if a healthy athlete gets this it is like the flu. Short-term and no long-term damage. Let them play!

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.

We need college football and the players are probably safer on campus than at home.

Schedule with whoever still wants to play. You can get Covid going to the grocery store. The players have access to the best medical attention, facilities and testing. Why not play?

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.

People had time to think over what was bothering them about the former plans.

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.

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!!!
