        I don't know why people want Nebraska back. I'm fine with them staying gone forever.

          I agree they hung on to our coattails long enough. They are nothing without us.

            That would create an interesting situation, we would have the Big11 and Big13 conferences. Or, BIXI and BIGX<3.

            Someone needs to start a Realignment Thread, that would be cool.

                  They can rot where they are. I’m cool with playing them occasionally but they made their bed. They can lie in it.

                    Of course I have a selfish motive insofar as I am moving to Omaha in 2 weeks.

                    Nevertheless, I am a traditionalist and miss that rivalry.

                      And they'll get more attention than they've gotten since leaving the Big XII. You're welcome Nebraska.

                        They need to go retro and grab their old name again. The nebraska bugeaters!! Perfect for them, and tommie osborne.

                            Yes, but their summers are way less lot than in OK. Heck, winters here in Utah can be pretty brutal.

                              Heh, you think Utah has rough winters, hell we had 2" of snow on the ground here in West Tulsa last week.

                                I think the sport is better when the good teams are decentralized and low population, forgotten regions have teams worth rooting for, so from that standpoint I wish Nebraska was better.

                                Overall, I don't care about Nebraska, I'm fine kicking their butt twice every 15 years for the tradition, but I appreciate them being our canary in a conference realignment coal mine

                                  I kind of liked the idea of Nebraska returning, but this year has shown that they're not just whiny fucks, but world-class whiny fucks--from upper administration on down. They bitch and moan so much that I'm come to take UT's side in their little verbal rivalry.

                                    just looking at omaha schools ...

                                    do the huskers play Doane University? That might be a great matchup.

                                    if not, the women's College of St Mary might be able to pull together 11 girls to give the huskers a game.

                                    blackshirts vs pink tops for all the corn!

                                      One of the "cutest" things about playing Nebraska all those years is that we used to make fun of them up there. A bunch of starry eyed bumpkin corn farmers was our perception of them. "Welcome to Nebraska, please turn your clocks back 20 years"...stuff like that.

                                      Meanwhile when we would go up there, you could tell that although they were nice and friendly....they thought WE were the bumpkin "hillbillies" that Callahan actually said out loud.

                                      I am certainly biased, but I always felt like we were the more sophisticated simply because we didn't worship the coaches and players the way they did. It was bizarre.

                                      I'm sure it's different now that they suck. But it will be interesting for you to live among them and see what your observations were.

                                        I member the dark days when the best OU could do was 5 wins a season. Nebbish is that plus a COVID season. Dark days indeed.

                                            No steroids + no partial qualifiers = no chance to be competitive again.

                                                Sorry, but no. They chose to follow their legendary Coach turned AD out the door & into mediocrity. If/When we expand, let’s add value to the conference.

                                                    Exactly. I don't see Nebraska adding that much at this point. Also why help them out by letting them recruit Texas again.

                                                      You really think they stopped recruiting Texas because they went to the B1G?

                                                        No, but they had WAY less success. They’re not Ohio State.

                                                          I looked at their roster and the majority of players on there are from the state of Nebraska, I think that might explain some of their lack of success on the field. And they have 7 guys from Texas and 5 or 6 from Oklahoma.

                                                            It's a lot harder to get a kid to go to Nebraska when you can't tell them that they will get to play games close to their family.

                                                              I get that but half the games are still in Lincoln no matter what conference they're in.

                                                                        I guess those players don't want to play for last place in the conference every year.

                                                                                Yeah, but I remember when teams were ringing up points on us, and we were winning 4 games a year. Therefore, I have some humility and thus some compassion for the Husker nation.

                                                                                They badly needed some humility themselves. But I think they have suffered enough. It's time to bring them back home. The Big XII needs some new members, and I can't see any two teams better than Nebraska to bring back.

Big12 is consider a fucking joke because OU owns it. Some see that as awesome, no compeition and we can win the Big12 each and every year. Some, like myself, want a brand that is considered tough year in and year out. We own Basketball, I guess that is good for most.
