Nebraska seems to be a bigger wild card. Remember their messy divorce from the Big XII?
There's a line in the Yahoo article on Nebraska saying their request was met with "knowing eye rolls." Same thing applies when you and any other Stony Brook fan brings this up to act like the Seawolves are on their way to the Power 5 and could slot in for Nebraska (Nebraska. NEBRASKA FOOTBALL!) any day now.Nebraska got kicked out of the Association of American Universities as well.
In 2010, Perlman stated that had Nebraska not been part of the AAU, the Big Ten Conference would likely not have invited it to become the athletic conference's 12th member.
Meanwhile, there's only America East school in the AAU...
They are just bound and determined to screw up a good thing. I have said at least twice on here that Nebraska is extremely fortunate to be in the Big Ten.Nebraska seems to be a bigger wild card. Remember their messy divorce from the Big XII?
Oh I completely agree with this 100% but college presidents and athletic directors are among the greediest and generally very vapid and stupid people on the planet so if there was some kind of split and a league is desperate for members, I can easily see some being okay with sportwashing all of Liberty's terriblness if it helped them. Like...is the Sun Belt in a position to reject them if they get poached in that scenario of a CUSA split I mention? I would commend schools/conferences for taking a moral stand against them, but I think their morality is so flexible to begin with so perhaps I'm cynical that Liberty will be independent forever/push their way into a situation they don't deserve. UMass gets a lot of justified shit for playing them every year from its students and faculty on campus, but their administration doesn't care, at a certain point are Arkansas State or Middle Tennessee's?
