The players are sounding like they're forming a union. At least they want some say in how things are handled this season and build from there.

They aren't allowed to form a true union since they are not "employees". But they can form a trade association.

I have a sense that college athletics as we know them are going to radically change in the next few years. O'Bannon and financials are going to cause massive shifts in how colleges can do athletics.

I think it can be safely said that schools have had their way with the student-athletes for a long long time, so I'm very glad to see the students get some say in how they are handled and marketed by the schools. Now in regards to Covid and playing though...I really think they are going to have a much tougher hill to climb to succeed in that challenge.

Curious to see if the Big 12 or ACC follow the PAC 12 and Big 10 lead. Clearly don't expect the SEC will do so until a southern conference of a different name goes first.

It could be a simple pleasure but it's been way too easy to troll my Husker friends. Nebraska is my other alma mater and I'm a fan but I fully know how much of a train wreck they are right now.

Anyways, someone posted a schedule of Nebraska and Iowa playing head to head 11 times. They weren't too happy when I commented that I didn't see them getting Bowl Eligible

I suspect any draft eligible players last spring whose primary focus was money/pro career probably entered the draft. And those that didn't will still be eligible for the 2021 draft.

Yeah. Nope.

Good luck breaking those contracts. As much money as O$U is worth in football, it still needs the B1G more than they need it. Remember, while football brings in $$$$$, academics brings in $$$$$$$$$$, and O$U's academics can't stand alone.

Not my favorite opponent...but I would watch it. I agree with SkiUMahLaw that the legal hurdles for these two teams or any DI team to play outside of their conference after it has been postponed would be huge. I don't see any school spending that much money to try to circumvent the system to play this fall. There is already some concern about how feasible it will be to play in the spring, from what some pundits are saying.

Nebraska was told yesterday in no uncertain terms by the commissioner that if they play football this fall, they won't be members of the Big Ten. As great as it would be to rid the Big Ten of that mistake, Nebraska still needs the Big Ten a lot more than the Big Ten needs them. There's no way they do that.

Honestly let them go. It might be a vocal minority but having to listen to delusional Husker fans is exhausting. They can leave and take Maryland and Rutgers with them

Maybe PSU wants to play, too? Do it! Leave the Big Ten, leaving only 5 Big Ten hockey teams and no need for a conference.

Rutgers and Maryland bring in huge money for the Big 10 Network.

I have no idea why Nebraska is in the Big 10 except that they needed a home when the Big 8 broke up and they were still thought to be a prestige program at the time.

No, you're right. Financially having Rutgers and Maryland is good for the Big 10. It's just still a little weird geographically having them in the conference. But I suppose that argument could possibly be made toward other schools as well

I saw a comment that Nebraska fans hate the Big Ten because they moved conferences and started to suck. They weren’t correlated, but that’s how it has felt. Very similar to a situation in hockey for a certain team.

NDSU beat K State when the Wildcats were a respectable team. The Bison fan base is obnoxious. The FB program is solid. I would not have been surprised to see them beat the Oregon Ducks in game 1 this year. A friend of mine has his nephew as a RS Jr 2 year starter on the Bison OL and was going to go to the game until it wrnt pffft.
BTW the Duckd 2nd game was tOSU Buckeyes. Tough NC schedule, to say the least.

Wasn't that one of the worst Gophers teams in recent memory?
I would say so. I remember being at that game and just loosing interest. NDSU was good but not as good as their more recent teams.
That team has a coach who made Jim Wacker (may he RIP) look like Nick Saban

The NSIC cancelled fall sports last week and after a short conversation with MSU's Assistant AD about ushering he told me he wasn't sure if the NSIC will seek to hold a spring season. After that he told me that he is pretty sure that hockey won't start until after Jan. 1....which I think we all have assumed to this point.

Biggest thing to me seems to be if they can prove that no vote took place to postpone the season, which would be contradictory to the conference bylaws. On the flip side, if there wasn't a vote of some sort... how could the decision have been made?

They are, however, apparently asking for an injunction declaring the decision invalid. Given the interstate nature of this, that would almost certainly involve a removal to the Federal District Court... good luck getting that through the system fast enough to matter.

Edit: Then it hits me why they're focusing on the "less than $75,000" figure... To head off removal to Federal court

First off, the lawyer for this group of students is running in an election currently. This is a campaign stunt.

Second, the players don't have standing to even walk into the Courtroom. They don't have a contract with the conference, which is a voluntary organization, and furthermore, their claim, even if legit, would have to be made by the University itself, not by a student-athlete.

Third, the players aren't losing their scholarships, so what is their damage? They aren't prevented from continuing to publicize themselves for a pro roster-- only that they cannot do it by playing football at the U of Nebraska this year. Their professional football careers are speculative at best. It could just as easily be said that not having the season makes them MORE marketable-- less wear and tear on their bodies, and finishing last in the B1G West wont help anyone.

Fourth, their claims include "breach of contract", which makes you ask which contract did the players sign with the B1G? The players cannot enforce a contract on behalf of NU, remember.

Simply put, I believe the lawsuit a joke from top to bottom, and the players are getting used as a campaign stunt.

Missed out on the election aspect. After posting I thought about it some more and was also thinking that, if the school honors their scholarship, they'd have a really hard time showing any actual damages.

Certainly not going to pretend to be a lawyer, but I agree that this is going a whole lot of nowhere.

It's amazing that even though ESPN mentions a couple of the scandals in the coach's past, you could argue that they whitewashed his history. The guy is scum.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rush_Propst#Controversy

ESPN makes no mention of the fact that he was accused of inappropriately recruiting players in the past (or the head butting, or the MULTIPLE affairs...)

Has Iowa had the same QB for the last 15 years? I could see this guy throw without a uniform and know he plays for Iowa. They all look the same.
