A snippet from the piece, “As we wrote here three years ago, we believe Florida State would be a Nebraska-like addition to the SEC.  The Cornhuskers didn’t bring a wealth of cable households to the Big Ten when they joined, but they did bring a national brand.  A “Nebraska versus anybody” football game will get higher ratings — and please more network partners — than any game featuring Maryland or Rutgers.”
