Scott Frost delivers all-time quote at his father's funeral bashing the Big Ten
Nebraska got a tremendously tough schedule on Saturday when the Big Ten released its revised schedule ahead of the re-start next month.
It was not missed by many Nebraska and Big Ten fans that the Cornhuskers parents, players and fans were among the most vocal toward the conference before it decided to re-start the season, including suing the league. The lawsuit claimed that the players are losing a chance for development, exposure for a possible pro career and wouldn’t be able to market themselves to eventually capitalize on name, image and likeness revenue opportunities.
Nebraska will open the season against Ohio State, Wisconsin, Northwestern and Penn State, a slate that includes the top three teams in the Big Ten. Many wondered that this was in response to Nebraska’s behavior since the Big Ten decided to call off its season last month. Nebraska athletic director Bill Moos even said, “I wasn’t toasting champagne. … I think a little more thought could have been put into pieces of this, and it wasn’t,” according to the Omaha World-Herald.
At his father’s memorial service, coach Scott Frost spoke on Monday at the gathering which included members of the Huskers and Lincoln community to honor Larry Frost.
“It’s probably a good thing dad was losing his mental capabilities because he probably would’ve been really pissed off at the Big Ten right now,” Scott Frost said.
