Nebraska Cornhuskers athletic director Bill Moos thinks Memorial Stadium might be packed during the coronavirus pandemic.

According to Steven Sipple, Moos was talking about capacity at Memorial Stadium during the coronavirus pandemic, and kept full capacity as an option on the table. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

“I know it’s probably not going to be the case around college football. But our location plays in our favor just because of the numbers and how healthy the environment is here,” Moos said.

I appreciate Moos optimism, but there’s no chance in hell that Nebraska has full stadium capacity during the coronavirus pandemic.

There’s a better chance that I’m married to a supermodel by tomorrow than Nebraska sells out football games at full capacity in 2020.

There’s no chance at all that’s going to happen. Nebraska shouldn’t even attempt to do it. At this point, fans have already accepted that major changes are coming.

We’ll complain about it, but we’re willing to live with limited capacity if it means games are guaranteed to happen.

Nebraska won’t have full stadium capacity and no other program will either during the coronavirus pandemic. I’d bet any amount of money on it.

Moos just needs to accept that and move forward with the football season.
