Its not just Nebraska football thats hoping for a new look these days (and yes, by new look I do mean fielding a nationally relevant football team). No, the whole state may be in for a change if new Recruiting Coordinator Shawn Watson has his way.
From the Omaha World-Herald:
The new state of Nebraska!
Oh, and what a state it would be. Besides the inevitable boom in football recruiting for the Huskers, can you imagine the political elections as bumbling corn farmers argue with hockey-playing Minneapolites? The late Paul Welstone and Tom Coburn in a UFC battle/debate? The potential for fun is endless.
Of course, while gerrymandering is easier than ever these days, we do think we have an easier solution for Nebraska: Win a few football games. Its not like the Big 12 North isnt there for the taking.
