Nebraska to the Big 10?

Wow. Rumors today are that the University of Nebraska will join the Big 10. I confess, stick-in-the-mud that I am, I always missed the old Big 8, with its OU-NU rivalry, Colorado, Missouri, and, occasionally, Iowa State and KU in the mix. I always resented UT's intrusion into the mix.

That said, I think that the Big 10 will be better for NU than the Big 12. Not regarding sports, but academically. Just about every Big 10 school is academically strong, unlike the Big 12. ("Oklahoma State" - 'nuf said.)

Maybe the old NU joke will become a reality: NU academics will become something that the football team can be proud of.
