[01/05/21]   Husker corner Cam Taylor-Britt will return for another season

Updated 1 hr ago

More good news became public for Nebraska’s defense Monday as cornerback Cam Taylor-Britt announced he will be back in 2021.

The decision comes two days after senior outside linebacker JoJo Domann revealed his intentions to return. It means the Blackshirts will again have perhaps their two most versatile players in the fold next year. Taylor-Britt, a junior, was a second-team All-Big Ten selection by the league’s coaches.

“After much thought and consideration … Let’s take it back for one more ride Husker Nation!” Taylor-Britt wrote on Twitter.

The 6-foot, 205-pound corner from Alabama logged 28 tackles with four pass breakups and two interceptions in the Huskers' eight games this season. He led NU with six passes defended as well, despite missing nearly four full quarters because of a pair of targeting ejections. Perhaps his highlight play of the season came against Purdue, when he jumped to knock down a deep ball intended for All-Big Ten receiver David Bell late in a tight game.
Defensive backs coach Travis Fisher said in mid-December that Taylor-Britt had a “very high ceiling,” calling him “one of the top corners, definitely in the Big Ten.” Fisher, who played in the NFL, hinted then that Taylor-Britt had performed well enough to consider going pro, from his lockdown role on the edge to helping on special teams to being a great teammate.

“The future is very bright for Cam,” Fisher said. “… I’m going to have to talk to Cam as well about where do we go after you have a decent year. Where do we go from here? How can we make that year even better going into the future?"

Taylor-Britt’s decision is a critical development in how the Nebraska secondary will materialize in 2021. NU’s other starting corner, senior Dicaprio Bootle, is preparing for the NFL draft. Senior safeties Deontai Williams and Marquel Dismuke have not yet declared their intentions.

[09/01/20]   White House set up Big Ten call to offer assistance for fall seasonAustin Ward
ByAustin WardPublished on September 1, 2020

COLUMBUS — The fight for bringing back Big Ten football has reached the White House.

Sources with direct knowledge of the situation confirmed to Lettermen Row that government officials reached out to commissioner Kevin Warren on Monday night to set up a call designed to see if there was anything President Donald Trump could do to help the league resume the postponed fall season. The primary objective for the Tuesday conference call, according to sources, was to discuss the availability of testing, which is believed to be one of the biggest looming hurdles for the Big Ten when it comes to planning any sort of return to action.

The new, cheaper, saliva-based tests could be the key that unlocks the door back to the Horseshoe and stadiums around the conference. And the White House might be willing to assist in that effort by potentially designating part of its supply to the Big Ten after buying 150 million rapid tests last week from Abbott Laboratories. It’s unclear exactly how that distribution would be handled or precisely how many tests the Big Ten would need at this point, but Trump was expected to discuss that situation with Warren after previously making it clear he wants to see the richest league in the country back on the field.

“I’ve been calling for football to be back, including Big Ten,” Trump said at a rally on Friday in New Hampshire. “Big Ten, get with it. Open up your season, Big Ten.”

The discussions about returning to play have been gaining steam over the last week, and one new proposal emerged that would include a kickoff around Thanksgiving for the league. Warren was adamant in his recent public letter to the Big Ten community that the fall cancellation decision would not be revisited, but multiple sources not authorized to speak publicly about the league deliberations indicated that it’s possible an October start date could be considered due to the availability of these new tests, changing health guidelines and some improving positivity rates in the league footprint.

President Trump has made it well known that he would like to see that happen for the Big Ten, and the White House has now reached out directly to Kevin Warren to see how it can help.

This is a developing story, and Lettermen Row will continue to update the information as it becomes available.

[08/28/20]   BREAKING NEWS:
Earlier this month, the Big Ten Conference sent shockwaves throughout the college football world when it decided to cancel the fall football season. The move was made by the conference’s presidents and chancellors, who felt moving forward with a season during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic would not be in the best interest of the league’s student-athletes.

Hours later, the Pac-12 postponed all athletics until the end of the calendar year. The decision was met with a sharp criticism from players, coaches, athletic directors and media pundits alike.

On Friday, CBS Sports’ Dennis Dodd confirmed that the Big Ten might be changing course.

"@CBSSports can confirm @BigTen is considering a schedule that would start the season Thanksgiving week. Could be pushed back to original January start date. Story broken by @jaypo1961," Dodd tweeted.

Shortly after Dodd's tweet, The Athletic's Bruce Feldman reported further by tweeting, "SOURCE: Big Ten coaches are meeting on a call right now. Am told 'it's a real possibility' that the Big Ten may try to reverse course and play later this fall."

The Big Ten announced it would be canceling the fall football season on Aug. 11, and that it would be looking into the conducting the season in the spring.

“The mental and physical health and welfare of our student-athletes has been at the center of every decision we have made regarding the ability to proceed forward,” said Big Ten Commissioner Kevin Warren. “As time progressed and after hours of discussion with our Big Ten Task Force for Emerging Infectious Diseases and the Big Ten Sports Medicine Committee, it became abundantly clear that there was too much uncertainty regarding potential medical risks to allow our student-athletes to compete this fall.

“We know how significant the student-athlete experience can be in shaping the future of the talented young women and men who compete in the Big Ten Conference. Although that knowledge made this a painstaking decision, it did not make it difficult.”

COMMENTS
Almost immediately, Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields begin a petition in an attempt to forced the Big Ten to reverse its decision. The petition gained thousands of signatures.

Parents of Big Ten players also demanded answers from the conference, claiming they were not given reasons why the decision was made. A group of Nebraska football parents even threatened legal action against the conference.

[08/17/20]   Parents of Nebraska football players issue letter to Big Ten
Nebraska football players parents issued a letter to the Big Ten on Sunday.

Published: Aug. 16, 2020 at 1:51 PM MST
LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - The parents of Nebraska football players issued a letter to the Big Ten on Sunday. The parents posted the letter on Twitter noting their dislike of the Big Ten’s ruling to postpone the 2020 Fall Season.

York head football coach Glen Snodgrass helped write the letter as his son, Garrett, is a linebacker for the Huskers.

“Transparency has been a major issue for me. If there is data out there that is truly is not in a safe place right now, by all means, let’s close it down. But they haven’t come out with any of that and maybe it’s out there, but as far as I know I haven’t heard anything,” said Snodgrass.

A copy of the letter can be read below:

“An open letter to Big Ten Commissioner Kevin Warren,

We, as parents of Nebraska Cornhusker football players, are writing this letter to express our displeasure in the recent decision to postpone the 2020 fall sports season. Although we appreciate the committee’s effort in this matter, we have questions concerning the facts and data behind this decision. Finally, we would urge you to seek out a formal plan that includes input from players and coaches from each institution regarding decisions of this nature.

Upon posting the season, you stated, “After hours of discussion with our Big Ten Task Force for Emerging Infectious Diseases and the Big Ten Sports Medicine Committee, it became abundantly clear that there was too much uncertainly regarding potential medical risks to allow our student-athletes to compete this fall.” One could argue that “risks and uncertainties” have surrounded this virus since March, so why the drastic change from August 5th to August 11th? If the decision was based on medical data and not conjecture, why then was there no transparency to share it? Our confusion in this decision is exacerbated when we hear reports from other conferences’ medical experts. One such example is Dr. Cameron Wolfe, the Chairman of the ACC’s Medical Advisory Team. He told Sports Business Daily, he “thinks football can safely be played this season.” The players and parents of the Big Ten deserve to see the medical data which shows that our sons are more at risk playing than living on campus, or even returning home without the medical protocols that are currently in place at UNL.

Our biggest concern as parents is the mental and physical well being of our sons. We fully appreciate your “care and concern for our athletes’ mental and physical health and welfare” that was shared in your postponement press release. The decision to release the schedule only to postpone the season less than a week later based on “risks and uncertainties,” has taken an emotional toll on our sons. The complications of this decision will have ramifications for the future of these athletes. Physically, we feel it is not in their best interest to play two seasons within the 2021 year. Football is a unique and violent sport. Their bodies need time to heal and recover and we are concerned that these back to back seasons could cause more physical harm harm than COVID-19 could. We would argue that the stringent protocol put in place by the University of Nebraska to screen, migrate risk, and treat our sons is exceptional, and goes above and beyond the Big Ten protocols. We cannot commend Coach Frost and his staff enough. They have listened to the advice of UNMC experts and have been ahead of the curve when it comes to putting the physical well being of our athletes first, and we feel completely comfortable with our sons in their care.

ADVERTISEMENT

Our final concern is that this decision was made without equal representation from student-athletes of all Big Ten schools. On August 11th, you stated “While I know our decision today will be disappointing in many ways for our thousands of student-athletes and their families, I am heartened and inspired by their resilience, their insightful and discerning thoughts, and their participation through our conversations to this point.” We are unaware of any conversation you had personally with Nebraska athletes and/or parents. And yes, our athletes are resilient, but this has taken a mental and emotional toll on them.

We do not want to make light of the seriousness of this terrible disease, but it is not going away. Our sons are willing to assume the risk and commit to mitigating risks this fall. There are no guarantees these risks will be gone by the spring season. Athletes understand the risks involved in playing sports under normal circumstances. While COVID-19 can complicate these risks, we feel they are manageable with the medical protocol in place to have a fall season.

On August 5th, you stated that you would feel comfortable allowing your own son to play in the Big Ten this season with the medical protocols that have been put in place, which we parents unilaterally support. Six days later you made a complete about-face. We are simply asking for transparency in why that decision changed so quickly, what medical data was used to make the decision to postpone, and for the Big Ten to put in place a formal process to get equal input from players and coaches of all schools regarding decisions of this nature.

As Husker football parents, we are united in our support and endorsement of the UNL football staff and medical team in their quest to prepare and complete a healthy and successful fall season, emotionally, physically and socially. In case we haven’t been clear enough, WE WANT OUR BOYS TO PLAY THIS FALL! Thank you for your time and consideration. GO BIG RED!!

Sincerely,

Concerned Parents of 81 Husker Football Players
