Husker assistant Mario Verduzco spent about 20 minutes Tuesday on “The Bottom Line” discussing Nebraska quarterbacks, but as the interview was ending, he had to get one more point across.
Verduzco was a part of the Husker Nation Tour that took him to Kearney, Hastings, Geneva and York to speak to fans. He’d look at the crowd and notice a sense of skepticism. He understands why. New staffs have come in, preached how things would change, but it never got better.
Verduzco sees one major difference this time around — and his name is Scott Frost.
“I really believe that,” Verduzco said. “Who better to get this place back to how you guys want it, how you love it, how you remember? Who better to do that than Scott Frost?
“He knows what needs to get done culturally, bringing back Husker Power, bringing back the walk-on program, bringing back that grit and that toughness, and let’s go kick somebody’s ass on defense, and the Blackshirts, and the frickin’ tradition, the work ethic that makes the people of Nebraska great, that made this football program great.
“Who better to do that and knows how to get that done than Scott Frost? I understand the skepticism, but dammit I’ll tell you what, Scott Frost is one of a kind. That’s all I have to say.”
Check out the full video of Verduzco’s interview at the top of the page. He discusses how he evaluates quarterback recruits, what this summer means for picking a starter, his thoughts on private QB trainers and a whole lot more. His epic sermon on the future under Frost is at the end.
