I am all for paying to watch. Not sure 200 stones is in the budget for this Nebraska-bred now in Indiana kid if most are free though. If they can get $20/game that seem acceptable.

We are Nebraska and Husker Football is part of our identity. Letting Husker football suffer, is letting COVID 19 win.

$200 is a small price to pay to keep the Huskers rolling along.

I'm in but how would that work ABC, ESPN, and BTN, aren't all games already televised? Wouldn't the networks have to give up games for PPV?

I'm in but not at this price. Each B10 team would have 4 games televised on Big 10 Network and these would all be PPV at $15 each. The remaining games on other networks would be free as usual.

I'm in but only as a last ditch effort. I believe they can seat more than 20k in the stands. Let the rich help them out instead of grabbing into the pockets of the middle class who need this outlet

I'm in with a big IF. As a remote Husker who "cut the cord" years ago it's, at times, difficult to see the games. So yes, but... they had better put a better product on the field.

I'm already paying the price of a season ticket plus donation fee. If I am unable to attend the game or games why would I pay an additional amount when I could watch it free on TV? This makes no sense

I won't watch the games. I am tired of the Huskers.

As much as I would love to see football this fall, I can't ethically wrap my head around this. The economy is collapsing, people are out of jobs and money is desperately needed in more important areas

I have difficulties getting the radio broadcast as I live in Charlotte. I still have to pay one way or another.

It's not that big of a deal to me whether or not football is played TBH. There are much more things that I can find to on Saturdays.

When the administrations bring their spending under control instead of using the meglamillions package they get, then maybe. Not wanting anarchy, but common sense to enter the picture.

I gave up our 4 season ticket a few years ago because of the deficiencies in the South Stadium and then they announced the renovations. Guess I made the right call afterall.

Once again, the south stadium gets short changed.

Far too expensive. Special seating for the rich is not fair to the majority of season ticket holders.

I don't think the half billion price tag to renovate a 100 year old stadium makes fiscal sense right now. There are also more economical ways to improve south stadium without completely tearing it down and displacing 22K fans for 2 years.

They were arbitrary plans. No legitimate schematic or even a mockup. Hard to back "we can't describe it, just trust us."

I think it is good to slow down the project and wait until we starting wiinning as then demand will significantly increase. Also wait until the economy is doing better and interest costs decrease. To me it is being good financial stewards of the Atheltic Department finances. Phases are good.

because I thought that this may not be a good time to be spending that much, when we haven't even finished the last project. I think our AD will have to be able to read the money people, and the times. I thought that Trev A couldn't live with that.

Compensation has always been tied to market value. These athletes are worth far more than they're being compensated, and that's been the case for over a century. Hence, they've been ripped off. I support salary, salary cap, and education on how to invest it in 401k style accounts.

Much more controllable, and much more equitable.

It has to fair across the board, from Fordham to Alabama. one monthly stipend for everyone, not just scholarship players. There has to be a limit on how many players all schools should abide by. Determine the national budget and every school must contribute.

Compensation changes the entire dynamic of college athletics, and not in a positive way.

They should be students and NOT professional athletes. If they want to get paid they can go pro. Personally, I believe they should cancel all sports in public schools and colleges though I love our Huskers.

Put myself through school in the 70's. They are getting for exchange of their athletic prowess what I had to work and save for. The two summers after high school I drove alfalfa trucks 12 hours a day 7 days a week. EARN IT!

They already live better than most students. Free room and board, tutors, clothing, and actual education cost.

They are compensated with room and board plus an education. The perks they get as athletes now are unbelievable!!!
