BREAKING: Eight Nebraska football players are suing the Big Ten in the district court of Lancaster County, seeking to have the court invalidate league's decision to postpone the season.
 

Surprised it took this long... this is something to watch if it gains traction.

Nebraska's relationship with the Big Ten has been kind of contentious since the school lost its AAU accreditation, a requirement they had to meet before joining the conference. Nebraska is the only Big Ten without it, now. 

Frost has made it clear he is not happy. Maybe the Huskers look to bail and go back to the Big 12?

Highly unlikely. They make something like $20 million more per year in the Big Ten than they would in the Big 12. Add to that one of the main reasons they left was they hated how Texas effectively ran the league, which is still happening today. Nebraska will gripe and complain (and maybe file a lawsuit or two), but they’d be sacrificing a good chunk of their athletic program if they left the Big Ten.

Big Ten attorney Andrew Luger argues the "harm would be incredible" if board of directors documents were made available to the public just because eight student-athletes disagree with the decision. He said the court is asking for something with "no precedent."

Hmm....

Big Ten working on a plan that could feature football starting Thanksgiving weekend.
 

Imagine that...

I think we can all safely say the Big Ten gets a 0% grade in how they've handled this entire situation.

The B1G really doesn’t want to be subpoenaed.  If there’s text or emails out there about the specifics on the cancellation they don’t want them exposed.  After all, they’ve never given specific about the cancellation, regardless of many parents submitting formal request.

Exactly. I think the statement the Big 10 attorney released yesterday was really telling. If the decision was based solely on the health and safety of the student athletes and that’s what the discussions were about, there’s no way those discussions coming out would be harmful to anyone because everyone understands that. But the vague answers to questions, the steadfast refusal to release information, has all been extremely troublesome and has rubbed a lot of people the wrong way.

It basically said... “please don’t go looking.”  Now, 24-48 hours later we’re gonna move the season up.  Interesting.

Exactly. Definitely not a coincidence. There is something that they don’t want us to see. I have my opinion on what it is but it can’t be talked about here.
