Osborne: Move to Big Ten for stability

Published 08/03/2010, The Daily Republic

CHICAGO (AP) — Athletic director Tom Osborne insisted Nebraska wasn’t seeking riches or ducking competition when it decided to bolt the Big 12 for the Big Ten. He said the move was about stability.

They’ll start play in the Big Ten next year, one of college football’s traditional powers joining a tradition-rich league that was trying to maintaining its footing in a shaky landscape. “There was a lot of uncertainty in the Big 12,” Osborne said Monday at Big Ten media day. “We felt this was a stable league, that it was going to be here for a long time.”
