The Big Ten Expansion: Athletic Tail Wags Academic Dog

The Penn State Propaganda Portal announces this morning that
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) has accepted a unanimous invitation from the Committee on Institutional Cooperation, the academic arm of the Big Ten, to join the consortium effective July 1, 2011, the same day the university will become a member of the Big Ten Conference.

Following the Big Ten Council of Presidents/Chancellors approval of UNL’s application to join the athletic conference, the matter of CIC membership was referred to the CIC provosts for action. The provosts, who govern the CIC as a "board of the whole," voted unanimously on June 16 to invite UNL to join the consortium.
I await the day that the CIC  adds a university and the Big Ten follows up with a quick  invitation to the new school. Yeah, like that'll ever happen.
