Huskers' 4-8 season under Scott Frost offers hope for 2019

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) The growing pains Nebraska went through in its first year under Scott Frost were apparent. There was the program-worst 0-6 start, the seven games in which the defense allowed more than 450 yards and the eight in which it gave up at least 31 points, and there were special-teams breakdowns week after week.

Hope for the future was apparent, too. Freshmen Adrian Martinez at quarterback and Maurice Washington at running back are stars in the making, sophomore JD Spielman was one of the Big Ten's top receivers for a second straight year, and team-wide unity of purpose set in just as Frost promised.

Nebraska went 4-8 for the second season in a row. This 4-8, however, has an entirely different vibe.
