Speaking with reporters on Thursday, Frost bragged that the Cornhuskers' offensive linemen have been vomiting regularly during workouts under new position coach Dominic Raiola, a former Nebraska star who went on to a 14-year NFL career, all with the Detroit Lions.

"He's coaching them hard," Frost said. "I laugh with the guys because there's about 15-20 vomits every day from the offensive linemen, and it's not because they're not in shape."

The seemingly cruel remark roiled social media, where users and fans expressed concern for the players' safety and questioned working conditions, which have long come under scrutiny in the college ranks.
