Scott Frost: Nebraska Isn't Tethered to Big Ten

Nebraska head football coach Scott Frost spoke to the media today. He essentially said that while he hopes the team plays a Big Ten schedule, if the conference opts out then they're up for grabs:

"I ask the players to fight for us all the time on the football field," Frost said. "Sometimes the head coach's responsibility is to fight for what they want too. Our football players want to play. The coaches want to coach. We want to play football this year at the University of Nebraska."

Reading tea leaves, it seems like the Big Ten have backed off a bit from the immediacy of their decision to cancel football this Fall. Dan Patrick and the Detroit Free Press reported that Big Ten presidents voted 12-2 to cancel football season, with the holdouts being Iowa and Nebraska. Pete Thamel has since reported that the Big Ten denies there was a formal vote. Now we see that Nebraska would be up for grabs if the Big Ten cancels the season.

What a wild day in the college football streets.
