Nebraska DL chimes in on Indiana's decision to ditch B1G logo ahead of Outback Bowl
Nebraska defensive lineman Damion Daniels has shared his thoughts on Indiana’s decision to ditch the Big Ten logo.
The Hoosiers are playing Ole Miss on Jan. 2 in the Outback Bowl but they’re not wearing the logo on the helmet because they potentially feel like they were the second-best team in the conference. The Citrus Bowl instead took Northwestern (the Big Ten runner-up) to play against Auburn.
Indiana didn’t feel like it got much help from the B1G during the season. Not only did the Hoosiers get bumped out of the B1G Championship Game because of a rules change that benefited Ohio State, but Indiana felt it was snubbed of a New Year’s Six appearance and a spot in the Citrus Bowl. It’s pretty clear IU feels it could’ve been helped by the powers that be in the B1G.

In the tweet, Daniels is alluding to the fact that the Hoosiers aren’t getting any hate for this, but when the Cornhuskers wanted to originally play in August, they were torched by a lot of the media. It even got analysts such and Paul Finebaum and Desmond Howard advocating for Nebraska to leave the conference.
We’ll have to see if more Cornhuskers players speak out about the Hoosiers doing this going into the game on Saturday.
