Nebraska was expected to start the 2022 college football season with a win. Instead, the Cornhuskers were upset by Nort Anderson Trojans Jerseys hwestern 31-28 in the inaugural Aer Lingus College Football Classic in Dublin on Saturday.
Cornhuskers coach Scott Frost caught plenty of flak for Nebraska's sh Texas vs. Oklahoma Rivalry Jerseys ortcomings in the contest. Many criticized his decision to attempt an onside kick while leading by NCAA Crewneck SweatJerseys 11, while others were less than impressed with Nebraska's tackling.
However, the worst shot that Frost might have taken after the game was one from a Northwestern assistant.

Kurt Anderson, the Wildcats' offensive line coach, took to Twitter to poke fun at Frost and his training FSU vs. Miami Rivalry Jerseys methods in the wake of Northwestern's surprise victory.
Anderson's comments were a reference to something Frost said in praise of new Nebraska offensive line coach Donovan Raiola the week before the game. Frost said on a weekly radio appearance that his offensive linemen were vomiting 15 to 20 times per practice under Raiola's watch.
“It’s not because they’re not in shape — he’s just working them hard,” Frost said on the Huskers Radio Network. “I think they love it. He’s kind of freed them up to go be aggressive and I love the way they’re coming off the ball.”

Naturally, Frost faced plenty of blowback for his comments, with many pointing out that working to the point of vomiting isn't exactly healthy. The mother of a former Northwestern player who died during practice was among those who Colorado State Rams Notre Dame vs. USC Rivalry shirt Jerseys criticized Frost. She said he was "speaking from ignorance" with his claim.
“I’m all for hard work, but when you institute methods that make a player vomit or collapse, we’ve lost all sense." Linda Will told USA Today. Will's son Rashidi Wheeler died in August 2001.
As Anderson and the Wildcats proved Saturday, the amount of times that a player vomits doesn't correlate with college football success. Frost may want to find a different way to measure it as he looks to cool down his scorching-hot seat.
