MAKING THE MOVE
Steven M. Sipple alluded to the potential of an all-Big Ten football schedule in his Monday column, and it became a reality Thursday.
So, what does that mean? Is there still a chance the season isn't played at all? When can we expect a revised schedule?
MARTINEZ OPENS UP
Somewhat overshadowed by the Big Ten's revelation is Adrian Martinez joining the “No Struggle No Story” podcast for a candid conversation about last season.
A couple highlights:
* Martinez says injuries and losing wore on him mentally
* 48-7 loss to Ohio State before "College GameDay" and a national audience "definitely got to (me) a bit."
* Says he "wouldn't want it any other way" in talking about potential quarterback competition this fall
A pair of non-conference teams who were slated to play Nebraska football this season shared thoughts on the Big Ten's decision.
Central Michigan says it continues to work with the Mid-American Conference on schedule parameters; adds it is committed to a model that prioritizes health and safety.
Cincinnati athletic director John Cunningham says the news is "disappointing" and that the program was "looking forward" to playing the Huskers in Lincoln.
