    Nebraska wants in the Big Ten way more than the Big Ten wants Nebraska

    At least, that is my conclusion from reading this article.

    I am starting to doubt that it will. If it does, it'll be in a way that doesn't affect us at all (like the Big Ten taking Rutgers). I think Nebraska is stuck with the Big 12, as much as they may hate it.

    I agree. Shatel tries to keep stirring the pot and get NU fans all excited about Big Ten membership. But like the op said, I think the Big Ten is not as fired up about Nebraska joining like Shatel and some NU fans would like to have you think.

    I think Shatel needs to talk to more Hawk fans in the Omaha area. Most of them I talk to aren't all that excited about NU in the B-10, but then I guess what fans think doesn't really matter any how, no matter what school you support.

    Nebraska benefits from the big 12 unequal revenue share. the big 12 is not hurting them.

    For the "haves" the B12 conference is fantastic. UT, A&M, OU, Nebraska are all sitting pretty in this conference. Seriously, they have tons of cash and compete for NC's and BCS games pretty regularly. Were it not for a couple of coaching changes (A&M, Nebby) in the past 10 years, Nebby and A&M would be right with OU and UT in terms of winning.
