Well, that was fun while it lasted I suppose! I’m not sure Nebraska ever came super close to leaving the B1G, but we know the Big 12 was willing to take them back.
That situation has officially been removed from the table, and now we know the Cornhuskers will be around for a long time.

As I’ve said many times before, I genuinely like the people of Nebraska. They’re passionate football fans and they love the Cornhuskers.
I feel terrible for them that they won’t get it in 2020.
Huge thank you to everybody who made my trip to Nebraska an unforgettable experience.
The Cornhuskers truly have the best fans in America. I felt at home, and lost count of all the free drinks we were given.

Now that the game is over and Wisconsin won, I want to say I am blown away by the hospitality of Nebraska fans.
They won’t let me pay for a drink. I was told they’re the nicest fans in the sport, and they didn’t disappoint.
The Nebraska Cornhuskers are an all-class fanbase.

Say a prayer for the good people of Lincoln and the state of Nebraska as a whole. Now that football in 2020 is officially done, they’re in for a very rough time that they don’t deserve and didn’t ask for.
