Nebraska’s game against Illinois slated for Wednesday night has also been postponed.

The hits just keep coming in the world of college sports. It seems like with every passing day, we get more bad coronavirus news.

We deal with postponements all season long in college football, and we’re seeing them as well in basketball.

The Big 10 started the season without many issues, but the conference has been on a bit of a skid recently with issues.

The last thing we need is for another team to go down for an extended period of time because of coronavirus.

Hopefully, Nebraska only ends up missing one game. Missing more would be a real kick in the gut, and there’s not a single person who wants to see that happen.

P.S.: As I’ve said many times before, if you ever get the chance to visit Lincoln, you have to do it. It’s awesome.
