Correct me if I’m wrong but at the beginning of the pandemic it was Nebraska high school boys basketball that was captivating ESPN audiences as all other sports grinded to a complete halt.

Nebraska has now announced that they are going to be allowed to have 50% attendance for the Nebraska Spring Game which will be on May 1st at 1 p.m. Nebraska’s Athletic Director Bill Moos said they are hoping for 75% by the time the spring game comes around.

Regardless, could it be the biggest crowd of any sporting event since the pandemic began?

Nebraska gave sports to the country at the beginning of the pandemic. Maybe Nebraska will make it’s mark TOWARD the HOPEFUL end of the pandemic.*

*This Friday Flakes article in no way should serve as a source of authority about whether we are moving “toward” the end of the pandemic. The author is not an expert in any sense of the word. Nor should it be construed to think it is the right time to be “hopeful” for a positive outcome at this point. Hope is subjective and thus cannot be defined except by the holder of said “hope.” Also, this is a reminder that Friday Flakes is merely a Friday morning article on a site about Nebraska sports.
