    I cant even begin to tell you how ecstatic I would be if the Big 10 denied them membership because of this. Few things have ever made me happier than that potential news!

    Would they try to come back to Big 12? Would be awesome to deny them.

    They have already joined the CIC so that won't happen. We'll just have to enjoy this for what it is.

    Re: UNL gets the boot

    Wait a minute, I thought all the Big 10 folks have continue to say how much more important the academic research dollars are than the athletics....

    Exposing a little hypocrisy here?

    I thought the Big 10 has highly prestigious academic league? Not anymore...

    Re: UNL gets the boot

    That's pretty impressive that Nebraska had a 102 year run, given their location.

    Re: UNL gets the boot

    That is really funny. The Big Ten can no longer claim that all of their schools are members of the AAU now.

    Re: UNL gets the boot

    UNL joined the AAU in 1909. Perlman said this marks the first time the AAU has ended an institution's membership, though the organization has succeeded in encouraging some members to withdraw in the past. He said there is no opportunity for UNL to appeal the AAU's decision.
    That clip from the article is really great.

    Could they claim that in the past? I didn't think iowa was a member.
