Scott Frost is finally going to be able to turn all of his attention to his new job as Nebraska’s football coach this week. This comes after a month of going back and forth between Lincoln, Neb., and Orlando, Fla., and balancing Peach Bowl prep for UCF with recruiting for Nebraska.
Frost was perfecting some of his Nebraska recruiting pitch on Saturday night after receiving the Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year award. While speaking with reporters, Frost was asked how Nebraska can recruit with some of the other Big Ten powers like Michigan.
Frost pointed out something that’s been on many people’s minds this week: the weather.
“There’s no reason kids should want to go to Ann Arbor and not Lincoln. It’s colder there,” Frost told reporters, according to MLive.
On Sunday, there was a high of 24 degrees in Ann Arbor and a high of 40 degrees in Lincoln. Though the Michigan weather hasn’t slowed down Jim Harbaugh much on the recruiting trail.
Frost will also be able to sell recruits on his offense, which was the nation’s highest-scoring unit in 2017.
