Scott Frost reveals the 1 Big Ten coach he does not want to fight
The Big Ten has become a real meat grinder in football, and it’s full of some coaches who mean business. Scott Frost knows there is one coach he might not want to mess with.
Frost was a guest on the “Bussin’ with the Boys” podcast and was asked which Big Ten coach he would beat in a fight. The Nebraska coach didn’t share whom he would beat in a fight, but he did share the one coach he would want to avoid: Jim Harbaugh.
“I’m just telling ya, Jim was a professional athlete. And he’s a little bit crazy. I love him. He’s a little bit crazy. He just strikes you as the type of guy that wouldn’t give up, no matter what, in a fight. He’d probably enjoy that and I would too in a friendly competition,” Frost said.
Frost also said that Harbaugh is physically his size.
“He’s a tough dude, now. I’ve got a lot of respect for him.”
Asked which coach he would be able to beat up easily, Frost mentioned former Nebraska coach Bob Devaney, who died in 1997.
Frost was a former Nebraska quarterback and played in the NFL from 1998-2003. He was listed as 6-foot-3 and 218 pounds. Harbaugh was a former NFL quarterback and was listed at 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds, so they are pretty similarly-sized.
The hosts also downplayed how Mel Tucker would do in a fight, but they must not have seen how intense he gets during games.
