Okay, EVERYBODY REMAIN CALM … but U. of Nebraska president Ted Carter may have just spilled the beans on the return of the Big Ten football season … saying an announcement is coming Tuesday night!!!
The revelation was made via a hot mic at a presser minutes ago … when Carter was speaking with the University’s National Strategic Research Institute director.
“We’re getting ready to announce the Huskers and Big Ten football tonight,” Carter said.
“Oh really?!,” Bob Hinson said. “I heard that that was happening.”

LISTEN — like we said, do NOT panic … but this sure as hell sounds like the season has been saved, according to the moment captured by KETV NewsWatch 7 in Omaha.
It’s been an uphill battle for the conference — with others like the SEC, Big 12 and ACC deciding to play through the pandemic … and Big Ten and Pac 12 voting to wait.
The move resulted in a lawsuit filed by 8 Nebraska players against the Big Ten … who claimed the conference didn’t follow the proper protocols in coming up with its decision.
There had been rumblings for days about a possible change of heart … and now it seems like it’s really going to happen.
