Nebraska Accepts An Invitation to Join The Big 10

It's done. Nebraska has officially accepted an invitation to join the Big 10 Conference

I'm in shock... We knew this was going to happen, yet now that it has, I'm not sure what to say, or at least anything that's different than what I've already said about it. 

There will be plenty of questions coming up, and we'll deal with them shortly. Probably the most important is - when do we start Big 10 play? 

[Update: Nebraska will begin Big 10 play in 2011.]

In any case, Husker fans - we've joined the Big 10. I'd like to hear your comments about it - whether good, bad or indifferent. For Big 10 fans - I guess we're the newest guys on the block, for at least the next few hours. 

The University of Nebraska will have a press conference at 4:45 pm to formally announce what's just happened.
