    Conf Big12 Nebraska Back to the Big 12?

    There are always tons of rumors surrounding conference realignment (you already know this), but this would be a big deal. I agree that the Nebraska 'brand' isn't doing well in the B1G. Could make sense for them to return. If they do, then what does the Big 10 do? Nothing? Invite Notre Dame?

    I actually hope you're right. If they took Nebraska (Big 10) and BYU (Independent), that really hurts our chances of possibly jumping to the AAC.

    We'll see......

    Bigxii has lowest distribution and its up equitable

    BIG has highest and its equitable

    Bigxii has stated it will NOT extend its Grant of Rights

    Correct. Besides the money and stability the Big 10 provides to Nebraska athletics, the Big 10's academic consortium does just as much for Nebraska's future as a research institution. Just like the talk back in 2010 about the Big 12 luring Arkansas, it's fantasyland stuff.

    Nebraska misses those recruits they used to get out of Texas when they played Texas teams.

    You are correct. But Nebraska also lost rivalries with former Big 8 schools and nearby neighbors OU, OSU, KSU, ISU Colorado, Missouri and KU. The Cornhuskers lost a lot of "border wars" when they moved to the Big Ten.

    Barry Switzer campaigning to keep Houston out of the Big 12. Fears UH will become a dominant force in the conference. Actually, that shouldn't be too hard. The Big 12 is weak.

    Now, allowing Nebraska back in...and yes, I understand all the $$$ talk....would help restore some of the lost luster of the league. Actually, if both NU and CU returned it would greatly enhance the Big 12. But, there was a reason those schools left in the first place and those reasons are still prominent.

    Nebraska left the Big !2 for one reason -- THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS. They're not going back unless Texas either leaves or allows the Texas Network to become the Big 12 Network (which ain't happening).

    The loss of recruits is huge. How many players on the Nebraska roster were ever from Nebraska? They probably can't out recruit ND State now in the Dakotas.

    Texas is waiting on ESPN to propose a buyout. Since ESPN is losing heavily on the LHN, that proposal will come at some point.

    Re: Nebraska Back to the Big 12?

    Talk of NU, CU, or the Arizona schools joining the Big 12 are all fantasyland.

    And I do wonder if most of it is being spread from segments within the leadership structure at either Oklahoma, Texas, or both who want to see their schools in other conferences. At a minimum, the talk will prevent enough Big 12 schools from voting for expansion. And that will bring the Big 12 one step closer to its demise. Again, five schools leave and the Grant of Rights is no more.

    Nebraska will be getting a full share of Big 10 revenue in 2017. At that point they will be making about what Texas is making (with the $15 mil bonus from the LHN). It's a business, and there is no way they would turn down the money they are about to be making.
