But without Nebraska in the B1G we could never have had the Bits of Broken Chair trophy.
I could swear you said you were done posting here after the GSU game. We get enough troll tripe here from certain others.If you think Nebraska will be down for 3 more years you would be wrong.
Right now Nebraska brings in more money in TV, for the B10, and filling their stadium for their program, than you could wish for.
You realize Lincoln is larger than probably half of the other B1G schools? Don't disagree that overall academically it brings up the rear but it also has more Academic All-Americans than any other school.Nebraska is at the bottom of the Big Ten in academics, way at the bottom. Culture wise? What do we have in common with Nebraska? The U is an urban school and Lincoln is in the middle of nowhere.
I can see it more so in Big 8 country. K-State, KU, Iowa St, Missouri, I believe have all played Nebraska 100 times or something like that. Oklahoma had a great rivalry with them, but OU has zoomed way past them now.Have a buddy from Missouri, still follows Nebraska closely and roots against them. The hate still runs runs deep for Nebby in the Big XII.
MINI G - "They were supposed to deliver an Ohio St level football program."
What did you major in?
You should be happy. Now the Gophers can step up, take Nebraska's place and show the B10 that you are worthy of staying in the B10.
Are you speaking about football? They fill their football stadium, about 75,000, even when they play their spring game. You should be happy that the "N" raises the big 10s attendance levels
I doubt you could qualify to attend Nebraska in any real program. You're a short term thinker vs a long term realist.
Nebraska has a great and devoted fan base. I’ve been to several games there (sister in law is a season ticket holder) and if there is one thing that Nebraskans love its their Cornhuskers. But for as passionate as they are, they always treated me and other opposing team’s fans well. Our program/fans should take some notes from them and their overall success. They are “down” right now but I don’t agree that they weren’t a good add to the conference.
Does it really matter?People talk about Nebraska being a "horrible" research school and that is absolute garbage. They are still a very highly regarded research university. The reason the AAU kicked them out is because the hospital is a separate campus and they do not count USDA sponsored agricultural research. They were and are a good fit, even if they didn't bring 100 million TV's like Rutgers and Maryland. I'd argue culture-wise a much better fit than Rutgers or Maryland.
Again, doesn't matter what you do in other sports. Football and men's basketball are what matters.Gophers are a charter a member of the B1G, we're not getting kicked out. MN is very successful in B1G athletics overall, it's just the important ones we struggle with. Academically MN is superior to Nebraska. MN is upper half, on par with Wi just behind NW and Michigan
Agree, by far the best traveling fans I have met at The Bank.Nebraska has a great and devoted fan base. I’ve been to several games there (sister in law is a season ticket holder) and if there is one thing that Nebraskans love its their Cornhuskers. But for as passionate as they are, they always treated me and other opposing team’s fans well. Our program/fans should take some notes from them and their overall success.
