Nebraska’s New Football Coach Says No Recruits With Gun Pics On Their Social Media

The University of Nebraska’s new head football coach, Scott Frost, talks tough when it comes to evaluating potential prospects.  In order to recruit the right kind of players, he told the Omaha World-Herald that he will comb social media posts for character flaws. Among the factors that will disqualify a potential player from wearing Husker scarlet: “Anything about guns.”

That’s right. The Omaha World Herald had it in a story

If a football prospect wants to be recruited by Nebraska coach Scott Frost, he should know that the Husker staff will comb through his social media history checking for character.

An uncle attending one of Frost’s camps last week captured the comments as part of his YouTube camp vlog. Frost told prospects, in no uncertain terms, that certain mistakes on social media are disqualifiers for the Huskers.

“Aside from GPA, when we’re recruiting kids, the next thing we’re going to look at is what kind of kid the person is,” Frost said. “And part of that is looking through every ounce of social media we can possibly look at. So if some kid tweeted something four years ago that’s bad, we’re going to know about it.

“And I’ll tell you this right now — if there’s anything negative about women, if there’s anything racial or about sexuality, if there’s anything about guns or anything like that, we’re just not going to recruit you, period.”…

Really coach? In Lincoln, Nebraska, home of the Cornhuskers?

So if a young athlete attended a shooting camp and posted one or more photos of the fun and excitement, you’re going to exclude him from your team?

What about a 6’4″ 220-pound prospect who runs a 4.5 40-yard dash…but tweeted a photo like this from a hunting trip with friends?

Hey Coach, why would you want to reject a potential recruit over a photo like this with a gun?

Let’s hope the coach meant illegal gun activities. Like this one.

This young man, Aquoness Cathery, posted this photo on his Facebook page last year.

A few months later, he ran from police in Chicago’s Grand Crossing neighborhood. The same neighborhood where Guns Save Life recently turned in a bunch of broken down junk guns to Chicago Police in exchange for good old American cash.

Cathy doesn’t have to worry about playing football in Nebraska or anywhere else for that matter. He died after police shot him as he ran with a gun in his hand.

Maybe next time Coach Frost talks about combing through social media to evaluate the character of his potential recruits, he’ll be a little more precise about the kind of photos that he considers disqualifying.

        I wouldn’t want my kid wasting their time on spots to begin with. Unless its shits and giggles with friends, then it might not be a waste of time, but thats what LAN parties are for. Sports are usually a big cause of injuries too. I heard it all the time in the grunts… ‘how were you injured? ‘sports…’

        Can spit the names and stats of all these over paid football stars but can’t tell the difference between the M240B and M240G. Hence, the gunner banned all sports talk on his ranges.

          I will admit that as a collegiate coach myself perhaps I am a bit biased but I will tell you this, there are a lot of kids in this country who are receiving very fine educations thanks to their involvement in sports. Not to put too fine a point on it, but for the vast majority of those kids if it were not for sports, they would not have the opportunity to get an education.
          You are always going to have a few idiots in any group, but the vast, vast majority of those kids playing sports are hard-working, intelligent, good kids who will, because of the values taught to them by the dedication, discipline, and hard work required by sports, turnout to be good, productive members of the American society. As someone who spent close to 15 years, between active-duty and National Guard, in the military, I can also say the exact same thing about the military; you will always have a few idiots, but the vast majority, both in sports and in the military are great people.

    No, he meant guns in any context.

    This is the Leftists doing to guns what they did to cigarettes, demonizing them, making them socially unacceptable.

    This is what we are up against…

        Frost is talking about thugs posing with guns, not Nebraska corn farming kids shooting dove. Thugs are the target audience of major college football program’s recruiting. Stop making Frost out to be something he isn’t. Every college program in the country has to have the same talk with their thug players about the basics of a lawful life, including not touching firearms, not hitting women, staying away from other thugs, etc.

    Wow, perform a thorough cyberstalk including things said as a minor.

    Though to be fair, college football is a garbage situation to start; caught between garbage high schools, bourgeosie fans, virtue-signalling students and faculty, and pro-football. It’s not surprising this straw has been grabbed.

    Last I checked Nebraska is still major corn growers.
    corn attracts pests. Never met a farmer or rancher that didn’t have a rifle & some also carry handguns for other pests. For crying out loud, some of those farm boys are the best of football players!
    Here’s the deal, win games, you stay. Don’t win football games? You are gone!

    I’m laughing my ass off, just thinking this sissy is actually a football coach?

    2. avatar Huntmaster says:

      State College. A private college can legally discriminate against gun owners and others exercising their enumerated rights. A state college? Time for a lawsuit. If only to take advantage of discovery. PLEASE!

      1. avatar Jonathan - Houston says:

        Maybe not. Once a private college starts accepting federal funding, either directly in the form of research grants or indirectly in the form of student financial aid, then they’re bound by a whole bunch of laws and regulations. The federal trough is deep and brimming. That’s why you can (possibly literally) count on one hand the number of schools which reject federal funding.

  11. avatar MGD says:

    I miss real football coaches who chomped cigars, drank whiskey, and cursed like a sailor at us players. They turned us into men. Why in the hell did Nebraska hire some stupid wimp snowflake to coach these boys and turn them into women? Maybe we can beat the lady Huskers this year!

    You see, the University of Nebraska has a very accomplished and record breaking varsity rifle team. This year, the lady huskers made their sixth straight appearance in the national championships. They shot their very best, a season high score, but it wasn’t quite enough to give them them victory. Still, these ladies are representing themselves, their families, their school, and their state, doing what they love and doing very well at it.

    Coach, YOU are the one who is a disgrace. YOU are the one bringing dishonor to that fine institution with your sweeping generalizations and demonization of all things firearms. You aren’t fit to wash that football team’s jock straps, let alone to lead the team as Coach.

    Here in Wisconsin, it’s a different story. Our pro team, the GB Packers coaches take the guys out trap shooting to break up the monotony of training camp. When asked what players do during the “bye week” most respond that they’re going hunting. Can’t wait to get in the field, or the woods is often said by many.
    This Nebraska coach probably grew up with needlepoint and crocheting. It’s one thing to avoid a gangbanger MS-13 type but to paint with such a broad brush as to include anyone associated with guns is demented. I guess the pheasants of Nebraska are safe around this thumb sucking coach!

      *eye-roll* this might shock your tender sensibilities, but crying “racist” about every. single. thing. Tends to A) show you are nitwit and B) diminish the horror you are trying to convey.

  43. avatar Bob Mitchell says:

    This will help recruiting in NY and NJ when you can tell the lads they will not have to be around any evil doer that has touched a gun. How can one graduate from a university and have no idea about the people who live in the state? Coach Frost has publicly declared that only pussies will be recruited at UN. The profs are going to love him. Boosters are going to have a problem when he only recruits pussies that are afraid of firearms. This is a prime example of ego overtaking common sense. A competitive Nebraska has always been good for college football but I guess being a social justice warrior is more important.

    This whole thing strikes me as very odd. As a die hard Husker fan from North Carolina, I’m not really sure what is happening in Lincoln these days. Last week there’s an article about some moron cruising around campus with an AR calling the cops on himself, then conveniently a week later our new savior of a coach, who we ALL WANTED DESPERATELY mind you, drops this gem.

    Had to have been taken out of context, there’s just no other way it makes sense. Not sure how many of you guys are die-hard college fans but the folks calling him a wimp, pussy and lib-tard is pretty par for the course with this site, if you don’t know anything about him. Scott is the prototypical Alpha-male, super competitive homegrown talent we’ve been looking for since the early Bo Pelini era to bring Big Red back to prominence. He’s a born-n-raised Nebraskan, former natty champ QB from the 97 team. I don’t think spending a few years under Mark Helfrich and Chip Kelly while at Oregon turned him into a gun-hating liberal. I really don’t. Hopefully he’ll explain more thoroughly soon, otherwise I’ll be checking back in with you guys while eating my crow in a few days.

    Since this is my first ever comment, might as actually comment on firearms. 🙂

    As an undergraduate of Lincoln NB, and a masters recipient from Omaha, NB, I am embarrassed by this coaches position. Time to replace this coach with one who truly embraces Nebraska and national gun-rights values.

  51. “if there’s anything about guns or anything like that, we’re just not going to recruit you, period.”
    Glad to know that this coach won’t be recruiting DAVID HOGG or any of the other anti-gun protestors from the #NeverAgain movement that sprang up after Parkland as soon as billionaire Bloomberg started funding them! Glad to know this coach won’t be recruiting anyone who says on Facebook or Twitter, “We’ve got to do something about gun violence,” or complains about “guns killing people” or calls for an “assault weapons ban” or calls for bans on “fully semi-automatic rifles that shoot 30-clips per round and have a shoulder thing that goes up!” (quoting from Governor Andrew Cuomo and Senator what’s-her-name).

    Or do you think perhaps this coach will be a hypocrite and recruit students who post gun-related comments as long as those comments are anti-gun, but refuse to recruit students who go hunting or target shooting with their dad, or get a Boy Scout badge in riflery or shotgun?
