    The $6 Million Question: Will Move To Big 10 Hurt Nebraska's Efforts In Texas?

    I've said from day one it's a lot of hot air about absolutely nothing. Too early to tell but here's a Houston area high school coach who seems to agree:

    And when they disappear from Texas TV sets to the BTN and ABC midwest regional feed it will have absolutely no effect!

    While discussing the Huskers, Svoboda mentioned that he coached another player last year whose name might resound within Nebraska: JaMichael Rozier, the son of Husker Heisman Trophy winner Mike Rozier.
    The younger Rozier rushed for some 1,700 yards at Klein Collins last year but picked a scholarship from Prairie View A&M over NU’s walk-on offer.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    I think it will cut their Texas recruits by half, but it won't matter because they got paid...

    As of today, 8/5/2010, there are 26 Texas kids on the NU FB roster. Let's come back in subsequent years and see what happens to that number.

    Yes, because every Texas high school football player gets up in the morning and turns on the BTN, to see who Nebraska is playing.

    Re: The $6 Million Question: Will Move To Big 10 Hurt Nebraska's Efforts In Texas?

    I'm not convinced either way right now. The proof will come about 4-5 years down the road when Nebraska hasn't played the Texas teams for a few years.

    This. Wing nuts must not realize that kids from Texas play in the Big 12 because they get to play in their homestate alot. Aside from OSU, the Big 10 has not played in Texas outside of bowl games in recent memory.

    ?, I think you missed the

    Anyway, the coach they quote in the article is a former NU walk-on so of course he is going to be slanted. Iowa now has only 2 players from the state of Texas with a majority coming from Iowa, Illinois, and other Midwest enclaves they have built up.

    I think this is how the Nebraska roster will morph over the next 4 to 5 years, with a little more national approach. Nebraska is going to have to build midwest relationships in new territories, and quickly.
