WATCH: Nebraska DC Erik Chinander on Tough Love, Discipline and More

October 02, 2018

Nebraska defensive coordinator Erik Chinander met with the media Tuesday morning. He spoke about tough love, discipline, the Huskers' third down struggles and plenty more.

When it comes to tough love, Chinander said it doesn't always look the same for every player.

"Sometimes loving you harder is hugging you and telling you how nice you are," Chinander said. "And sometimes it's putting my foot in your rear end and telling you the truth."

Chinander also noted that while he doesn't want Nebraska to be Wisconsin, he does want the Huskers to be just as disciplined. A big piece of that is having the "championship attitude that they [Wisconsin] have."

Watch the full video of his question-and-answer session below.

Also, please excuse the dead air at the end of the video. Our team was interviewing players and coaches for great stories to come at Hail Varsity when Chinander concluded his time at the podium.
