    Did the Big 12 screw Nebraska?

    This whole Nebraska to the Holiday Bowl situation reminds me of a classic WWF moment. Does this parallel make sense to anybody else?

    That is awesome!!

    I had not thought of that comparison. If so, I don't think I mind.

    The only problem is that this could turn Herbie Husker into Bret Hart, and I like the Hitman, but not the Huskman.

    I hope the Big XII actually grew some balls and busted Nebraska down to the lowest bowl they could.

    Bret Hart leaving for the WCW is a lot like Nebraska going to the Big 10. Aging former powerhouse leaving for more money in an inferior league.

    Isn't the holiday bowl a better bowl than the insight?

    Not anymore. The Big 12 bowl agreements shuffled after last year. The Insight moved up. The Holiday moved down.
