Steven M. Sipple: Looking for ‘incremental improvement’, Alberts sees NU in same sloppy form | Soccer

I’m not even going to mention Oklahoma quarterback Spencer Rattler, one of the best QBs in the country. Remember, this stuff is meant to be fun. It’s not particularly fun to think of the trip from Nebraska on September 18 to OU.

My advice to Nebraska fans is to stay in the moment.

Wait, that’s not particularly appealing either.

I’ve said it before: far too much about Nebraska football has gotten really unappealing, which will help explain all those empty seats at Memorial Stadium this coming Saturday. The pandemic will also reduce attendance. This will provide cover against the obvious: Frost’s program tests the patience of even the most loyal Husker fans. Neglect is sometimes surprising.

Again, you cannot strike this team off. Too early for that. Frost keeps saying how much he likes it. He keeps telling us that the talent has improved.

“There is no question that we have more talent in the building industry right now, by far than we have since I came to Nebraska,” he said in July.

He thinks his team is more confident than ever and more united. He thinks the management is better. Of course, Frost in saying all of this places a lot of the blame on the coaching staff, the head coach in particular. If talent and culture have improved, now you would expect significant improvement on the pitch.
