In Lincoln, the world may seem to be ending. However, in the Huskers’ locker room, nothing is over just yet. After the loss to Colorado, here’s Nebraska safety Mohamed Barry:
Mo Barry: "No one's going to care about Colorado when we're in the Big Ten Championship. And that's a fact." He was making a bigger point that the main goal set before the season remains. "Whatever needs to get fixed, we need to fix this week."

What Barry is saying is completely true. If the Huskers were to move on and get to the Big Ten Championship, what difference does it make that the team lost to Colorado by three points? None, really, unless national title aspirations are at stake. Then, it could bite Nebraska.
But otherwise, in the world of what matters within the Big Ten, a loss at Colorado is a loss at Colorado. Nebraska needs to get better. That’s what matters.
And Barry recognizes that.
