Nebraska football coach Scott Frost had a bizarre comment following his squad’s 44-8 win over Northern Illinois on Saturday.
“You don’t know there’s a hole in your boot until you put it in the water. But, once the other teams see there’s a hole, they’re going to keep trying to go through the same place,” Frost said in a clip shared by the Big Ten Network on Twitter.

“Educate, teach, educate, teach, educate, teach!”

What the hell is Scott Frost talking about. You don’t know there’s a hole in your boot until you stick it in water? I’m pretty sure that’s not a real saying at all.
I’m also sure that it makes next to no sense.
You can’t just look down and see whether or not there’s a hole in your boot? You can’t see all the dirt and stuff getting in it?
I feel like there’s ways to find out if you have a hole in your boot or shoe without having to stick it in some water.
I’m not a scientist, but it just seems obvious to me.
Is this how bad Nebraska has gotten? Their coach has resorted to bizarre comments to rationalize what’s happening on the field.
I guess losing to Colorado when you were expected to beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl will do that to you.
I almost feel bad for Nebraska fans. Almost. They honestly believed they were going to be unstoppable this season.
Now, they already have a loss, and the coach followed that up by talking about boots, holes and water. What a bizarre situation we’re all watching unfold in Lincoln, Nebraska.
You just hate to see it!
UPDATE: Some of you are claiming he said boat and not boot. The official transcript from the conference in the tweet with the video says boot.
