After reading that latest post by our man Jon got me to thinking what will Beebe and the rest of the Big 12 have to say to make Neb stay? Can they go in and say hey every year you get to play the championship in Dallas if you win the north. No thank you that sucks. You lose your rivals OU. That hasn't mean as much since the merger and to be honest they have mostly forgotten us. Hell, we are now their FIFTH biggest rival behind Texas and Osu and thats only with the older fans of the sooners. Money? Um, we would probably make more with the big 10 and more tv time. Recruits? Bottom line is this, win and they will come. So what can they do to make it better and I can only come up with really two things that will make it work
Move the championship game to what it was..... Yes the Jerry dome is a great, awesome and huge place to play but it's beyond not fair to the north in playing there every year. Words can't describe how much of an advantage it is for the south and it needs to be balanced a.s.a.p.
Make the divisions East and West instead of North and South..... In this format I propose that In the East you have NU, Baylor, TAMU, Kansas, KSU and ISU. In the west have Texas, OSU, OU, CU, Tech and whatever school they replace Mizzou with because lets be honest. Even my Grandmother in a nursing home with Alzheimer's knows they are going. Its the worst kept secret ever in the history of sports.
Other than that I really don't see a great reason for us to say and the truth as the matter is. I just want to watch the Huskers play sports and it's not football season yet. So we get to beat the living daylights out of this subject.
