08:33 AM ET 02.27 | Tom Osborne turned 75 on Thursday, a milestone that doesn't often pass without someone wondering about the future. Is there a succession plan in place? These were once sensitive topics around Osborne. Bring them up and risk making the man feel like he's being pushed out. Nobody's trying to do that. After speaking with Osborne on Thursday, I had the impression he has a timetable. He can see the light at the end of the tunnel. And, for the first time, he said he would be glad to help pick his successor -- if asked. Osborne doesn't have a contract. He says he works "at the prerogative" of Chancellor Harvey Perlman, who loves the job Osborne has done since Steve Pederson was fired in October 2007. Why wouldn't he?

He'll move them to another conference because tOSU and Michigan control the conference too much.

Doesn't matter. whoever it is will fail and he will blame Texas then recommend Nebraska move to the All Valley Conference where the NU karate team will lose to Daniel LaRussa on a crane technique that he will claim he did not want in the rules but Texas insisted and got their way. Of course the championships were held in Dallas and not Kansas City.

ROFL at the Crane technique......

It is always Texas' fault, its written on tablets upon Mt Sinai
