LINCOLN, NE — “It’s not what he said, it’s how he said it.” That’s the consensus coming out of Scott Frost’s latest radio appearance. Many believe the tone of his statement is a signal that much deeper cultural issues still exist within the Nebraska football program, leading to poor performances on the field.
The question came about 20 minutes into his interview from a caller out of Scottsbluff, “What’s one thing you like about being back in Nebraska that you didn’t have in Florida?”
Frost quipped, “Well, I like the Runzas.” While seemingly innocent, it’s Frost’s emphasis on “the” that has people speculating. Lincoln native and Husker fan, Doo Shbag, “Why else would he emphasize the ‘the’ like that? Clearly, he’s sending a message. And, frankly, I’m tired of hearing it. Time to quit talking and DO something!”
Of course, conspiracy theorists have come out of the woodwork in response to the criticism. One Twitter user, @canweallcalmthef!@#down, “You’re kidding, right? He emphasized ‘the’ too much? You guys are out of your mind.” But, most agree, people like that are probably not “real” Husker fans. You can only be a “real” Husker fan if you fly off the handle and act like an emotional three-year-old at every word Frost says.
In any case, it’s clear, something is amiss in Lincoln.
