Nebraska Football: Ugly accusations surface after Scott Frost’s departure​

What is currently happening around the Nebraska football program is a tale that is, unfortunately, as old as time. Especially when the larger story is one of rot inside an organization or in this case, a college football team.

Now that Scott Frost is officially in the Nebraska football program’s rearview mirror, certain people around the program and even in Nebraska media are starting to spill little secrets here and there. These particular stories paint a quite different picture than the one the general public heard about the Golden Boy’s regime over the last 4+ years.

Certainly, the internet is always going to be full of rumors and innuendo. Some of those rumors were even going to be born in an ounce of truth. Some are full on, 100 percent accurate. And still others are entirely false, put out there by people who want to be seen as having some “inside scoop.”

Unless someone is extremely tied into the Nebraska football program, it can be hard to tell what’s true, what’s sour grapes and what is just people trying to look bigger and more important than they are.

Having said that, there’s a reason the saying “where there’s smoke, there’s fire” is such a popular one. It’s a truism of course. And when it comes to the things that have started seeping out about the Nebraska football program under Scott Frost, it seems as if the narrative pushed by far too many in the local media; that Scott Frost worked harder and longer and wanted success more than anyone else in the state, was not entirely true.

The whispers have been there before, they’ve been there since the beginning. But during a Sunday interview that just exploded on Tuesday afternoon, one local sports radio talk show host came close to blowing the lid off the house of cards that was Frost’s reputation.

Mike’l Severe appeared on the Hurrdat Sports video podcast on Sunday, not long after Nebraska announced it had parted ways with its head coach. During a long conversation mostly focused on who Severe thought should be the next head coach (spoiler: Matt Campbell), the radio host launched into a lengthy diatribe about why Frost was fired.


Severe then detailed things that he said the Cornhuskers Athletic Director couldn’t talk about but were very clearly major contributing factors to why the former Huskers coach was fired just three games into the season and just a few weeks before his buyout would have been greatly reduced.

“He can’t talk about his head coach showing up late to practice every day,” Severe continued. “He can’t talk about his head coach not making recruiting phone calls.” The radio host also made it clear that now that the regime change has officially happened, he’s freer to talk about these things.

“There’s a whole bunch of stuff …” he added. “It was a mess up there.” He then dropped one of the bigger bombshells of the entire appearance and one that really should have raised red flags. To the point where it’s a surprise things were indeed kept so quiet around the Nebraska football program.

Shouldn't this all have been reported in real time, as it happened, rather than wait until Frost is canned and THEN spill the beans?

I call BS.

Maybe. Maybe not. Could be people afraid to damage the reputation of Frost further as he still was their coach and damaging info would have hurt the program. Their loyalty to "the program" could have been keeping them from doing it.

I agree though that rumors posted on the internet should all be taken with a grain of salt. It's hard to know what is true or just made-up clickbait.

Good point. Though looking at the comments posted on the Husker Corner article mainly about Frost being late? Any Husker fan who posted a picture of Frost drunk and/or with another woman, would have been subjected to a whole lot of abuse.

I’m ready to up my assessment to 100% attention seeker and/or vindictive BS but does anyone have a link a list of Mike’l allegations and sources. Just curious.

Alt hypothesis, Trev and company upon hearing their $7.5M buyout flush went over like a lead balloon in some quarters, drum fingers on table wondering how to change narrative and focus of attention.

Maybe he's learned a thing or two from Joey Freshwater?

There is one interesting thing about Frost's 5-22 all-time record in one-score games that I haven't really seen mentioned before. If Nebraska was actually "so close" to winning all of those games, weren't they equally "so close" to losing all those games by more than one score?

Larry The Cable Guy is on the Fox pregame show. Shook Urban Meyer's hand and told him he had a blank check for him.

Football is meant to run on Lombardi time. On time means 15 minutes EARLY.

Heard Frosty was all cozy with the cart girls at the country club and coeds at a few taverns.

Nebraska coaching search: Urban Meyer contacted as Cornhuskers continue determining candidates​


Urban Meyer has been contacted by Nebraska as the team continues its process of determining candidates for its head coaching vacancy, sources told CBS Sports on Saturday. It was not made clear whether Meyer was asked about his interest in holding the job.

Nebraska athletic director Trev Alberts went out of his way this week to caution that names mentioned in connection with the opening may not necessarily be candidates for the position. As such, Meyer may have been contacted as an outside source to vet other potential candidates for the position.

"You're gonna hear about a lot of names. That's good," Alberts said. "That means we're going to talk to a lot of people because we're going to clearly define what our values are, and we're not going to hire coaches who don't believe in what we believe in."

Meyer, a three-time national championship winner, had his name mentioned prominently after last Sunday's firing on Scott Frost. Meyer is in attendance Saturday at the Oklahoma-Nebraska game serving as an analyst for Fox.

Honestly if Meyer does take Nebraska job I think it could be good such as 1) a very high profile coach in the west division 2) the hype around him and Nebraska would be astronomical so PJ beating Nebraska makes us look even better 3) makes the west more appealing as we’re getting stronger opponents in B1G play.


The bad side to this is 1) Meyer lost all accountability after the jaguars and no kids will go there and he can’t recruit anymore. Don’t get me wrong I live in Jacksonville and that was a horrible place for him to go as the team is horribly mismanaged by the owners. It was a very very high risk / high reward for his reputation but it crashed so bad 2) it’s another crash and burn due to reasons above and it’s glorious to watch Nebraska fans live in past

Will too much pressure from uncompromising fans with high expectations and meddling from big boosters scare away potential good coaching candidates?

It's the unknown. Urban knew he could pull in 5 stars at Ohio State. That doesn't guarantee winning, of course, but you need it to win titles and he knew he could get it done.

Not at all a certainty that Urban's name/lore alone would convince 5 stars to come to Lincoln Nebraska. I don't think so. That thing needs to be rebuilt from the ground up.

Sorry if posted somewhere else but the Huskers apparently just fired defensive coordinator.

from ESPN:

Nebraska fired defensive coordinator Erik Chinander on Sunday, a day after his unit allowed 49 points and 580 yards in a 49-14 loss to Oklahoma.

Chinander had overseen the Cornhuskers defense since 2018 after arriving with Scott Frost from UCF. Nebraska fired Frost on Sept. 11. Interim head coach Mickey Joseph made the change and appointed special-teams coordinator Bill Busch as the team's new defensive playcaller.

Nebraska ranks 114th nationally in points allowed and has held only one of its first four opponents to fewer than 30 points. The Huskers rank 124th nationally in rushing defense and 115th against the pass. The unit has backslid sharply from last season, after which it lost several key contributors.

Meanwhile, Geoff Collins is in a death spiral at GT...only a matter of time.

At least all available candidates will have some choices of where to go come December-January...and Atlanta>Lincoln 364 days out of the year (allowing for one great day at Nebbie per year).

Team looked much better under Mickey Joseph. Money well spent.

I didn’t realize it but Joseph has only been at Nebraska for a few months, was not the offensive coordinator or defensive coordinator and has never been a head coach. He’s been an assistant head coach, whatever that is.

But remember, Fleck is the bad guy.
However, there are multiple posts on the Nebby R site to the effect of - " yeah, Fleck is a DB, but he can develop OL and DL, and win games, so let's go after him". I doubt that it would happen and I trust PJ would decline interest anyway.

I’m not sure drinking and having affairs has anything to do with winning football games. In fact I bet there isn’t a correlation to winning either way.
