I read this on Facebook today. Wondered what folks here think? Part of me agrees with the poster but another part of me thinks the over 21 adults (coaches) need to step up their game as well. Here’s what I read:
We Husker fans need to do better.
We are all the talk right now in college football, and it's not positive attention.
But I'm not here to complain about Frost, the players, the staff, the program, the way it once was...
I'm here as a genuine concerned fan.
A bit of a momma bear if you will.
As a college instructor, I am with 18 to 22 year olds daily.
These. Are. Kids.
Trust me, they think they're adults. Remember when you did too at their age? How'd that go for ya?
You are tearing these kids up game after game, expectation after expectation, pressure after pressure.
And now, we've managed to put a man's job, one he loves, respects, and works his butt off for, on the literal shoulder pads of 18 to 22 year olds.
Step up, Husker fans.
There has been a fall from grace, but it's not only on the shoulders of this coach, these kids, or this program.
It's on us, too.
So we either learn how to cheer louder, in both wins and losses, or continue watching the weight of the world crush a program we all love so much.
Let's take on some blame and become the world's greatest fans once again.
Go Big Red.
