Are they going to extend eligibility for the players. If they can get the games, go for it.

Life without football would be terrible. For the players, fans and coaches. Of course they would follow safety guidelines. The NHL has not had any problems with corona so far - lets use their model!

If they can do it safely, then yes have the games. It would be nice to see a variety of schools - maybe some old Big 8 rivals.

This would be great. As long as each participant has the same philosophy on testing, then what difference does it make. Maybe stay out of Texas? But what about eligibility if playing more than 4 games

I think the players need to do what they do. No one is getting younger. For many this season is a chance at something big. The benefits outweigh the risks IMO.

Do you think the Big 10 should make any conference alignment changes in response to the SEC moves?

Make Barry Alvarez the Big 10 commissioner and surround him with good advisors and go from there. We can't lose with that. Don't strike out and add things without a top team in place to make the decisions.

The Big 10 conference officials would be fools to assume the SEC has not already at least contacted Ohio State, Penn State and Michigan regarding joining. The only way to remain a viable conference long-term is to form a super conference to match the SEC's intentions. Strike from a position of power

It will be a cold day in hell before OSU and Michigan or any of the other original 10 depart for the SEC. I don't know what the loyalties are of the newer members, but I'm going to guess that they are also happy where they are as long as the money continues to flow.

I say go to 20 teams by adding WA*, OR*, USC*, TCU, ASU, and either Okie St or CO*. Go two 10 team divisions playing round robin and two cross-over (11 total conference games) and 1 non-con. Just don't leave ourselves out of the south market! I don't acre about the AAU*.

Texas and Oklahoma maybe big name brands, but I don't think Texas is as big of a deal as they seem to think they are. Seriously, what has Texas ever done? They are an underachiever and they will continue to underachieve in the SEC. As for Oklahoma? I see them as being another LSU.

Yes, we have to go big - Go after the top 6 Pac 12 schools I can live wt Kansas if the Big 10 can convinced Norte Dame to join. If not, go after the Pac 12. Then let the orphan 8 & rest of Pac 12 form a conference

Merge the PAC, grab IA ST, Kan, Kan ST TX T from the Big 12, raid the ACC of Clemson and Notre Dame. You then have 32 teams. Use the NFL model You can beat the SEC and then have in one division a Penn St vs Clemson, a Notre Dame vs Ohio St, Oregon vs Michigan.

I like the idea of adding the 9 AAU schools: Arizona, UCLA, USC, Cal, Stanford, Oregon, Washington, Utah and Colorado. I'd then add 1 more team (ND??). 6 4 team pods. play your pod and two other pods for 11 games plus one non conference. should play all teams twice in 5 years.

They're due right? And since I'm 42, and used to us winning 9 games every year for most of my life why would I change my expectation now? 8-4, win the bowl game, 9-4. Should be the minimum expectation for every Nebraska fan. Always! Then with playoff expansion coming, let's get in the mix!! GBR

Of the 3 things needed to win; player acquisition, development and deployment, acquisition is the best predictor of future success. By far in fact. Our roster is built because of great recruiting, development and roster management. It's really kinda all on the coaches to deploy well. If they do, yes

1. Who runs and catches? 2. AM may get hurt. 3. No ability to win 50:50 games or even ones where favored. 4. Field position and turnovers. 5. Most worrisome is moronic position from HCSF regarding vaccination. How do we get through season without loss of key players or need to forfeit?

A 7 win season would mean the best Husker team since the T Magic era, or maybe further back than that. This schedule is loaded and the B1G isn’t a cakewalk either. Only sure win is Fordham. I’ll be happy as long as they get a bowl game this year

Even with the difficult schedule they have the talent to get 8 wins. Unfortunately, this will also take team execution, discipline and a swagger we have yet to see. I'm hoping for 6 wins and a bowl. Anything more is gravy.

Huskers have not shown ability to beat even avg teams and are much more likely to LOSE one of the games they should win. then upset a team that they are underdogs in. This looks like a bubble 6 win team, at best.
