Scott Frost Focused on Arizona and Scooby Wright


Scott Frost is tired of a lot of things. He’s tired of people asking him about the Nebraska head coaching job, even though it’s been available for only two days, and he’s tired of people saying Arizona is the new Stanford. He’s never been a man of many words, and with the short week affecting Oregon’s practice schedule, he’s ready to move on and focus on beating Arizona.

I got a chance to talk to Frost at the Hatfield-Dowlin Complex today in an interview for, where Frost was very clear about all the things surrounding his job position. He stated, “I’ve got a job to do here. These kids and this staff put too much time and effort into this. We have a job to do.” I went on to ask him if the Nebraska job would interest him down the road, to which Frost responded, “I would let you know if I wasn’t completely focused on Arizona.”

Scooby Wright is wreaking havoc throughout college football.

Arizona is a team that Frost admires most, and in a conference where Utah and Stanford get a lot of credit for being the dominant defenses he felt that Arizona too often gets overlooked. He had high praise for the defensive line, and in reference to Scooby Wright he said, “They’ve got a linebacker that might be the best defensive player in the country.” Wright, only a sophomore, has 140 tackles and 15 sacks and is one of the top five players in the nation in both statistics, respectively. Frost attributes a lot of Wright’s success to Arizona’s 3-3-5 scheme. He said, “Any scheme is good when you run it well and those guys run their scheme well.”

Finally, Frost commented on how Oregon is preparing for such a huge game in fewer days than usual. He said, “It’s tough going into a championship game on this short week … players are cramming to get healthy.” He did emphasize how well the players are handling it, saying, “I’m so impressed with our guys. They’re focused and they’re resilient.”
