Part of the quote from Lamar Jackson:
But I just feel like we break under pressure or guys just flat-out can’t win an individual matchup."
No different than Corey Raymonds "Look at them and look at us" quote after getting beat bu Carolina in the bowl game.
IMHO, this is nothing new. The Huskers have been on the softer side of the mental and physical battle for years. beat the teams we should (struggling now), 50/50 against teams with a pulse (getting worse) and completely mud holed by good teams (really worse)........
The new coach, whomever it is, needs to spend spring ball just instilling a Don't friggin Quit (DFQ) attitude. My goal, would be to truly break them all down, and build them back up into one unit. That puts team above self as a priority. Learn to trust the staff and each other.....You don't like it? Quit now, not on the field and not on the team and sure as hell to during a game. Turn your schollie in at the door on your way out....Accountability to the team, university, staff, state and fans......It's really that simple.
Frost seems to have similar views that he learned form TO:
Then there’s Osborne, whose impact can be seen in every aspect of Frost’s program at UCF. His offense has woven in pieces of Osborne’s scheme at Nebraska. The way the Knights practice, lift weights, train, compete — all are borrowed from Osborne’s blueprint. The feeling is mutual: Osborne “thinks the world of” Frost, said White.
As player, Frost would hear from Osborne if he didn’t cut block on the Cornhuskers’ toss plays or went out of bounds instead of lowering his shoulder along the sideline. As a coach, he finds himself echoing Osborne’s message: The first thing UCF skill players learn, for example, isn’t route trees but blocking schemes.
“I think those things have given us an edge, and those are definitely things that we’ve gotten from Nebraska,” Frost said. “I think the toughness that he brought to our program — making our team go live in the week, making it competitive, emphasizing everybody, including the quarterback, being tough — those things rubbed off on me.”
