Big Ten gets first non-AAU member

Thought this was too funny not to post.  I remember everyone making a big deal about the fact that the Big Ten would only invite AAU members into the conference.  Well, apparently Nebraska just had it's AAU status revoked by a vote of the other AAU members (apparently all of the Big XII members and most - not all??? - of the Big Ten members voted to keep them, but they did not have the support of the necessary 1/3 of the membership.  It does not really have anything to do with Texas, but I thought it was kind of funny that the Big Ten ended up inviting a non-AAU member even if they did not know it at the time (although they must have known Nebraska was under review).
