Nebraska And Missouri: Nothing Yet On Expansion

Big Ten expansion candidates Missouri and Nebraska both in separate statements shoot down any discussion of possible offers of expansion. Nebraska’s Chancellor Harvey Perlman leaves little wiggle room in shooting down his side of today’s report:

Asked via e-mail whether the report has any validity as it applies to Nebraska, UNL chancellor Harvey Perlman replied, “None whatsoever.”

Missouri’s denial is a bit more lawyerly, but still firm:

“There’s nothing there at all,” said the source, who said he had spoken with MU athletic director Mike Alden on Monday. “Not yet. … nothing has changed.”

Like the rest of you, we’ll just be the cat over here chasing after the laser pointer Jim Delany’s waving around until we actually find out who the Big Ten wants to add to the conference. It’s so..shiny…
