Academically used barely squeezed into the conference. I actually think they made a few exceptions. We obviously didn’t want you for your football team so I’d start concentrating on academics or you may not have a choice and be booted. I highly doubt Texas and the big 12 will let you back in but maybe the Mac or mountain west would be an option? Plus those two conferences you’d have a great opportunity to win consistently which is what matters to most fans on this board.

They'll say they want to come back, but will demand that Texas leave.

Against UT in the Big 12, they were 1-9. They'd rather continue to suffer in the Big 10 than face the Longhorns ever again.

Hawkofxmaspast with the roast of the day.

Have some friends who pay no attention to cfb jump on the Scott Frost train, and it is amazing to see them lose game after game.

Nebraska couldn't demand Iowa State leave at this point, let alone Texas

What did Texas do in 2009 that is unforgivable?

Yeah, they got pissed off because the referees got the call on the field correct.

that single call, in a single game, changed college sports and public college conference affiliations forever. someone should do a 30 for 30. it really was the straw that broke things.

Texas also voted against revenue sharing, which really pissed off Nebraska even though Nebraska also voted against revenue sharing.

so they went to the big 10 to have revenue sharing.  i'm sure the Huskguy Network would have been worth thousands.

Who would have thought that cutting ties to 100 year old rivals, losing your recruiting footprint in the midwest, and firing a coach that had won a minimum of 9 games a year every year, would have detrimental effects on your program!?!?!?

Nubs has put themselves in football purgatory for the foreseeable future. The only solution is to admit you made a mistake, and come back home.

No thanks. That brand has took a complete nosedive. I'm not sure we would get the $30+ million from tv revenue we'd need to break even. We'd also lose round robins, they're not worth that.

they seriously left because texas consistently beat them and because of that one play. any and everything else is just made up crap and none of this would have happened if they wouldn't have put time back on that clock.

Yeah, I think that was as big or bigger than the money.

This 2016 article with quotes from The Wefer lays it out pretty well. https://www.omaha.com/sports/college/huskers/blogs/new-book-reveals-another-chapter-in-nebraska-texas-big-power/article_cd95808c-22b2-11e6-ba44-db372b5df934.htm

Hell, just google partial qualifiers and basically every result is about Nubb football.
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

They are such pompous asses. They deserve everything they are getting.

and they still severely out recruit us including one of the best prospects in years in kansas at a position of absolute necessity.
turner corcoran offensive tackle
so apparently they can lose to the worst teams in the country; use an offensive system that prioritizes skill position players over OLs; have so much depth that OL recruits will be 3rd in line waiting for a chance to play and still get kids ahead of KSU
recruits love their coaches

To be fair to us, LHC Bill Snyder didn't really put much effort into recruiting and there was and still is a lot of uncertainty as to what kind of a program Klieman will run. I expect recruiting to improve if we keep winning.

Certainly doesn't seem like the type of youngster to put in the work or sacrifice for the team.
