Insanity


Oh child, please!
Corn Nation looks at a whitehouse.gov petition to change Nebraska's main Big Ten rivalry from Iowa to Wisconsin. I would assume the intent is to make the Badgers the last opponent on the Cornhuskers' schedule, as Nebraska, Wisconsin and Iowa are all now in the same division. Sadly, nothing in the B1G is going to ever compare to Nebraska vs. Oklahoma, so y'all should be trying to figure out a way to get that one back up and running.
