Nebraska Cornhuskers football coach Scott Frost wants to win, that’s obvious. With just two games left on the season schedule, the Huskers need to win both games to make a postseason bowl.
Frost, team still confident
It was obvious when Huskers coach Scott Frost talked to the media on Thursday that the team is upbeat, but as Frost said, being positive is one thing, but getting a win is very important at this stage.
“The moods are positive, the energy is positive, the attitude is positive,” Frost said on Thursday. “They believe in where we are and what they are doing – [but] it’s just until you get a win, you can still see guys wondering when and if it’s gonna happen.”
Frost didn’t make any excuses about the losses the Huskers suffered in 2019. In fact, all he talked about is how important it is to win these final two games and end the season strong.
“We just need to get over the hump – winning breeds more confidence and confidence breeds more winning.”
One thing is for sure, the Huskers have played better than their record – but that doesn’t matter to Scott Frost. There are no “moral” victories in this game.
With the passion in his voice, you can tell if the Huskers can beat Maryland on Saturday, they will be sky high next week when they face the Iowa Hawkeyes in their final home game of the season.
In a season that had such high hopes, finishing with two wins and getting back in the national spotlight by making a bowl game would be a great ending to the 2019 season and something positive to build on for 2020.
Wan’Dale Robinson returning?
A good way to win your final two games is to get back an essential piece of your offense. For the Huskers, getting Wan’Dale Robinson back on the field would be huge.
Will he play this week? Huskers fans sure hope so, and so does Scott Frost.
“We’re hopeful that we’ll get Wan’Dale back on the field for us before the year ends,” Frost told reporters Thursday.
Robinson has had a great start to his NCAA career. He is just the fourth freshman in Nebraska history to gain more than 1,000 all-purpose yards. Just think of what he could have done if he was healthy the entire season.
This week, the Huskers are 5-point favorites against Maryland. Kickoff this Saturday is scheduled just for 3:30 ET.
