Report: Nebraska board agrees on Big Ten move

The Nebraska Board of Regents informally agreed Wednesday to leave the Big 12 for the Big Ten, is reporting. According to the site, an official announcement will come Friday, at which point Texas and five other Big 12 schools -- most likely Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Colorado -- could begin the process of moving to the Pac-10.

That kind of exodus would bring an end to the Big 12.

It's unclear where those left behind -- most notably Kansas -- would land if the Big 12 ceased to exist.

The Mountain West Conference is one possibility.

Report: Nebraska board agrees on Big Ten move

ou can slam Oklahoma all you want but all I can hear is a bunch of empty swagger from a guy who is expecting Les Miles to win a championship.  Don't you get it?  He left OSU because he couldn't win the big one there, much less in Baton Rouge.

I hate Les Miles as much as the next guy, but he DID win a National Championship. 2007.

I hear you but you have to admit that was by and large Sabin's recruits.  It was only Miles 2nd year and was heavy laden with seniors anchored by Matt Flynn and Glenn Dorsey.  LSU hasn't been the threat since they beat Ohio State for the championship and finished 12-2.  My point was to amplify the questions that are growing in Louisiana about getting LSU to the top and whether Miles is the man to do it. 

I was being sarcastic because all the swagger I hear in the SEC is more superficial than substantive.  There are a lot of great programs in the SEC to respect but its hard to do when attitude is shoved down your throat.  Les Miles mouthed off a lot in the Big 12 and no one really yelled at him to not "let the screen door hit ya where the good Lord split ya" when he left.

I will try and make an argument for Baylor as part of the SEC. First, they would a stepping stone into the Texas market. Second, I see them as the Vanderbilt of the West, not great in sports but can be competitive most of the time, and both have very well healed alumni. This would satisfy the Texas House, not ruffle the big boys of the SEC's feathers would Vanderbilt an acedemically matching school, plus give LSU and Arkansas another game in Texas

I am not a Les Miles fan, but doesn't he have the same amount of national championships as your beloved Stoops which is one?

I heard a possibility of Kansas and K-State/ Texas Tech going to the Big East.... It would make sense with the basketball being the primary sport of the Conference.  Kansas is horrible at football...but we all know about basketball... Wonder how Self would feel about joining the Big East..

Wow.  What an observation.  You should get a trophy or something.  By the way, in terms of college, football=money.

Don't jump the gun yet. The regents haven't said anything yet. Until the final desicion is made, don't jump to conclussions. A part of me wants to stay with the Big 12.

I am tired of all the whiners, but then again, I am a B10 fan. But seriously, why should the losers really care? I'm talking about you Iowa St, Kansas, KSU, and Baylor. Does football really matter to you? DO you think your scholl will ever win an NC? It's not like your programs will disappear. They will have their shot in a like;ly less competitive conference. Or, maybe they should stick to BB: Kansas. I love how all the afterthought schools fans are whining... You too Big Least fans. Seems I saw one Pitt fan whining because they are likely to be left out. They should be happy they are in a less competitive conference and have more of a shot of making a Cinderella run.

STOP Whining!!!

So if Notre Dame isn't the player I was led to belive them to be and NU takes off for Big 10 land and the Big 12 dissolves..will this eventually hurt KU's recruiting down the road NOT being in a major conference? 

Will Bill Self leave KU after 3 or 4 more years for a more lucrative position at a major college school.  Because after the dust has settled in 5 years, if all this goes down, KU will be a Marshall, BYU type school. 

This just means the beginning of an eventual, storied end in KU's basketball history.  Their football is definitely out and their new coach will probably be gone in a few years, too. 

The irony in all this....Boise State will rise to more prominance in football than KU after another decade. 

Houston Nutt, thank you for putting Boise State on the map.  He went undefeated his one and only year at BSU, followed by Dirk Koetter (now NFL assistant), followed by Dan Hawkins (Colorado) and current jobber, Peterson. 

No, I don't live anywhere near Idaho....for now.  Just know of their football history back to the mid-90's. there some TAPS anyone wants to play for KU?  And they did nothing wrong for this "death penalty" injunction slowly coming down on themselves.
