Nebraska Will Be Out Of The Big 12 On June 30, 2011

The Big 12 will be quickly losing a couple of members. In under a year, on June 30, 2011, Nebraska will officially be leaving the Big 12 and joining the Big Ten.

Big 12 Commissioner Dan Beebe issued a statement along with the news.

"This agreement was accomplished through a collegial, respectful process among the Conference, its institutions, and the University of Nebraska that led to a resolution that all parties believe is fair. I appreciate the cooperation of Chancellor Harvey Perlman and Nebraska staff. The Big 12 has enjoyed its relationship with Nebraska and wishes it well in the future."

Anyone else think Beebe is being a little too nice there? As a fan of the Big 12, I don't think anyone is wishing Nebraska well in the future. And, at least early on in the process, it was not "collegial" and "respectful" between others.
