanlon rapped on the copper-toned torso. It was hollow as a...
