Scott: CU joining early 'worse than 50-50`

Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott says chances aren`t good Colorado will join his conference before the 2012 season.

At what point does this stop being a bargaining point and start becoming a reality? Seriously - what date are you CU Buff fans willing to put on that? - JJ

We Have Issues: Texas Longhorns Week 2 - Burnt Orange Nation

Texas has issues. I just like saying that. Even more, I like them admitting it. Oh, wait, they're talking about football? I thought they were talking about something else. - JJ

Penn player who killed self had brain disease - CFB News

A detailed examination of the brain of a Penn football player who committed suicide showed he had the same disease caused by hard hits that has been associated with NFL players. The New York Times first reported Monday that Owen Thomas was in the early stages of chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, a disease that has been linked to depression and impulse control, primarily among NFL players.

This is going to become a bigger issue as time goes on. In the meantime, the NFL wants an 18-game season, mostly because they really care about their players and want you to see them more often. - JJ

Suspended Mizzou tailback Derrick Washington arrested again - Columbia Missourian

Less than two weeks before his arraignment for felony charges, former MU tailback Derrick Washington was arrested early Sunday morning on suspicion of domestic assault. Needless to say, Washington's future is looking cloudier and cloudier. -HM

Husker volleyball’s Delano, Banwarth earn Big 12 player of the week honors

Two stars for the Nebraska volleyball team were rewarded for the Cornhuskers’ thrilling, come-from-behind win over then-No. 3 Illinois on Saturday, as Brooke Delano and Kayla Banwarth each earned conference player of the week honors.

We need more coverage of the volleyball team. If you're a fan and interesting in writing about them, please contact me. - cornnation@gmail.com - JJ

Big Ten won't be easy for Nebraska - College Baseball

The Huskers sent a statement around the country earlier this summer when they abruptly announced they were leaving the Big 12 for the Big Ten next fall. Many Nebraska officials and fans were ecstatic it decided to leave Texas and the Big 12 behind.Others viewed the move as a potential massive mistake for some sports, particularly the baseball program. Those concerns are warranted.

If you consider yourself a Nebraska baseball fan, this is a must read article by Kendall Rogers. Hell, even if you could care less about baseball, but find yourself bitching about Mike Anderson, you need to read the article, if for no other reason than to educate yourself about the challenges Nebraska will face when it moves to the Big Ten (and so you don't sound like a complete jackass when you're talking to someone who actually follows college baseball.) I hope the move works out for the "other" sports at Nebraska. Beyond volleyball, things are going to be much, much tougher than they were before. - JJ
