Frost’s potent Oregon offense could be better when used by the Nebraska football team.

Count Nebraska football wide receiver Tyjon Lindsey as a real fan of Scott Frost’s offense. Lindsey has been a fan of Frost in general since the Cornhuskers’ head coach was an assistant at Oregon.

There was a time when Lindsey thought he was going to be playing for Frost at Oregon. Because of that connection, the wide receiver has studied Nebraska’s new offense from afar more than most.

Having studied that offense as long as he has, Lindsey thinks he knows just how good it’s going to be at Nebraska. He’s pretty excited about it.

Lindsey talked to Land of 10 after the Huskers’ spring game and said that the offense that was on display on Saturday was just a fraction of what it can be.

“It’s only 50 percent of what y’all see right now. We have so many other plays, trick plays, coming in.” Lindsey said.

When he was asked what else the Husker fans can expect, he just smiled and said “stay tuned.” Lindsey pointed out that one of the things that makes this offense so potent is that it’s hard to tell where the attack is coming from.

Lindsey showed that first hand, catching the ball four times but also running it once, for 28 yards. He showed the kind of speed that is going to play very well in the uptempo offense.

The Nebraska football wide receiver also acknowledged there were some hiccups here and there, but he doesn’t appear to be too worried. “When that comes to real games, in-season, we’ll see what it does,” Lindsey said. “I’m pretty sure it’ll translate, just like Oregon when Coach Frost was there. Maybe even better.” If Lindsey is right about it being even better, then the rest of the Big Ten better watch out.
