    Yeah that wouldn’t be good for Nebraska, but are these totals even based on any real schedule info?

    No because they haven’t given out the 10 game opponent..

    I agree, they should schedule the the nfl if your number one then you get the toughest schedule and then second place gets likewise and so forth, that way it gives the middle of the pack and the bottom a chance to win some games

    while some are begging for Nebraska to get Maryland, Rutgers and Indiana - Maryland, Rutgers, Indiana and the rest of the east teams are probably strongly hoping to have Nebraska on their schedule

    That is based on a hypothetical 10 game schedule? Not a good look for Nebraska or Michigan. But my biggest question is, how do they see Ohio State losing twice? They are loaded and it takes them two season to do that with a full schedule. B1G games only would take several seasons.

    Sounds like a win, win. Although I think Nebraska is going to be a lot better than you do.

    Is this not based off the 9 games they were going to play already plus just one more?

    I have no idea how they come up with this without any schedule. They certainly don't think much of the West. Iowa and Minnesota at 4.5 aren't exactly great either.

    Rutgers is a suckers bet Laughing
    They play Maryland, Michigan State and Illinois so it’s possible I guess
    Of course if you listen to them, their winning the Conference in 5 years. RollingLaugh

    Seriously most expect a title under St Greggy
    I expect better results but enjoy 6-6 or 7-5 as your high point.

    Minny caught all the breaks last year...they played like 4 games vs teams that were starting a QB that never started before and they had the most amazing comeback win over Georgia Southern?

    I think it is genius marketing
    you come out first with lines knowing that there isn't a schedule out and few will bet
    there is a significant chance there won't be a season or a shortened season making the win totals void

    meanwhile you drive a lot of attention to your site - basically they are throwing out some numbers for bait

    Yeah but Martinez being hurt was actually a bad break for Minnesota.

    I know, because I read it here.

    Oh yeah...well...is there anything Husker fans love more than a small town walk on QB?


    I will save you the suspense...there is not.

    They’re keeping the original 9 games schedule.
    Here are my 2 options for a 10th conference game. Based on 5 H & 5 A games each

    Scenario 1:

    Osu at Purdue
    Penn State at Illinois
    Michigan at Northwestern
    Indiana at Minnesota
    Maryland at Iowa
    Michigan State at Nebraska
    Rutgers at Wisconsin


    Scenario 2:

    Osu at Wisconsin
    Michigan at Iowa
    Penn State at Purdue
    Michigan State at Illinois
    Rutgers at Minnesota
    Indiana at Northwestern
    Maryland at Nebraska

    now some forfeit could happen a long the way.

    Nebraska was brought into the league on the basis of being a past and future marquee program

    you can't market yourself as another OSU, Michigan or Penn State to get into the club and then expect to be treated like your an Indiana

    So you have Indiana at Minnesota and Indiana at NW.. Why not Indiana at Nebraska ?

    Nebraska has played MSU 6 of the last 9 years and we play them again in East Lansing next year..

    I think some of these numbers take the virus into account. What if Fields has the virus and misses 3-4 games. May be why a lot of teams as a whole have some ugly over/unders.

    I remember RutgersAL. Nice enough guy, but half the team were All-Americans according to him and at least three of them were Heisman candidates every year, Not even huskersalts was half as optimistic as that guy.

    I’m all for it. This year is a throwaway anyway...might as well play the best teams every week to get better in the future. Who knows, might even pull off a big upset or two.

    I was just trying to keep team’s schedule balanced out. Maryland and Michigan St both have completely new staffs that will have little practice time together. While Indiana is returning a lot.
    Since neither of my scenarios mean anything to a thing to the B1G :(

    Your correct sir, N can have Indiana since they don’t play as much. The true schedule makers may take that into consideration

    RollingLaugh Believe it or not, I met Al once at a PS vs Rutgers game in New Brunswick. He’s a nice guy but yes a little to optimistic. Rutgers Al just loves his school but he’s harmless, he goes with his wife.
    Which is more than I can say for some others. Who are truly delusional, belligerent and disrespectful folks.
    A school doesn’t go from 2 years winless in conference. To a conference championship in 5 years, I don’t care if Urban himself rolled on to campus. Is Greg Schiano better than Chris Ash for them. Yes I think he is, his past history at Rutgers proves that. B1G isn’t the Big East and it’s 2020 not 2011.

    Kids want 2 things
    1 to make it to the nfl
    2 to win a championship before getting there.

    They don’t realize how hard & ultra competitive it is at the top. It’s about recruiting recruiting recruiting and while better under Greg. Low 3 and 2 star kids don’t win National or B1G championships.

    But they won’t. My prediction for the tenth game? Michigan in Ann Arbor.
    This whole thing is terrible news for Nebraska. We lose two very probable wins in the non con schedule. Frost just can’t catch a break. I see us going 4-6. 5-5 if we get some breaks, and 6-4 if we are lucky

    It's time Frost makes his own breaks and earns his $5 million.

    At the time of the announcement yesterday the new commissioner hasn’t said how the 10 would be played..

    Could even be a possibility that the 10 game could be played against another opponent closer to traveling distance regardless if they have already played each other..
