I watched the press conference held at the University of Nebrasaka. I think it's important to get to know our new brethen:
NU (as they are called) is a fellow Land Grant University and obviously a member of the AAU. It is also a high research university. Nebraska has 140 undergraduate programs serving 22,000 undergraduate students.
And some things that caught my attention:
**More expansion is possible. Big12Ten Commish Jim Delany stated they are still following the 12-18 month timeline on expasion. Just like before though, he wasn't being specific on who.
**The B12Ten Network will begin airing Nebraska athletics July 1. They will begin playing in our conference July 2011. Awesome!!!
**There is no idea as to if they are going to change the name of the conference.
And this is their mascot. Oh the fun!
