A new TV contract will apparently keep the remaing 10 schools in the Big 12 together. UNL Chancellor Harvey Perlman says he’s that pleased NU’s long-stand conference partners Kansas, Kansas State and Iowa State will still be in a major conference. But Perlman told us, NU is still much better off in the Big Ten Conference.
“We’re coming into the big 10 hoping to be there for another 100 years and certainly over the longer term….this will not be a financial detriment.”
Perlman says with the new Big 12 TV agreement, he feels it would be even more inappropriate for Nebraska to be penalized for leaving the league.
