Todays hot Big 10 candidate: Nebraska

Written by Juan Cena on Monday, February 15 2010 and posted in SWRT

Now that the Texas to the Big 10 talk is pretty much toast, something had to replace it. So what pops up other than talk about Nebraska making the leap. Talk from Tom Osbourne that he would be willing to listen to a Big 10 pitch certainly help those stories.
Honestly, The Huskers make more sense geographically as a Big 10 team than Texas does. And despite recent setbacks on the gridiron, Nebraska is still somewhat of a big enough name to make people notice. The drawback might be the lack of academics that the Big 10 might be looking at. But the schools that can provide all three needs are few and far between. Notre Dame would be it on all three accounts, but the Irish are still too chained to their precious tradition of independence to join the Big 10.
Nebraska might a better candidate realistically than other schools. It wouldn't make too big of a splash as Texas or Notre Dame would, however. Not that there are that many truly exciting candidate schools out there in the first place. For the Big 10, it's really looking like a case of lowered expectations.
