    Re: ***OFFICIAL BIG 12 EXPANSION THREAD 2.0***

    Not interested in expansion. I like the 10 teams we have and the round robin. For me there is no interest in playing Notre Dame, FSU, Louisville etc especially if it means we aren't playing Oklahoma/ OSU/ and UT every year. I'd much rather play them than any of these teams that have been suggested for expansion. I couldn't care less about expanding to 12 so we can have a championship football game that KU isn't going to be playing in anyways. KU/KSU/ and ISU will benefit greatly for having twice the exposure in Texas we ever did in the old big 12 by staying at 10.

    This seems to sum it up:

    Source: Maryland to Big Ten is 'pretty serious' | National Football Post

    Don't really care either way, but it would be interesting.

    The guy that runs the Maryland 247 site is saying the move to the B10 is a done deal as well:

    This could make Florida State attempt to get into the Big XII even harder now.

    Good. I hope we stay at 10 for a LONG, LONG, LONG time.

    I know that the powers that be have a better grasp of economics than you, thankfully.

    Can we jump to the big 10 too? A few more football games against unranked teams would be nice

    If this is true, look for Pac12 to make moves soon...and if Maryland is paying 50 mil buyout then no one is safe. 14 or 16 looks like the new normal.

    The only way I'd take Louisville is if Florida State came with them.

    Wow- if ESPN is jumping on this, there must be something to it...

    If Maryland/Rutgers go to the B10, are there other dominoes that fall?

    -UConn to ACC?
    -Big East would need at least 1 more to get to back to 12 when Navy joins...Air Force or BYU?
    -Does the entrance of UConn to the ACC get Florida State or Clemson upset enough to pack their bags?
    -Do Va Tech or NC State sense enough instability to reconsider the SEC's offers?

    With the beatdown they took today, Maryland might fit right in with the Big Ten.

    For a couple of years, but then recruiting will suffer because of not playing in Texas anymore. I say no thanks. We are passing Iowa and that is because we are in the Big 12 and they are in the Big 10.

    Who would the Pac12 go after? An ACC school?
