Point: Just Say No to Big 10
In a sports world where sentimentality and tradition are overcome by the quest for a better television deal or corporate sponsorship, the Big 10 has started what could be the biggest bargaining chip in the country. For those not in the know, the Big 10 conference (which has 11 teams) has expressed interest in expanding their membership by up to 5 teams over the course of the next two years. But most immediately, they want one more team now. Obviously, there are a number of schools being thrown into the mix, but Nebraska is a name that fans and pundits are throwing around as a potential westward addition. I'm not blind to logic, as there are a number of good reasons for a potential move like this, but for the most part, I think that the Big 12 is the best place for Nebraska.
