    Look...with all due respect.....
    Just because The University of Nebraska doesn't belong to the AAU doesn't mean folks are a bunch of knuckle dragging cretins.

    They belonged to the AAU for over 100 years. It is a land grant university that does more Ag research - versus trying to find the next great breakthrough in neuroscience (like everyone else).

    So...while people may find a way to get to Mars...enjoy finding out how to eat and wishing you had a good botanist to help you grow poop potatoes.

    And, I am sorry, but...

    Funny thing is - my HS mascot was (no lie) the Benson Bunnies.

    I was gonna ask for a nice oil rubdown, whilst paying close attention to the man parts :biggrin:

    Because it's the offseason... Illini beat writer makes awful list of schools he wants in B1G
    http://www.news-gazette.com/sports/illini-sports/football/2019-02-10/first-and-10-asmussens-wish-list-schools-join-the-big-ten

    1. Religious, not a culture fit.
    2. Poison.
    3. Academics.
    4. Seems to be a favorite and makes sense but cant get over the decade+ of cheating.
    5. Theyre already in the SEC and an underwhelming addition.
    6. Fuck you Bob.
    7. See 5.
    8. Why would they leave PAC? Makes no sense for either party. More of 5 and 7.
    9. Geographically isolated midmajor that's not really a culture fit ... but would be a nice city to have and steal most obvious addition from Little10.
    10. Your friend is touched, Bob. And all of Chicago identifies more with Wheaton than UI. You fucking twat.

    Boulder would become the best Big Ten away trip by infinity to the infinite power.

    Would be fun to fly in on Thursday, go climbing in Eldo and hit Pearl Street on Friday, and the game on Saturday.

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    It'll never happen though. They wanted the PAC forever. It's where their alumni are and where a big portion of their students come from. They're where they belong.

    Agreed. Culturally they are more west coast than Midwest, too. But I can dream, can't I?

    Also, CU girls >> any school in the big ten.

    I got Maryland right...I still want UVA and UNC despite UNC's warts.

    Can we boot the Pedsters and make a play for Georgia Tech too?

    Meh, I like having PSU around so we can continue to beat them. I guess if they went to the ACC then they’d be Clemson’s bitch. Which would be fine too.

    You already have one engineering school team wearing Gold and Black draining resources from the big boys.
    Why add another?

    They really aren't a fit for the B1G....booting them would be hilarious and would remove the Jerr-Bear stain they bring on the conference.

    Why not? Again, removing the stain of the Pedsters from the B1G might be worth it.
     
  15. Zurp

    Zurp I have misplaced my pants.

    But... who'd be our rival, then?

    Seriously, on the one hand, it would be fun to watch them bitch and moan about the biased ACC referees. Any call that doesn't go their way must be biased. On the other hand, can we really trust Clemson?
    If Penn State was in the ACC and rolled through to a playoff spot, would that be a "The Big Ten was too tough for Penn State every year"? Or "Big Ten wouldn't let Penn State win"?
    And would you rather have a Big Ten team beat Penn State in the playoffs, or have a Big Ten officiating crew screw Penn State in a game against an SEC or Big 12 opponent?
