    Nebraska Regent Meeting Blog

    Not sure if someone else posted this already - but the Omaha paper has a live blog set for today - about 45 minutes from now it is set to start:

    Live Blog: Nebraska Board of Regents meeting - Omaha.com

    I think I'll open a tab and listen for the typing and check updates - can't believe by early afternoon the next big domino falls - sure get faster after that!

    12:15 p.m.:If there was any doubt where Nebraska is headed in its future conference affiliation, that should have been laid to rest by the note card Athletic Director Tom Osborne carried in hand when he arrived at the N.U. Board of Regents meeting Friday.

    He sat down and started reviewing the hand-written notes on the card, at the top of which were written "Big 10'' and "Reasons.''

    The regents shortly thereafter broke for lunch. They are to take up the issue of conference alignment when they reconvene at 1 p.m. -- Henry Cordes

    Obviously TO wants to go to the Big Ten. I wonder how the regents feel about the ties and history with ISU/KSU/KU/OU/OSU/MU. Also, I wonder who will present the Big 12/Pac-10 TV deal to the regents that was mentioned in the other thread?

    I think it's probably a rubber stamp by the regents at this point though, I don't think they'd let it go this far if they weren't going to approve what TO says.

    Probably. I'm also thinking if things were still in play, Powers or somebody else from the Big 12 would be addressing the regents (unless that is not permitted).
