Big Ten Commissioner Kevin Warren has opened up about the Nebraska football program after they were in some hot water during the summer.

In an interview with Sam McKewon of the Omaha World-Herald, Warren talked about how his feelings about the program have always been positive. He said:

“My feelings about Nebraska football have always been strong, have always been positive, and they’ll remain strong and positive,” Warren said. “Nebraska’s an incredibly valued member of the Big Ten.”

He also touched on the lawsuit over the summer when eight Cornhuskers players sued the conference after they decided to postpone the season. Warren said:

“Any issues with parents and the lawsuit — that’s passion,” Warren said. “And I’d rather deal with people who are passionate because I’m a passionate person. It tells me they care, they’re concerned, they work hard, and I have no doubt, from a football perspective, Scott Frost will continue to build that program, continue to get better, and they’ll be competing for Big Ten championships and they’ll be back on the national stage.”

Nebraska finished the 2020 season at 3-5, which was good for fifth in the Big Ten West division.
