New Nebraska coach Scott Frost has yet to coach a game in Lincoln, though the Huskers offense, led by true freshman Adrian Martinez, looked refreshed during last Saturday's spring game.
Frost was the only candidate sought by new athletic director Bill Moos. And since Moos' job performance is tied to that of his hireling, it's unsurprising Moos is bullish on the Huskers prospects despite having yet to beat anybody other than themselves.
Somewhat surprisingly, he called out three-time national champion Urban Meyer and Super Bowl loser Jim Harbaugh during a speech Tuesday to the Omaha Press Club.
“You’ve got Urban Meyer and Jim Harbaugh thinking, ‘We better put a little more into that Nebraska game coming up.’ And that's the way we want it. They're running a little bit scared right now. And they won't admit it. We'll leave that at that.”
Moos added Nebraska has "everything lined up for a golden era again," which means Huskers fans will know exactly who to blame should their team fail to earn a victory in Columbus on Nov 3.
