Game Time: New Pac-10 ALREADY Making Southwest Conference Look Like The Ivy League (...and revised PRS rankings!)

The winds of change yesterday went from cool breeze to Hurricane Tom (as in Osborne, as in "adios", as in "How's that taste, Kansas?"), with Nebraska apparently accepting an invitation from the Big Ten to become its twelfth member.

It remains to be seen if Nebraska is the twelfth and FINAL member of the Big Ten -- Syracuse, Pitt, and Rutgers have their troops amassed at the border, Notre Dame is still sitting up in the ivory tower waiting for it all to play out, and Missouri is the college equivalent of a homeless person trying to see if their relatives will let them back in ("We were just joking, Big 12!!")
