It is ridiculous to even consider a move right now but in an era where athletic departments are hemorrhaging red ink and revenue streams are turning into revenue trickles, moving to another conference that would guarantee diminished future revenue is insanity. Not to mention the $50 million or more that Nebraska would be required to pay the B10 just to leave the conference.My daughter's grandfather, an incessant and certifiably insane doomsday prepper, told me prior to 2012 that even if the world didn't end prior to the conclusion of the Mayan calendar that the world as "we knew it" would end in the near future. The man prepped for Y2K, prepped for 2012, is prepping for the world after a vaccine is presented, and will likely be either prepped or deeply invested in a series of "I told you so's" for the next issue that shapes our world.
This brings me to my only points, Nebraska should explore all options in 2020 and if that means that our world as we know it ends and the team ends up playing in the Big XII they should do so.
FY2019 Total Revenue per P5 Conference:
Big Ten: $781.5M
Even if Moos somehow thought that a move from the B10 to the B12 was a good idea, he would be laughed out of the president's office within minutes.
