    Conference Realignment Question???

    My question is, if Nebraska, Mizzou, or whoever, acccept an offer to go to another conference, when does it take place??? In other words, if Nebraska says they will be joining the Big 10 on Friday, do they play the next year in the Big 12 and then go to the Big 10 for the 2011-2012 season, or do they ditch the Big 12 and play the 2010-2011 season in the Big 10?

    Re: Conference Realignment Question???

    I saw this mentioned about an hour ago on another site. Apparently if it happens before July 1, you start play in your new conference beginning with Fall 2011 football. If it happens after that, you start with Fall 2012 football. I don't believe anybody can pull out of existing 2010 football schedules, short of simply forfeiting the game and not showing up. I don't know how "leaving early" and the associated penalties fit into all this, though.


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    It would most likely would not take place for a minimum of two years. Most likely the beginning of the 2012-2013 school year.

    However, Nebraska can choose take a stiffer penalty of more, surrendering 80% of the Big 12 revenue if they start with the Big 12 in 2011.

    Re: Conference Realignment Question???

    They have to give 2 years notice & payback 50% of whatever revenues paid out to them. If they leave any earlier than that, they are a "breaching member" and have to pay back 75-100% of revenues paid to them, depending how much notice they give (from 1 year to 6 months)

    I also have heard that any notice must be given by June 30th.

    So for 2010, there will be a Big XII football season and more likely than not there will be one 2011, after that who knows?
