Nebraska's seniors have won only 22 games over the past four years. Its not a mark to brag about, though their impact has been strongly felt off-the-field, Scott Frost says. Nebraska's head coach says the 19 seniors have led the way in changing the culture inside the Huskers' locker room.
"Its a great group," Frost said. "I feel bad this season hasn't gone better for them. At the same time, these are going to be some of the guys that the foundation is built on. I'm going to be sad seeing some of them go."
The senior class includes captains Jerald Foster, Luke Gifford, Stanley Morgan and Mick Stoltenberg. There are 19 seniors on the NU roster, many of which are 5th-year players.
Some of the seniors endured three coaching changes since arriving on campus.
"We had Bo Pelini, Mike Riley, now Scott Frost," Foster said. "We understand there can be some hardships. We took it upon ourselves to not be the problem, but the solution."
Nebraska will recognize its senior class on Saturday when the Huskers host Michigan State at 11:00 a.m.
