    I just can't blame Nebraksa with the dollars that are involved. We'd do the same thing in a heartbeat if we had the same opportunity.

    Not surprised they wanted to leave the BigTexas conference.

    How do you know ISU hasn't already accepted an offer to join the Big 10, JP is our AD and he does keep things so close to his chest!!!

    Does this mean that the Big 10 (11) is now the Big 12, and what was the Big XII is now the Big 11?

    Do you think Beebe is collecting all of these notices for a scrap book.

    I just want to make sure that he remembers his time as our commissioner.

    Colorado already gone too.

    Maybe we can trade them conference names for a team to be named later?

    With Colorado officially gone it would be the Big Ten.

    It might be hard to blame them, but it's pretty easy to call them a bunch of hypocrites.

    If it were ISU, ISU wouldn't have been hosing over 8 other schools in the conference by voting against equal revenue sharing since the inception of the conference, only to leave when the first better offer came along...

    I wanna leave the Big 12 regardless of what Texas decides on Tuesday with their meeting. If we can join the Big East, let's do it.

    Re: Nebraska to the Big 10 OFFICIAL

    What about Notre Dame - it seems I haven't heard much of that development.

    + Does NB in mean ND is out?

    + Are they still gonna call themselves the Big 10 or are they the new Big 12?

    This sucks.
