The Case of a Moral Victory in Madison

October 30, 2016

Let’s talk about moral victories for a moment, shall we? According to Wikipedia, a moral victory “occurs when a person, team, army or other group loses a confrontation, and yet achieves some other moral game.”

So, did Nebraska win some kind of moral victory against Wisconsin?

“It showed we could play with the best of them,” center Dylan Utter said. “Going forward it shows that this team has a lot of fight and we’re not going to give up no matter who we play.”

In layman’s terms? Maybe.

Perception of Nebraska’s 23-17 loss will be whatever it will be.
