What now for the not so Big 12

Now that A&M is leaving the Big 12 where does that leave everybody else?  I think it leave Oklahoma going to the PAC-12 or they could be sandbagging for the SEC.

What puzzles me is that people are picking Texas to go to the PAC-12??  I don’t think the PAC-12 will have them with the UT Network.  I don’t think anybody will have them with that.  I expect UT to go independant and the rest of the league scrambling to … Read More....

Colorado and Nebraska Split at the Right Time

The Big 12 made it sound like everything would be just fine after Nebraska and Colorado left for the Big Ten and Pac 12 respectively.

They should really change the name of the conference to Texas and the other 9.  The Big 12 is proving to be more and more dysfunctional.  Texas A&M says it regrets not leaving for the SEC while the getting was good and now the SEC says it is fine right where it is.

Personally I … Read More....

Getting down to it. Hello Big Ten

It is about that time.  This is going to be a very interesting year for the Huskers.  No more Kansas, Oklahoma, Colorado (unless both make the Rose bowl), it is all new teams (except the non-conference schedule where the Huskers play Washington for the 3rd time in a calendar year).

Games I most look forward to? First conference game right off the bat.  Wisconsin, Alvarez played linebacker at NU and was an assistant there.  NU and Wisconsin have a lot … Read More....

Big East Expansion and What is Left of the Big 12

The Big East has said it is interested in adding two new teams for football.  I can’t help but think that Kansas, Missouri and Kansas State have to be thinking about it.  If any one of those schools could get in for football and basketball they would be all set.

These schools have to face the facts much as Colorado did, none of the other Big 12 schools care about them.  Texas definitely isn’t going to do them any favors … Read More....

More on the Hit Courtney Osborne put on Blaine Gabbert

Gary Pinkle sent a video of the hit to the league office today.  Even Pinkle admitted in his press conference that Blaine ducked just before the hit.  I really don’t see a case of a suspension, not that Dan Beebe won’t do it.

Here is the major issue if the Big 12 does suspend Courtney.  They are saying that their officials blew the call on the field and that they also below it on instant replay.

The short version of … Read More....

Why Courtney Osborne Can Not Be Suspended by the Big 12

On the ABC telecast of the Husker’s game this weekend Ed (I make the rules) Cunningham said that Courtney Osborne’s hit on Blaine Gabbert was illegal and he should have been flagged.  He also mentioned Eric Martin being suspended for the same kind of thing.

Blaine fumbled the ball on the play and it was run back for a touchdown by Pierre Allen.  The ref’s blew it dead and said that Blaine’s forward progress was stopped and therefore there was … Read More....

Missouri’s Lack of Class Almost Hurt Someone

During warm ups for the Missouri-Nebraska game Missouri demanded that everybody be moved off the south end of the field.  Something that has never been asked for before or done for that matter.  When the Missouri staff were trying to move the Husker’s cheerleaders and other sports teams who use the sidelines on the south side of the field to host recruits, the Nebraska staff came over to figure out what was going on and try and settle the situation.… Read More....

Huskers Down Missouri One Final Time

The Huskers dominated an unbeaten Missouri team 31-17 one final time before the Huskers move to the Big Ten next season.

The big story of the day was Roy Helu’s monster rushing day.  He ran for a Husker single game record with 304 rushing yard and 3 touchdowns on 28 carries.  Helu had touch down runs of 66 and 73 in the first quarter and 53 in the third.  Roy passed Calvin Jones for the single game record.

Missouri had … Read More....

NU the Big 12 Scape Goat for Missouri

Seems there is a lot of hate in the Big 12 for Nebraska this year.  Everybody is upset because the Huskers are leaving for the Big Ten.  All the fans that are upset at the Huskers should really be upset with Missouri.  Why?  Well Missouri is the school that started all this.

It was Missouri; actually the Governor of Missouri that came out before the Big 12 meetings and said that the University of Missouri was leaving for the Big … Read More....
