Nebraska is Officially a B1G member

on Fri Jul 01, 2011 10:26 am
It's incredible how much support the Big 10 +2 Conference members and fans have shown towards the Huskers. Doing a quick (and not terribly thorough) social media scan, the only team that hasn't said anything about today would be the Iowa Hawkeyes.

That makes me sound biased/snobbish, I know, who am I to expect unconditional adoration on today. Maybe the border war is just starting early and the Eye-uhhh-wha? fans are jealous with all the attention heaped on us. Very Happy There's more Hawkeye news on Women's Basketball coming from them, then there is on the Big 10. Jealous much?

So now that Nebraska is in the Big 10 or 12 or B1G, what happens to your old rivalries? Are there any plans to still play Texas and/or Colorado yearly? Will the Nebraska/Colorado game still be scheduled to end the regular season? Any plans to create a new rivalry with border mates Iowa (maybe make that the last game of the year)?

With the extreme hate towards Texas, I doubt the two will willingly play any time soon.

Our rivalries with Missouri and Oklahoma were great. I respect the heck out of those school and wish them the most success. It won't happen any time soon, but there's a slight chance Nebraska and Oklahoma will entertain talks about setting up a non-conference game once all guaranteed scheduling agreements run out in 2016.

And hey, if Colorado instantly gets good, they could meet us in the Rose Bowl. haha.

Iowa is a natural rival, and it should be heated very soon. Reading the SB Nation blogs CornNation (Nebraska) and Black Heart Gold Pants (Iowa), fans are already starting to take jabs at each other. We are guaranteed to play the next two years on Black Friday replacing our game with Colorado. I really hope it gets set in stone though, it'd be a great game to look forward too. Technically Nebraska and Minnesota were strong rivals in the 60s/70s, but it will be a while before that develops again.

Awesome. That's something I want to do ... go to a big time college football game. The biggest game I've gone to was Syracuse vs Miami in the Carrier Dome back in the day (pre-McNabb).

That would be an excellent game to see. I REALLY wanted to go to Camp Randle to open B1G play. But damn those tickets are getting more expensive every day. You can't count yourself out yet though. We have no clue how good Nebraska's offense can be. While we fired our incompetent coordinator this spring, We have a lot of question marks on offense. If we sputter early, then it could be a tough season. OSU has too much talent not to be able to cover 4 suspended players. Your only true question mark is QB.

Obviously my biased opinion would recommend going to Columbus for a game, however easier trip would be Happy Valley, its pretty close to us and is def an experience. I've been there once, Ohio State Penn State game in 09, I was impressed with how loud the stadium got at times, and the pre-game tailgating was awesome....

I watched a choppy youtube video of a Penn State game when they started playing Zombie Nation's only known song after a sack. The whole stadium was jumping in unison and it gave me goosebumps. I can't even imagine experiencing that in person.

When in Lincoln Buckeye, you need to get some Runza. Yes it resembles a Hot Pocket in form, but it's anything but. I live 2 hours away from the nearest Runza fast food joint and I crave it regularly.

I can imagine. I went to Penn State football camp in high school and they brought us onto the field. It was incredible and it was empty ... I can only imagine how crazy, loud, excited, etc it must be when that stadium is packed for a big game.

I am a Big 10 guy and even though I love that Nebraska joined the conference, I am kind of upset that it looks like they will just run through it this first year. With Ohio State's troubles and Michigan's terrible defense, I'm not sure anybody will be able to challenge them.

Haha, except for our ludicrous schedule. Ohio State still has tremendous talent on the roster. Wisconsin and Michigan State should be solid this year still too. Nebraska won't roll through the conference unless Tim Beck can do to the offense what he did to Kansas.

Yea Nebraska's schedule does them no favors this year, they will most likely end up with 2 losses... I still see them winning their side of the conf (with a strong push from Sparty), and winner of wisconsin/ohio state coming out of the other...
