We have seen lots of interesting things that have stirred Big Ten Nation. Thanks for the cards and letters!! How much of a loss is WR De’Mornay Pierson-El for Nebraska? – Matt P. It is a huge loss for the Cornhuskers. Pierson-El, who is out six to eight weeks with a foot issue, was one of the Big Ten’s most electrifying players, a true go-the-distance guy who can score each time
