a team like northwestern is like k-state

I mean academically, sure, but they aren't near the sports juggernaut that we are.

Purple wildcats.  True Story, I was wearing a purple wildcats hat in Milwaukee and some dude thought I was wearing it for Northwestern!  I LOL'd.  Some people, man.

That thread makes me really wish that the Cats and Nebraska would both win out, only to see us get into the playoff with them not making it.

Well obviously.

IMO when it comes to the total package, offense, defense and special teams, the SEC and the BIG lead the power conferences.

The big 10 is more classy has more history and better all the way around.   You must be a young buck.   Give it time the Big 10 will be back.   The big 12 isn't that good either.   I get sick of people that says it is.

The Big 12 is the 2nd best conference.

Quote
Nebraska is a better fit geographically for the big 10.

What? NU is in the same conference as teams from OH, PA, NJ, and MD. The closest school is a few hours away.

Quote
Currently there are 11 teams averaging more than 40 points a game. Baylor sits at #1 with just over 50. There are three big 12 and three big ten teams in that 11. Not sure what you are referring to when you say "wide open" but I would think you mean high scoring so not much difference there.

There are 18 teams allowing 20 and under in Scoring defense. Of those teams there is one Big 12 team and five Big ten teams.

Sorry, I'd rather be part of a conference that has teams that score AND teams that can play D. That 62-58 circus between Baylor and TCU was a joke....don't want to be part of that kind of game ever.

 :lol:

Being in a conference with Texas is miserable..there is no fan base that even compares to those T-sipping a-holes.  It brings me great pleasure that they have hit rock bottom.

Oh, the irony.

Why, yes Emo it is.  The French missionaries and explorers were coming here as early as the late 1600s to trade with the Native Americans.  Its had its fair share of visitors.

They still think KSU will end up in the MW when/if conference Armageddon happens?  :confused:

I've heard the KSU/northwestern comparo a lot. It still makes no sense to me. NW had one decent year. We're staring at a possible 10+ win season for the third out of that last 4 years...

Nebraska makes the Northwestern comparison because the only two things their brains can compare is colors and mascots.  Other than that NW doesn't make much sense.

They have the worst fan support and facilities in the conference too.  Not very go purple ksu cats fight on state-like.

For another generation (at least) Nebraska fans will not acknowledge K-State. There are still too many fans that remember K-State as it once was, not as it has been for the last 20 years.

It is telling that so many comments on here are from non-Huskers. For the most part, I think Husker fans like the big 10. I get coverage of every team here on the East Coast. I would bet more people care about a bad Michigan team vs a bad Penn State team than will care about K-State vs TCU. I certainly do.

On the old K-State fans site, in 2000, I predicted that Nebraska would fall into irrelevancy. My prediction was that K-State might actually win a conference championship and even a National Championship before Nebraska.   In 2010, when Osborne and Pearlman decided to go to the Big 10, little did they realize they completed the final stages of the prophecy.   In 2015, there will be graduating class at Nebraska that will have never experienced a championship, conference or national. We're only 6 wins left from winning the NC (note:  I'm only focused on TCU at the moment.)

I wouldn't worry too much about realignment. Word is the Big 10 takes schools that aren't even AAU members nowadays. Post about 8-9 wins a year and they'll be salivating.

Well 2 years ago we were 3 wins away, and in 98 we were two. Or really 1.25.

I'm guessing that this is the first time they have been 8-1 and not in the top 10. I mean, at least Texas is losing games and that's why they aren't ranked. Nub keeps winning and poll voters are like "Nope, they're not that good!"  :ROFL:

Miami and McNeese State are the only two schools they have beaten with winning records. Miami is 6-3 and McNeese would have beat them if they would have just let Daniel play the whole game.
