I seem to remember that Nebraska was an AAU member but lost membership only after the B1G offer was made.
As an alumni of Ohio State and UConn, I think UConn would be a terrific fit with the B1G. Their fans are knowledgeable, dedicated, fiercely loyal, and know how to support their teams at home and on the road. Women's basketball frequently sells out games. Women's basketball! There is a big interest in football as well and fans are just looking for an excuse to become a two sport school.

Not to be a troll, but there are 41 countries in North America.
