    Illinois showed everyone the blueprint and now Wisconsin is too scared to play anyone else

    Refs fucked us. Probably would've won if not for the zebras

    I don’t think they hit the positivity rate yet, they made the decision to shut down.

    Good thinking by Warren, Alvarez and the boys to schedule 8 games in 8 weeks rather than 10 games in 15.

    Some real scorchers on the Huskers board!

    I didn’t realize that 6 of the 12 positives were staff. I’m really pissed now. They really didn’t want to play. Cowards

    They should have to forfeit. They would rather cancel then lose to us

    You're about an ignorant bastard. Go on with your over hyped and overrated self the last 15 years. Nebraska fans are never arrogant. Crazy at times. It was obvious that Nebraska and Ohio State were the only two teams that did want to play and did get this POS conference back up and running. Not one single team stood tall like us and Ohio State. This game could still be played.

    Forfeit? They didn’t control their situation.

    They don’t want to play us. It’s obvious, they know the conference executives will run cover for them, & we get boned. All in a days work for the BIG10.

    Absolutely on Wisconsin for handling their crap... if Illinois can have no positives... what the heck has Wisconsin been doing? This is 100% about Chryst not wanting to not be able to coach. If he didn't contract it there would still be a game.

    I got $100 WI plays next week! They and the B1G know we would beat them and they don’t want us winning the West

    You know dam well if Nebraksa QBs tested + it would be Game On! Alvarez determines Nebraska's schedule too. What a joke.

    Are you kidding? We were going to push their shite in.

    This would never happen in the SEC or B1g12 . just the wuzzie Karen league. We should have got out when Notre Dame joined the ACC.

    I think this is all about making sure the Big Ten protects it's baby in the west. Just like calling BS targeting penalties against Huskers in the OSU game. OSU & Wisconsin are Big Ten's darlings and OSU is Big Ten's only shot at winning a title this year. They can't them getting beat or having the conference look bad. Also, Warren wants Nebraska to be embarrassed and does not want them to play any ways. VaTech had 15 players out 2 weeks ago and still played. If they have COVID, leave them home and go play with what you have.

    Wisconsin being the B1G's darling is a new one for me. Now if you want to say Alvarez has an outsized influence because of his longevity, I can buy into that.

    Also, Wisconsin definitely didn't want to play with their 4th string QB and should be forfeiting this game. (Understanding the can of worms it opens when you start talking about teams forfeiting for positive tests and what that means for the reporting/non-reporting of tests in the future)

    Do Nebraska’s defensive players now have to sit out 6 quarters for targetting instead of 2?

    Or they should be thankful. Losing to a fourth-stringer would have sucked. Either way, this is COVID football. They won’t be the last.

    HS in Michigan have been doing this every wk. Someone has a player test positive and they cancel the game. Then the AD searches for another school that is in the same boat and they make it work even if it is two days before. Little harder on this level, but hope they can make something like that work
