A Nebraska linebacker had a simple message for the fans following his team’s loss to Colorado on Saturday afternoon.
The message: No one is going to care about this by the end of the season.
Huskers linebacker Mohamed Barry said on Monday that the Huskers are going to be in the Big Ten Championship Game. By that point in the season, everyone will have gotten over the loss to the Buffaloes.
“Nobody’s going to care about Colorado when we’re in the Big Ten Championship,” he told reporters on Monday.

Barry isn’t saying that no one should care about the loss to Colorado. It was a brutal loss and Huskers fans – and players – should be disappointed.
The Nebraska linebacker is just making a larger point that everything they want to accomplish is still in play.
If the Huskers do end up making the Big Ten Championship Game, the loss to Colorado will be much easier to swallow.
Nebraska has a lot of work to do to make that happen, though. The Huskers will start on Saturday against Northern Illinois. Scott Frost’s team starts Big Ten play the week after.
