Hey, I made this account to come say "thank you" to the Husker community. More than anything else, you guys are the reason that the B1G is playing football again this fall.   I'm an usher at

Isn't the testing available now? Having zero bye weeks is unnecessarily risky. No reason to not start the 10th or at the latest on the 17th to give some flexibility.  This is dropping the ball yet aga

Geesh!  The whole reason we are playing is to NOT lose money while  doing it.   We could have played empty stadium fball since 9/1.  This plan likely fails.  The losses get worse, not better but we all go down with the Big Ten together!   

I don’t get why you keep harping about the money. The reason games are trying to be played is for the conference to try and get a majority of the TV money.  Without any football, the TV money is minimal.

 

What is your point with all of these posts about “losing money”? Can you also give a concise answer so people know what the heck you are talking about?

Funnily enough, I did catch him on ESPN as I was making dinner last night and at one point in the interview he said 'you know another team that played a big role in this is a 5-win Nebraska team. I think they must feel they have a sneaky good team this season to have pushed so hard so they're a team worth keeping an eye out for...' blah blah blah.

 

Felt like classic Desmond - backtracking while trying to get a little dig in, while also completely missing the point; it is almost as if not being a pre-season championship contender makes your interest in having a football season more surprising.

It's like telling your kids all of this in a matter of a month.

 

"Hey kids, Christmas is canceled!!"

 

"Hey kids, Christmas is back on!!!......but it's pushed back until February, and if things don't go 100% perfect, it will be canceled again (and that's what we are secretly want as parents).

Why would anyone get butt hurt over this (as many of you have)?  I mean, why spin it when it's a fact that THIS actually happened. 

 

I honestly do not really care, I just thought it was a jab and brought it up for discussion.  Freedom of speech and all, but she did kinda sound like an elitist whinny b!^@h.  :)

 It's wild how much Nebraska's prospects for this season has come up in all of this. Like if Nebraska had an awful roster, Frost - Carter - Green - Moos would just say, "Screw these kids, were not gonna play, we suck a$$ this year". 

 

Same goes for teams like Rutgers. I see people saying, oh Rutgers doesn't want to play, they'll go 0-9! I assure you Schiano and guys like Vedral are chomping at the bit to get back out there.

I think it largely goes to show the value of local news/reporting over what you get from national people. Are the national guys going to be intimately aware of the economic and social impacts of not having a Husker football season in Nebraska? Probably not. So they're going to latch onto low-hanging fruit stuff like 'this must all be about how good their team is' or about 'making a statement as a young head coach with a team struggling to get over .500.'

That they are concerned about our win/loss record as it pertains to "we want to play" is weird.

Last night I had ESPN on in the back ground while I was doing something.  I didn't catch who was on, but they started talking about Big Ten's decision to play.  They said something about OSU being able to play with a good team and "making Nebraska happy so they don't leave the conference".  When he mentioned Nebraska, it was almost in disgust.

 

It just pissed me off.

I trust Coach Frost, Bill Moos, and the rest of the Admin at the school.

First time I can remember in my lifetime that there is actually a sense of unity with everyone at the school.

Closest thing I can think of would've been late in '07, early '08 after BP got hired. Don't remember a lot of boo birds at that time. It is nice to see everyone from top down pulling the same direction, though.
