Thank you very much Clete and Jim Pillen for getting the jet to make it happen. Thank you @coach_frost for having us back. Very excited for this team. This group of men has the opportunity to be the team that rights the ship.— Grant Wistrom (@GrantWistrom) August 11, 2018
The two former NU defensive lineman were on Nebraska's last national championship team in 1997, along with current head coach Scott Frost & Associate A.D. for football Matt Davison.
And Davison definitely approved of Wistrom & Peter's remarks to the team.
Nebraska's new director of performance nutrition, Dave Ellis, also tweeted about the speech.
The Huskers host Akron to open the Scott Frost era on September 1st.
