So, OU President David Boren thinks the Big 12 should look to growing up to, well, 12. The article at the worldwide leader indicates one of the options for growth might be taking Nebraska back, in addition to the usual speculation of Cincy, BYU, and others.
I think our obvious vote on this board would be to give them Maryland and Rutgers. Or do we hand over all 4 of our recent additions?
Interesting article I read in todays Omaha World Herald from a Nebraska perspective of what worked so well for us last year.
“It’s like facing a knuckleball pitcher,” Beck said of Michigan, which held NU to 260 yards and three third-down conversions in the Huskers’ 45-17 loss last season. “It’s weird because you haven’t seen it.”
Who should Nebraska play in their inaugural Big Ten game? Iowa makes the most sense to build the rivalry. Obviously our Wolverines could build off a few bowl games against them. (Tyler Ecker and I would prefer to build off the 1987 Fiesta Bowl) I think it should be Penn State - the former new addition welcomes the current new addition.
Anyway a big welcome to the Huskers. Though they will always be the bugeaters to me.
