Nebraska football coach Scott Frost had a classy response to a recent remark from P.J. Fleck.

Following Minnesota beating the Cornhuskers this past weekend, the head coach of the Gophers said the result “was truly culture versus skill.” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

In response, Frost told the media Wednesday, “Our culture has come 100 miles. I love where our culture is now. I think they have some skilled players, too, so I’m surprised to hear that.”

I feel like I’m going crazy because I’ve now defended Nebraska multiple times over the past few weeks, and I usually never do that.

I don’t know what the hell Fleck was talking about when he said “skill versus culture” because Minnesota is a talented team.

They’re 4-2, but he’s pretending that they’re terrible and that Nebraska is some unstoppable powerhouse of future NFL players. That’s definitely not true.

Furthermore, Frost is 100% correct that Nebraska’s culture has improved. Has it improved as fast as fans want? No, but you can’t deny there is obvious improvement.

Even at 3-5, the Cornhuskers have looked noticeably more competitive this season.

Fleck should just focus on his own team and not take unnecessary shots after beating Nebraska.
