LINCOLN — Scott Frost hasn’t been shy with his thoughts about playing a a fall football season this year.

And athletic director Bill Moos had nothing but praise for Nebraska’s third-year football coach when the Big Ten officially brought the season back last week.

Moos says, the players take notice as well, and that’s the most important thing.

“Scott Frost is a player’s coach,” Moos said last Wednesday. “He’s got a fabulous staff. They’ve just been wanting to compete. We may many more (players) in town over the summer than any of our competition. We were all in the voluntary workouts beginning June 1 and it’s been frustrating for them for everybody, but think of the players, they’ve been doing walk-through and all these kind of things.

“Here we are well into September and they’re ready to go out and play football and now they have a schedule to look at and soon they will have an opponent to prepare for and that is very, very important. I point out that they grew up, they dreamt, they worked to come to a place like the University of Nebraska to play in truly the big time, one of the premier programs in football history, and now they’re going to get to do that. Not as they had hoped with 90,000 and Memorial Stadium, that will come back in time, but they’re going to be able to play. And that’s going to be so valuable to everyone.

“The coaches, they’re competitors too, they want to be playing. They care about their players and now there’s a sigh of relief. They still have to wait a while but at least we can start to prepare and look forward to a competitive season. And hey, there’s a championships out there. There’s bowl games out there. Now there’s Top-25 ratings. There’s all these things. And now we can be involved with and be included, you know, depending on how we perform.”

Nebraska opens the season at Ohio State on Oct. 24.
