An open letter to Scott Frost

Dear Coach Frost,
First of all, let me be just one of the thousands of Nebraska folks to whole-heartedly welcome you back home to ‘The Good Life.’
I’m so excited you made the tough decision to leave the comfort and program you were building in UCF to come restore the Huskers back to what we once were.
We’ve been watching you from afar as we do a lot of our native sons once they leave the Husker program and we couldn’t be happier you’ve decided to come back.
I’ve got to say, though, that our beloved Nebraska football program just isn’t in the same state of mind since you helped win us a championship in 1997. I thought it would be a novel idea to catch you up on what we’ve been up to the last 20 years and what you can expect on the job.
We’re a broken fanbase that has been a punching bag for opponents for much of the new century.
