Maryland and Rutgers Join the Big Ten. Will there be any others?
While Nebraska is doing better financially than they were in the Big XII, the other Big XII schools have since passed Nebraska in terms of league revenue. But that changes in 2017, when Nebraska becomes fully vested in BTN and a new TV deal begins.
Conventional wisdom says it would be...but conventional wisdom hasn't always applied to much of anything regarding conference realignment. In reality, conference realignment will be over when Jim Delany says it's over.
Reports are that the Big Ten isn't done with realignment. Boston College and Virginia appear to be the leading candidates. But what about North Carolina and Duke?
Conference realignment is about to go nuclear. The ACC seems poised to go to 16 teams with Syracuse, Pitt, and now UConn and Rutgers. Oklahoma and Oklahoma State are headed west, and now it seems Texas Tech and Texas will join to create the Pac-16. The SEC needs to add teams as well. With the death of the Big East and Big XII, does this finally nudge Notre Dame into the Big Ten?
One of the casualties of Nebraska's move to the Big Ten is the end of the Nebraska-Kansas series, which had gone on for a national record 105 straight seasons. The two programs seemed to be mirrors: one great in football, the other great in basketball.
Nebraska and Kansas State will meet for the 95th time Thursday night, the last as members of the same conference. While tradition dies, I'd just like to see one sign that shows we're all sad to see it end.
Nebraska has settled for $9.255 million to exit the Big XII in the summer of 2011. This clears the way for Nebraska to move to a more stable conference, though at a cost in the short term.
The Big Ten Conference has announced new divisions and the 2011-2012 schedules. Despite a disruption of decades of tradition, Nebraska is not being blamed for the change. For that, Husker fans should be very happy.
Big Ten Division alignments are set to be announced at 6:00 pm Wednesday evening on Big Ten Network.
Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany knows what he wants. He wants a Big Ten Championship game in 2011 and a nine-game conference schedule in 2013. What will that do to the quality of college football?
Husker fans need something to celebrate their last season in the Big 12! That calls for a good t-shirt!
The Big Ten Network is looking for some input from Husker fans about what Big 10 fans should do when they come to Lincoln, what Big 10 uniforms Husker fans like, and what Big 10 stadiums they're most interested in visiting. Help us out with some good responses!
