Nebraska coach Scott Frost estimates “15-20” vomits per practice for the O-Line this summer. Prayers up for the hog mollies

August 19, 2022

Does Nebraska football have you down? Does the long, slow demise of the Cornhusker program have you feeling sick to your stomach? Don’t worry, America. You’re not alone!

It really speaks to the current state of Cornhuskers football that Frost, who reportedly negotiated a paycut and buyout reduction last year just to avoid being canned mid-season, is trying to sell this as a good thing. Do Nebraska players need a kick in the ass after five straight sub-six win seasons? Probably! Is puking more going to save the program? Probably not! Just ask the Lincoln faithful, who have been throwing up in their mouths a little bit each and every Saturday since 2012.

That said, this could be the year for the Cornhuskers (and by “year” we mean a potential second-place finish second in the Big Ten West). They open “at” Northwestern in Dublin, Ireland in Week 0. That’s a weird one, but there are no excuses in this program now. Not after all that puking. Escape Dublin with a dub, and the Cornhuskers face FCS opponents the next two weeks before renewing their rivalry with ninth-ranked Oklahoma. That’s potentially a 3-1 start to the season. They don’t play Big Ten East heavy hitters like Ohio State, Michigan State, or Penn State in the regular season and get a shot at Wisconsin at home in November.

In other words there’s hope … as long as they can keep their heads out of the toilet.
