New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - August 3, 2011, New Braunfels, Texas Former Nebraska star Ndamukong Suh will watch his Huskers make the switch to the Big Ten this season. File Photo Big Ten, Nebraska believe they’re a perfect match By Eric Olton AP Sports Writer UNCOLN, Neb. Ncbr.iska has ottic ially tiofl the knot with the Big T('ti anfl, uniikc its marriage of (onvenii’rK i‘ vvitfiCOLLEGE FOOTBALL f)arties (“ n t e r this one Ix'lieving they're a [H>rt('it mat( h. Ne!)raska, which hvi ame an activ(> Big Ten mt'nilxT on Friday, g(Hs tht» stability ot a lOS-vear-oid (ont('r(>n(e that includes some ot tfie l)iggest names in (ollege athletics and an asso( iation with some ot th(' most prestigious puF)lic institutii)ns m tht' land. I lie Big l('n gets a valu-ahl(' national brand in the ('ornhuskers, one that gives the (onterenc e leverage in tuture television riglits negotiations. Nebraska loses its gamts agcunst sch<K)ls with whic h it has had cc'ntun^ -oid rt*la tionships, such as Kansas and Missouri, and gains a border war with Iowa and high-powf^red mate hu[)s With Ohio State, f’enn State' and Wis( onsin, among othe'rs. ( ommissioner )im l)('lany said the Fluskers are a natural tit. Fhis was purely a fe)ot-balbdriven move. Five national championships and a coast‘to-coast tan tollowing made Ne'Ixaska extremelv attrae tive to De'lany and the many millions watching on ABC /ESPN and the Big Ten Netwe>rk. "I we)uld assume that it wc‘ didn't have a good tootball tradition that we )robabiy wouldn't have ')e(*n invitenl," Nebraska athletic director Tom ()sborne said. Hie FHuskers are in the I egends Division with lowti. Mil higan, Michigan State, Minnesota and Northweste'rn. They'll find out )ust how gex)d the>y are t:.' J in tiieir inaugural sc'ason, starting with nationally tc'l-e’vise'd cross-eiivision night games at Wisconsin on Oe t, I and against ()hio State in Lineoln the iollow-ing w e-ek. Tlie Fkiskers host Michigan State and Northwestern betöre back-to-l)ac k roaet games against Penn State and Michigan, and Iowa will visit l,in< oin the day after Ih.mksgiving. They miss out on pla\ ing two ot th(‘ three teams with losing records last se*ase)n. It the Husk(*rs can win 10 games tor the third sea-se>n in a row, it would be a marvc'lous accom()iish-ment, Osborne said, "It's one ot the tougher sche*dules we've had in a long time," he said. Game days at Nc'braska are like those at other Big Ten venues, with the- large crowcfs, tailgating and other traditions. Delany said Nel)raska tans will teel comtortable at places such as Penn State, Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State and VVisconsin. "I think the'y'll tee'l they came home in some ways," Delany said. Nebraska ne'ver te'lt at home in the Big 12 Oslx)rne has said as much. The perception in Nel)raska was that lexas held too much political control from Day 1, Th(' purpose of the' Big Fight Southwest ('onte'r-enee merger, announe{‘fl in 19‘)4 and etie'ctive' in I9‘)(), was to cash iti on me reasing tele'vision rights tees. The Big 1 ight schools were in s[)arse>i\ ¡K>|)ulated states that had a eombine'd 7 pe'reent ot the nation's TV sets, Th(‘ tour Texas sch(K)is that joined fh(> Big \2 w'vrv in a state with another 7 perc ent ol the nation's TVs, and they were in a conte'renee* on the verge e>t eolia[)se because ol chcMting scandals. Ni'br.iska look it as a sign ol things to come whi'n Steve Hatchell, the SW( cofTimissioner, was named the iirst commissioner ot the Big 12 and Dallas was picked over Kansas Cjt\ as league heackjuarters. Nebraska wantenl to ce)ntinue accepting an unlimited number ol partial aeade*mic (jualitiers, as allowe'd by Big Fight rules, but that policy wasn't i ar-ried over to the Big 12 largely bc'cause ot Texas' opposition. More re*centl\, Osborne was irke'd b\ the vote to play the Big 12 champi-onshi[) game' tor what would have been tive straight years at ('owboys Stadium in Arlington. Osl)orne [jrelerrc'd a north- south rotation, the point IS moot now.
