Lol man this is awesome seeing Nebraska fight with the big 10 and not ever get their way. Very similar to my toddler.

Where does Nebraska go next? Pac 12? American?

I don't see why people are freaking out about a 21 day protocol. . When you are dealing with student athletes I would want to be as careful as possible before bringing kids back.
Because we don't hold student athletes out for 21 days when they have the flu, which is more dangerous to people in the 18-22 year age group than covid19.

A 21 day protocol when you've not built in make up days crosses out the ability to have football possibly for everybody and is bad planning. They got on board to play because they saw the other conferences going for it but planned backwards.

They chose to join in mid-September and could have had games starting two weeks from then, with bye weeks installed.

And it looks like teams/players don't typically need 21 days to be thorough for clearance, as other conferences haven't.

Now if a kid is still showing some negative signs via cardio tests etc., sure you absolutely hold them out, and even let them sit out the season to come back next season if it works out.

For the record, this isn't an endorsement one way or another for having football; just saying if the conference chose to play, an efficient plan was needed.

This is the key point. It wasn’t like any individual was going to be forced back into playing after 10 or 14 days. The ironclad 21 day thing is just idiotic. I’m beginning to think the b1g presidents wanted to fail.

They never wanted to play. This is an academic vs athletic battle of ego's.

The heart thing was pretty much disproved about a month after it came out, ie in the summer. So that's not a surprise that they aren't finding anything.

Have we thought about the possibility that Nebraska fans sent some people up to Madison to infect Wisconsin's football team? Maybe they thought the way to beat them was a forfeit.

I’m just glad to see they barely get one week of games under their belt and they’re back to being the laughingstock of the CFB world.

I am so excited for the day a few weeks from now, when Ohio State has a game cancelled, and they are allowed to schedule a non-conference opponent.

Living here in the Omaha area...they are going bonkers. Of course, COVID is running rampant here too...honestly just a matter of time until the 'skers catch the 'rona. They were viewing this as a true W as Whisky didn't have a viable QB.

Give me Madison's best HS QB, place him on Sconnie, and I'd still take Sconnie.

Honest question though, doesn't the Big 12 have a rule where a team can't play if they have a position group just decimated by "rona? I mean would Wisc even be playing in the Big 12 this week? I thought there were minimum numbers required, and when looking at that QB room, I don't think they'd make it.

Or they could have just went wildcat all game.

Thought it was interesting that the local Madison TV broadcast made no mention of Cryst and five other coaches testing positive. Interviewed Barry and he didn't say anything about it either.

They should watch the game from 2017 (?) when Wisky ran it just about every down in the 4th quarter.

That was with Horningbrook who was also not a viable QB.
