    Two Nebraska players facing 2½-year suspensions enter transfer portal


    Not surprisingly, two football players’ time in Lincoln is likely coming to an end.
    Saturday morning, a Nebraska football official confirmed that both Hunt and LeGrone have placed their names into the NCAA transfer database, although how much interest they will garner from other schools is certainly up in the air. As of now, no criminal charges have been filed against either player. There is, however, an open investigation and there are no statute of limitations when it comes to sexual assault cases.

    In addition to freeing up a couple scholarships, this is a negative "publicity issue" for the school and undoubtedly a team "distraction"; Frost is probably extremely glad they're leaving.

    Joe Burrow: I wanted to go to Nebraska, but they told me I wasn’t good enough


    The legend of Joe Burrow is well-told by now. A guy who barely got a scholarship at Ohio State, waited his turn, realized his turn wasn’t coming, re-invented himself at LSU, and is now bound for a Heisman Trophy. The adopted son of Louisiana has put together one of the best passing seasons in college football history — 77.9 percent completion (on pace to shatter Colt McCoy‘s single-season FBS record), 10.7 yards per attempt, 48 touchdowns against just six interceptions with a 201.47 efficiency rating (on pace to break Tua Tagovailoa‘s record) — while guiding the Bayou Bengals to the No. 1 seed in the College Football Playoff.

    It’s a season they’ll remember forever in Louisiana, and one they’d like to forget in Nebraska.

    During an interview with ESPN’s Tom Rinaldi in Saturday’s edition of College GameDay, Burrow shared that he really wanted to be a Cornhusker all along.

    “I had one offer after my junior year of high school, and it was my dad’s team. I wanted to go to Nebraska,” he said, via 247Sports. “They told me I wasn’t good enough.”

    Burrow played high school football in Athens, Ohio, but he spent much of his youth in Lincoln, where his father, Joey Burrow, was an assistant coach. Joey played at Nebraska, and he coached Joe’s older brothers, Jamie and Dan Burrow, who were also Cornhuskers. Joey Burrow was on staff at Ohio U. during Joe’s high school years, and for a time his only FBS offer was from the hometown Bobcats, which he dubbed a “pity offer.”

    He wanted more. He wanted Nebraska.

    The good news for those in Huskerland is that Burrow was recruited during the Mike Riley era. This is all Riley’s fault, right? There’s no egg on Scott Frost‘s face, is there?

    Oh, no.

    Re: 90 minutes ago tOSU's Joe Burrow announced he was leaving as a grad transfer. I would suppose Nebraska is an option but as Scott Frost told me last month, "You think he's better than what we got?"

    Hell Yeah, I do!!!

    Nebraska announces partnership in first-ever program that will ‘maximize value of a student-athlete’s brand’


    With the NIL train barrelling down the tracks, Nebraska football specifically and the university in general is getting ahead of the game.

    Long an opponent of the trend towards college football players profiting off of their names, images and likenesses (NIL), Scott Frost did an abrupt about-face earlier this week.

    “I think that NIL decisions will benefit us greatly,” the Nebraska football head coach said Monday. ” There are very few places in the whole country where players’ name, image, likeness personality can benefit them more than Nebraska just because of the fan base, the excitement around here.”

    Tuesday, the trigger for the change of heart was unveiled as Nebraska announced that it has partnered with Opendorse to launch “the first-ever program designed to help student-athletes build their individual brands.” The program will allow all 650-plus of the university’s student-athletes, including all Nebraska football players, to maximize their social-media profile and, ultimately, profit off of them when federal NIL legislation is enacted.

    From the university’s release:

    To provide its student-athletes with the best possible readiness tools, Nebraska has partnered with athlete marketing platform Opendorse to launch the Ready Now Program.

    The Ready Now Program, powered by Opendorse Ready™, provides three core pillars to student-athlete success: Assessment, Education, and Performance – tailored to assist each individual athlete.

    Founded by Nebraska Football alumni Blake Lawrence and Adi Kunalic, Opendorse has become a proven market leader in helping sports organizations and their athletes prepare and execute social media programs to increase the value of their Name, Image and Likeness (NIL). More than 10,000 athletes currently use Opendorse to maximize their value in collaboration with partners on social media. Opendorse has partnered with the NHL, NFLPA, PGA Tour and others while brands like Pepsi, Procter & Gamble and EA Sports also use the platform.

    “Nebraska has always been a leader in college athletics,” Nebraska athletic director Bill Moos said in a statement. “With that spirit in mind we are excited to partner with Opendorse. This agreement will provide all of our student-athletes the education and assessment tools they need to navigate the complexities of social media and maximize their brand in the digital world.

    “As a father of a current Division I football player, I have a good understanding of how important social media is in the daily lives of our student-athletes. The ability to educate and assist our young men and women in this particular area is mutually beneficial for Nebraska and our student-athletes.

    *SPIDER-MAN POINTING MEME*. Nebraska rolled out a groundbreaking new program yesterday that it absolutely came up with all by itself and has certainly never been done before.

    Yup – truly a one-of-a-kind program they've got there in Lincoln. It's so brilliant, it makes me wonder why nobody has ever tried to do something like that bef... Oh.

    Obviously, I can read and see that they're just claiming to the first to do it "for every student-athlete," but I still think it's pretty weak to blatantly ape an idea and then act like a trailblazer when you roll it out.

    But hey, if these are the triumphs you've gotta celebrate to cling to relevance, don't let me stop you. Maybe in another two years, you can borrow the idea of winning a Big Ten title!

    malibuspeedrace First Team All Big Ten

    Defiantly thought this bump was going to be for the basketball team borrowing football players to fill out their roster for the B1G tournament.
    Can't say i was disappointed though.

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    Corn now taking part in Fredo's "mega camp." If Fredo is going to essentially open up their campus and facilities to other Big Ten schools as a tool for making recruiting inroads into SW Ohio, then I think Fredo should have received its last payday in Ohio Stadium.
  12. ORD_Buckeye

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    And I know that Fredo can probably replace those games with bodybag/payday games with their new pimps in the Big Ten, but what they can't do is use a game in Ohio Stadium to recruit Ohio kids while the other Ohio MAC schools will still be able to use it.
