  1. Hey there, BigTenBadger. Sometimes I do miss the Big 12, I'll admit that. I watched several YouTube videos containing clips of various Nebraska/Oklahoma games. And it sort of made me miss our rivalry with them. Ever since Nebraska defeated Northwestern on that Hail Mary in 2013, I asked how exciting it would be if we had still been in the Big 12 at the time and had done that to Oklahoma? I know lots of Husker fans would be REALLY excited and would party well into the morning. It would certainly have been a very memorable moment in college football. But I guess one can't escape the
  2. I'd be okay with a conference like this: Nebraska Colorado Iowa Iowa State Minnesota Kansas K State Missouri Oklahoma Oklahoma State Texas Texas A&M There'd be 3 non-conference games and 9 conference ones. And no divisions. Oklahoma and Nebraska would play each other every year on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Instead of deciding the conference champion with just a single game, they do it with a post-season conference tournament just like in basketball in baseball. It would consist of the 8 winningest teams of the season. All conferences would decide their ch
  3. Most Nebraska football games air on ABC/ESPN. It's been that way for the last 45+ years. That's why I said that. And in this fantasy of mine, it wouldn't be Ed Cunningham commentating on the game. It'd be Sean McDonough and Chris Spielman.
  4. I don't want anything. I was just giving a hypothetical "what-if" scenario. Everybody's had their own sports fantasy moments, haven't they? As for that Orange Bowl rematch on New Year's Day 1979, that was kind of unusual at the time. Usually, they don't pair up conference rivals in bowl games.
  5. Yes, that they do. And they used to have one of the greatest rivalries, if not THE greatest, in college football. That's what drove me to ask my original question. That and the last-second Hail Mary win against Northwestern in 2013–How exciting would it be to watch Nebraska defeat Oklahoma on a last-second Hail Mary?
  6. By that logic, maybe Iowa State should join the Big 10?
  7. I guess it just goes to show sports and politics don't mix.
  8. There have been rumors that Oklahoma may join the Big 10. But they're just rumors, nothing more.
  9. Yeah, sure. If it were up to me, the Big 12 wouldn't be all about Texas, doing whatever it takes to keep them happy, etc. And they wouldn't be hated by everyone else. There would be no Longhorn Network. It would be called the Big 12 Network and rightfully so. The conference's headquarters would still be in Kansas City instead of moving to Dallas. They would acknowledge their history with the Big 8.
  10. Of course he does. As he walks around the field, he's still in jaw-dropping shock.
  11. Hi, everyone. This is my first post here. I like to watch the Huskers like lots of people in Nebraska do. And I've been wondering something. Ever since Nebraska defeated Northwestern on that last-second Hail Mary in 2013, I've often wondered what if Nebraska was still in the Big 12 (along with Colorado, Missouri and Texas A&M) and did that to Oklahoma–Beat them on a last second Hail Mary? How exciting would that be? I could see the scenario: It's 2013, the Saturday before Thanksgiving (November 23rd) and Nebraska (still in the Big 12 along with Colorado, Missouri and Texas A&a
