And the first Big Ten expansion domino falls. Probably. Nebraska is supposed to officially be joining the Midwest power conference by Friday.  This news we receive from Lee Barfknecht (yes, I know that’s a very unfortunate looking last name) of the Omaha World-Herald.

If you’re unfamiliar with the World-Herald, it’s the primary daily newspaper of Nebraska, as well as portions of southwest Iowa and the largest employee-owned newspaper in the United States.

Barfknecht is a sports reporter/columnist for the World-Herald and author of the World-Herald’s immensely popular Cornhuskers’ blog Big Red Today.
