I am in the minority After the news that the Big Ten will be moving toward a conference-only schedule I posted the following poll on the Corn Nation twitter account: With the announcement that the B1G will play a conference-only football schedule this fall do you feel better or worse about the chances of college football happening this fall for Nebraska?— CornNation (@CornNation) July 9, 2020 I was extremely surprised. Obviously the majority of fans see the news of a conference-only schedule as an ominous...

Rivalry Week & SBNation Reacts: Iowa and Nebraska Are Rivals

Photo by Matthew Holst/Getty Images Just shut up and admit it folks. They’re the only “rival” we have so far in the B1G, and no it wasn’t “forced.” This long ad-nauseam debate over “are they/aren’t they” has played out far too long. Just accept it, the Iowa Hawkeyes are our Nebraska Cornhuskers true rival in the Big Ten at this point. It is not a forced rivalry, nor does it matter what the all-time record is.

Dennis Dodd Absurdly Puts Scott Frost on His Coaching Hot Seat List

Photo by G Fiume/Maryland Terrapins/Getty Images That has to be the only explanation. Dennis Dodd of CBS Sports published his annual Hot Seat Rankings. Out of 130 FBS football programs Dodd picked 11 coaches who had to show immediate improvement in 2020 (if there is a season) or they have to win in 2020. If they don’t then they will be fired. Nebraska football fans likely would have seen the title of his article, “2020 Hot Seat Rankings: 11 college football coaches with their jobs...
