Husker Heartbeat 6/16: Big 12 lives, Mizzou Spins and Pete Carroll Wins 'Forever!'

Welcome to Husker Heartbeat - a sampling of links and quick wit to start your morning! Keep checking each morning, Monday-Friday, for new links! We look for the offbeat as well as the straightforward - so don’t just think of us as a typical link farm!

A quick abbreviation key FYI: OWH=Omaha World-Herald, LJS=Lincoln Journal-Star, CN=Corn Nation, BRN=Big Red Network, HI=Huskers Illustrated, BRR=Big Red Report. If we need to add more - we will. Others, like ESPN, are self-explanatory.

Cool? Cool!

*As the Big 12 lives Nebraska looks at a penalty of 15 million in withheld distribution. Not that Harvey Perlman expects NU should it pay it.

*That’s some spin coming out of Missouri, isn’t it? Only Mizzou’s hometown newspaper isn’t quite buying it.

*How will the Big 12 recover from all the pain inflicted by its current members on each other?

*We know how T. Boone Pickens feels about Nebraska. Another advantage of the Big Ten: Considerably fewer oilmen.

*Husker Dan rolls into town with conference realignment thoughts.

*BRN will miss playing Texas on the field. Don’t worry; Ohio State’s plenty tough enough.

*A commentary on Chip Brown. Not bad.

*Les Miles tours the Louisiana oil spill. This guy…

*Pete Carroll’s new book is entitled "Win Forever.” Chew on that for a minute. Win forever? What does it mean? For all of time? In heaven? What are you going to do with your life, young Pete? Oh, win forever.

Looks like Les Miles is about to be out of a job. Anyone else think it is going to be fun watching Bo beat the heck out of Les. I do.

Like Missouri's not still desperately hoping for a lifeline, clinging to what's left of their self esteem. Couldn't happen to a nicer fanbase unless it was happening to UC-Boulder. I wish I could upload all the local Denver media coverage of CU's move to the Pac-10 to y'all, because it is high comedy. Relentlessly ill informed, in that naive yet still chest puffing way that only a Colorado Buffalo student/booster can master. The sort of yellow mock turtleneck wearing, "Obama" bumper sticker on their car yet voted for McCain hypocritical behavior (To be clear, I don't care who you voted for, that's your call, but I know at least 1/3 of those stickers on the Lexus' in the Folsom parking lot are LYING to seem cool.) of a self-loathing yet incredibly judgmental group of upper class California transplants that couldn't get into UCLA or Cal.

I'm going to love never having to go there ever again.
