Adding the Nebraska Cornhuskers to the NCAA Big 10 Conference is bad for the Minnesota Golden Gophers
The first kick-off may be months away, but college football has been reeling the past 10 days with the announcement that the Big 12 Conference, comprised of NCAA Division-I teams, would no longer exist after this season. The Big 12 dissolution was related to the amount of money earned for Big 12 TV spots in relation to the other conferences, without the demand for Big 12 games on TV the conference could not support itself. What it all boils down to is TROUBLE for the Minnesota Golden Gophers and the Big 10 conference. The Big 10 offered an invitation to the Nebraska Cornhuskers, who are a powerhouse when it comes to DI football. By adding in another extremely competitive football team the Minnesota Golden Gophers Football Roster is going to have to work that much harder just to stay ranked within the conference and have a chance a good postseason Bowl Bid. The 2011 Gophers Football Schedule will reflect the change in the conference and will spell WORK for the Gopher Football Players. Check back for more information about the Big 10 and the rest of the former Big 12 schools.
