So IF texass and ou move to the SEC it's for the academics?Its amazing that people still believe that conference affiliation decisions are being made by athletic directors or that sports programs are a major factor. Universities are academic institutions first and foremost. The decision to affiliate with other universities is made by boards, trustees, or other controlling entities and academic considerations are central and primary.
Not true. The conference affiliation had little if anything to do with NU's football issues. Try poor leadership at the Athletic Dept. and decisions in coaching for about 90% of it. It didn't have to be where it is today if their had been good leadership running things. Our issues would have existed if we were in the BIG 10, Big 12 or any conference.The Big 10 has hurt Nebraska. What good does a season of playing Purdue and Northwestern do for the program? Where are all of those big time Illinois and Indiana recruits? Play games in Louisiana and Georgia instead.
Ha Ha! It would be ugly.Texas and Oklahoma to the SEC.
Nebraska and Kansas to the SEC.
Try going to an SEC board and floating those two options and see what kind of response you get?
Exactly. The loss of Nebraska would piss off half of the schools in the B1G. Currently we give them a shot at beating a "blue blood".Where have you heard this? I admit I live in Pa but honestly I’ve never heard or read anything from other B1G schools about being unhappy with Nebraska
Why the heck not? I know people look at the program now and think we can't compete, but that is after the disastrous effects of moving to a conference with no recruiting value for NU. Moving to the SEC would improve recruiting 100-fold. Kansas would be a huge win for the SEC in basketball. OU and Texas will have. hard time getting out of the Big 12 because of opposition from Texas and Okie St, but NU and Kansas could more easily make the move.
IF a bargain was made it was for Nebraska to live up to their own tradition not some elusive "Big10's" expectations.The problem with this is we live in a different world where what you have done lately counts more. They could care less about our 5 NC's and tradition but will remember every comment about the B1G and how we haven't lived up to our end of the bargain.
It‘s not the Big Ten’s fault that Nebraska sucks at football lately.The Big 10 has hurt Nebraska. What good does a season of playing Purdue and Northwestern do for the program? Where are all of those big time Illinois and Indiana recruits? Play games in Louisiana and Georgia instead.
