Linebacker hurries back to his position looks at the sideline to get the next call. Reads said call and immediately drops to the ground. Sorry but every "injury" after that lost all credibility.

It was. More than obvious. Soccer level obvious. Saw one in the auburn LSU game as well. But even more flagrant. Something has to be done in the off-season rules meetings. Sad day for football.

I think everyone of the 6 times they were injured it was on a second down. That is way to coincidental to not have been coached.

Just look at the timing, it was very obvious. They were prepared to do this. It was not the first team to do that over the past couple of years, but this was the most obvious. Pathetic!

Obviously faked, at least most of them were. When a player gets up fine then suddenly falls, it's pretty suspect. Would love to see a shot of the sideline to see if there was any signal

In the second quarter one of their linebackers went down favoring his right shoulder. When he left the field, he switched it to favoring his left. Not sure he was faking, or just confused.

Some injuries were probably real, but it's unlikely that all were. Indiana's AD obviously showed bad sportsmanship for his comments. He really has no idea what Frost and the coaches feel about them.

I was there and as a fan nobody should boo a player being hurt. But if you watch the video one has to wonder if that was a tactic of Indiana. In my opinion the MVP should go to #44. Injured 3 times.

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.

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

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.
