Nebraska Hopes Begin Play In Big Ten In 2011

While it's still technically not official -- the Big Ten still has to accept Nebraska; in theory, they could deny the application -- for all intents and purposes, the Huskers are off to play in the Big Ten. And if it were up to them, they'll make the move as soon as possible. As in, next season. They want out of the Big 12, and they want out now, according to Harvey Perlman, Chancellor of Nebraska. 

"If the Big Ten accepts, it would be our hope to begin competitive integration in 2011 and play one more season in the Big 12."

And as those leaving for what they deem are greener pastures are apt to do, Perlman made sure to leave the Big 12 with some parting thoughts.

"This will bring Nebraska the stability that the Big 12 cannot offer."

"Any penalty imposed on the university of nebraska (to leave Big 12) would be inappropriate."
