    I've been saying this for years. Osborne (as AD) and then Eichorst did some things to get Colorado and Oklahoma into rotation, but it would be cool to pick up Mizzou, Kansas and KState again.

    And while my preference would be for Big 8 teams, I would not mind settling the score with the Orange Cows. A&M was always a fun game, too.

    Here's my order of preference (including the Terrible Texans)
    1. Oklahoma (is there any question here?)
    2. Colorado
    3. Mizzou
    t-4. Kansas / KSU
    t-6. Texas / A&M
    t-8. OkST, ISU, Texas Tech, Baylor

    While this would never happen, I'd love to see annual games between Nebraska, Oklahoma, Mizzou and Colorado. We could even find an old Big 8 Trophy to pass around. It's kind of fun since it currently ties together teams from the PAC, XII, B1G and SEC.

    Good thoughts ;)

    Get Kansas as a terrible out of conference game and do a 2-1 for our fans. Grab Iowa state and others.

    We should do an annual trade with Kansas. They give us a football win and then we sacrifice Tim Miles and a virgin to their basketball team.

    Do a 2-1 for us in football they get 2-1 in basketball. Hell even try to get a 3-1.

    Take OU and CU.
    The rest, pass.

    I agree the priority needs to be on OU and CU. If that's all we can get, I'm fine. But I'd like to see an occasional game with Mizzou. The Flea Kicker and Suh snapping Gabbert in half during a rainstorm are just a few of my favorite memories from Columbia.

    We couldn't beat the Longhorns when they were good. We couldn't beat 'em when they were bad. Maybe we learned our lesson. :)

    That said, I'd love to see the Huskers in my own backyard.

    I was going to say at least half the games in the series wouldn't be officiated by Big XII refs but I'm not real confident in B1G officiating either. Maybe it would be best to construct the contact to require neutral conference officials, if it ever comes to pass.

    If NU was smart they would try to play somewhere in Texas once a year.

    Sure, let’s start with the Cotton Bowl or the Alamo Bowl! ;)

    No reason to want to play Texas' red-clad stepchildren (Oklahoma). They can go fly a kite for denying us at the start of the Big 12. Any other team is OK by me, including Texas.
