All of Perlman's excuses are disadvantages for us also and yet we are good enough to still have membership. He cries that they are at a disadvantage because they can't count the medical school's research dollars-well we can't count SUI's medical school's research dollars and yet we still qualify for membership. He cries that they are disadvantaged because they are a land-grant school-well so are we and yet we are still good enough to maintain membership. He cries that they can't count research dollars funded by the USDA-well we can't count them either but yet we still maintain membership.
Perlman neglected to mention that land grant schools Penn State, Purdue, and Michigan State all have strong agriculture-based emphasis and tradition, and none are in danger of losing AAU membership.
The fact is that Nebraska is nowhere near an academic fit for the Big Ten. Faculty at other Big Ten schools have been grumbling ever since the annoucement of Nebraska's entry was made.
