    Looks like as of 2:25 P.M. today, it's a done deal pending "formal" approval by the B10 Conference governing body. The UNL Board of Regents voted unanimously at their meeting this afternoon.

    Conference play begins with the 2011 season. Looks like the last B12 game as we now know the Conference make up will be this season in Lincoln. Should be a great moment for both institutions involved.

    Good luck in the Pac 10!

    is there a different penalty (probably moot if conference dissolves) for leaving in 2011 versus 2012 ?

    Good luck in the Big 10, a good move for the school and a good get for the conference. Don't be a stranger when CU comes calling for future OOC games.

    It's going to be a great game that's for sure.

    Only thing I know (and it's only a rumor) is that I heard Nebraska gave TexASS to Colorado to take with them to the Pac 10. Must have been part of the deal to get into the B10. More info will come out on this in the coming weeks. :lol:

    Yes, I thought two years notice (CU) resulted in a 50% loss of TV revenue, while a one year notice (NU) resulted in a 90% loss of TV revenue, or something to that effect. May all be moot if six teams leave...

    Nebraska gave TexAss to Colorado? WTH? I can't imagine what you are saying, because if it's what I think it is, NU's opinion of itself has not changed one bit I see.

    I'm not surprised you guys decided to lose your last Big 12 game in front of your home crowd instead of in Boulder. :wink2:

    That game's going to make Lincoln the largest city in Nebraska for a day. I'm still going to watch it from Vegas (MBB LV Invitational week), but part of me is tempted to go to Lincoln instead and I had no desire to make that trip yesterday.

    There won't be a Big 12.

    This actually screws us a little bit. That season was a great home slate for CU season tickets (Oklahoma, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Cal & Fresno) plus we had the neutral with CSU at Mile High in the package. Hopefully we at least keep the non-conference schedule together. CSU (neutral), Fresno State (Boulder), Hawaii (Honolulu) plus 9 Pac games would still be pretty damn sweet.

    So wait a sec... If the Pac invites OU, UT, et. al. and they start in 2011, but we don't start until 2012? huh? Do they rearrange CU's begin date? I suppose that's as easy to do as anything else.

    At the event today, Larry Scott said that the Pac 11+ was prepared to start in 2011 if circumstances changed. Today's announcement by the Corn means that things have changed. Forget about the Big 12 in 2011 and CU's schedule for that season (other than CSU, Fresno State and Hawaii contracts).

    Maybe we'll get an in-conference concession from Cal since we're losing the return date in 2011. With this and their construction project issue, maybe we end up playing at a neutral site or something instead of going there for the next scheduled conference game. Be cool. How about we meet in San Diego?

    Wally: Thanks for the love. We are not all "goofy inbred, red-polyester-overall clad, sheep-****ing cadavers"

    Good luck in the Pac10, 12Pac, or what ever the hell is going to be called.

    Let the conference smack begin. CU's conference will be WAY better than mathmatically challenged conference that is the Big 10+1+1+?. Enjoy the rustbelt-flyover states montsanto conference. Say "hi" to Michael Moore when you visit Meatchicken.

    Yea, and which new conference member didn't meet graduation standards.........that would be Colorado. Can you bring me back some of that special recipe west coast pot after your first away game? Yes, one more thing. Don't tell me about conference academics either. You need to buy a dictionary or take "Spelling 101" before taking classes in 12Pac.

    Why is it that Nebraska fans think that keeping all athletes academically eligible means the same thing as having good academics? If anything, CU's APR struggles point to how rigorous the academic standards are at CU.

    Probably for the same reason they thought it a good idea to effect legislation to pay the collegiate athletes. They really do not see an issue from many angles - just the one that makes them feel better.

    Care to share how exactly it is not? Or is your reasoning limp?

    You must be suffering separation anxiety, nub. Gotta get those shots in quick, because after turkey day, we'll have NOTHING to talk about Nebraska related.

    Let's assume you are one of those Coloradoans for Nebraska assholes. So here are your choices: 1) Sink a bunch of time and money into trans-continental travel to get your live football fix. 2) Become a primarily TV based football fan, who lives and breaths off of the BTN network, or 3) start attending CU and CSU games for the pure joy of the gameday atmosphere.

    Enjoy those viewing parties, Nub. Because after Thanksgiving, we're done.

    Well, when all you have to do to graduate from *ebraska is show how to properly birth a calf, graduation rates are going to be pretty high.

    as an aside to the trash talk, i was glad to see warden tom call the texans on their bullcrap about how they really wanted to hold the b12 together while they were flirting with the p10, b10, and sec...

    i may hate fuskers on the field of play, but i really, really hate the texas cabal, pretty much across the board. i hope somehow, someway, some of these assholes end up somewhere, anywhere, other than with us...
