    What does Chip Brown have to tweet about this?

    He must have seen an e-mail from Bill Powers to his voting peers on the AAU committee.

    I imagine the UT president and former member of Enron's Board of Directors said something like, "...the only way to deal with Nebraska is to nuke them from outer-space, just to be sure. Their only contribution as a research institution is to discover the recipe to the McRibb sandwich. The insubordinant and treacherous Cornhuskers have no place in the AAU amongst America's great universities. They gave up that privlege the moment they spurned the rich tradition and partnership of their former conference members..."

    When you mess with Texas, you are going to get the horns.

    "Perlman said most of the 11 other Big Ten universities supported UNL's efforts to remain in the AAU, as did all of the Big 12 universities in the AAU." So yeah, CU voted to keep them in, but not all of their new brethren did.

    "He said the AAU's four criteria were unfair disadvantages for UNL because the NU system is organized with separate flagship (UNL) and medical campuses (the University of Nebraska Medical Center). Most AAU institutions have medical schools, which tend to get large amounts of research dollars, Perlman said." CU qualifies without including our separate medical campus...

    Nebraska needed 22 votes to retain membership.
    6 B12
    11 B10
    5 others

    Those votes might have come from Tulane, Case Western Reserve, Georgia Institute of Technology, U Cal Davis, U Cal Santa Barbara, SUNY Stony Brook & SUNY Buffalo, or the two Canadian institutions. But they didn't. There were at least 42 that wanted them to GTFO.

    Oops.

    Wow. I thought they'd been kicked out of the Amateur Athletic Union.
