When the SW Conference


blew up Texas and their buddies joined the Big 8 . In those days there was a thing called Prop 48.
You could bring in a poor student but he had to sit a year.. During that year some programs
( Nebraska ) would get the kid in Basket Weaving type class and get them eligible. Texas , Baylor
A&M ,OU voted to raise the entrance standards and were joined by CU to eliminate Prop 48.
Right after that time the NCAA raised the entrance standards. It really gave Nebraska a case of the Red Ass. 😡 That is when you saw Nebraska start falling. They hated Texas and the power they brought to the new Big 12. As you know it lead to Nebraska jumping to the Big 10.. A
program like Nebraska had years of coaching stability and now they go through coaches like you go through Sox’s. I think out of desperation we will see Frost move to running option type O.
