Husker Leadership Responds to Big Ten Announcement

LINCOLN – In a joint statement by University of Nebraska-Lincoln Chancellor Ronnie Green, University of Nebraska System President Ted Carter, Nebraska Athletic Director Bill Moos and Nebraska Head Football Coach Scott Frost, the Huskers expressed their dissatisfaction with the Big Ten’s decision to postpone Fall sports.

“We are very disappointed in the decision by the Big Ten Conference to postpone the fall football season, as we have been and continue to be ready to play,” the statement began.

“Safety comes first. Based on the conversations with our medical experts, we continue to strongly believe the absolute safest place for our student athletes is within the rigorous safety protocols, testing procedures, and the structure and support provided by Husker Athletics.”

The Huskers will continue to explore other options for a Fall 2020 season, outside of the Big Ten. The statement ended by saying, “We will continue to consult with medical experts and evaluate the situation as it emerges. We hope it may be possible for our student athletes to have the opportunity to compete.”
