Don’t count on hearing anything from Mike Gundy and the crew until decisions are made from a higher level:

The concept of borrowing Iowa and Nebraska would be incredible – fascinating to see how a traditional Big Ten team fares.

For context: all the reports out say that the Big Ten is cancelling their season but Iowa and Nebraska were the only two schools who voted to play.

• Here are the two biggest barriers to a season taking place in college football:

The first is liability. It’s why to you and I and the players and pretty much everyone involved, just one single player getting COVID-19 and having some sort of long-term disability (or worse) sounds like a very small percentage (and it is). But with how high-stakes (and highly emotional) everything is right now, even being exposed to that level of liability if you are a school president or a group of regents is incredibly uncomfortable.

The second problem is related to the first. If you’re going to expose yourself, you need to have a more level playing field between the “employer” and the “employee” because you need to be able to enforce the rules of the game (i.e. keep players in a bubble like the NBA is doing). [PFB]
