With the Big Ten and Pac-10 conferences allegedly closing in on pieces of the Big 12, some of the most prized program fillies of middle America are beginning to make eyes at any and all comers. To wit: That Nebraska rumor is finally gathering some speed, in the form of some very coy quotes from Husker AD Tom Osborne:
"It's much better to be proactive than reactive. I don't think I'm free to say much more than that. We are very aware. We don't plan to get left at the gate, although we could be. I just don't know what's going to happen in this environment."
So there you have it. Nobody's running to jump off a cliff, unless everybody else does it first. Maybe. Makes sense.
