    Why the lovefest for NU changeing conferences?

    I saw the same type of lovefest when the Brewers left the AL for the NL. "Oh how gerat the rivalries with the Cubs will be!", "Oh how much of a better fit they will be in the NL Central!". Look where they are now. I just don't get the idea of this being any better of a rivalry than NU / KSU was or NU / CU was. In the short term, they will get some feeling each other out, but in the long term, as team's success waxes and wanes, I don't think it would be much different that what NU had with thier other neighbors.

    It won't be much different. Except Big Red fans will have to travel farther to go to football games. No easy day trips for them anymore.

    A large number of teams were threatening to bolt from the Big 12, even teams that were urging Nebraska to stay were actively pursuing options other than staying in the Big 12. Nebraska would have been a moron to not move over to the Big 10. Nebraska had the pedigree to make the move and did what any other sensible person would do that was in their position.

    While I certainly get the proactive move, it does seem strange. Kind of like lavishing praise on the first people to run out of a burning building.

    Re: Why the lovefest for NU changeing conferences?

    The reason is quite simple.....People like Martha Tyrrell now have the opportunity to hype Nebraska and dont think that 1700 isnt already on board with Huskers 24/7!!!


    Martha Tyrrell's ratings....Iowa first then Nebraska and Iowa State fading to irrelvancy.....Clone fans better brace themselves for the Big Red Hoard coming at them cause all that sports radio is gonna be Iowa Hawks First Followed by the Huskers and maybe a scrap now and then for ISU!!!!!


    Rumor has it that 1700 will air all Nebraska Football Games....I guess whats next is Creighton Bluejay Basketball in the winter!!!!!!!!!!!!


    It really sucks to be a Clone Fan right now ....

    Quoting Gary Barta...."We can VOID the contract with Iowa State if we have to"


    Count on that happening too boys........FUTURE LOOKS BAD BOYS AND I MEAN BAD
