    The Big 10 was happy with 12 schools also.

    I wouldn't be shocked that if GT does go then the B1G has to have 16 lined up and we don't know who it just doesn't make any sense. I also wouldn't be shocked if they are going to 16 within a couple weeks that the SEC knows and they have their 2 schools all lined up as well

    Doesn't feel the same as when Maryland was rumored. This seems more "made up".

    May end up being true...we'll see.

    It was the President, but yes. I put zero weight in the TV announcers knowing anything.

    Next week will be interesting.

    something is going on but who and where idk. Still with the SEC saying that 14 doesn't work you have to think that both them and the B1G are looking at getting to 16 the B1G more concerned about TV and the SEC about not having any schools from states that already have SEC teams

    I would bet all of CW's coupons that GT is NOT going to the Big10. This "smoke" smells like bs.

    I agree. This smells fishy, and almost feels forced. I thought the mentions last night on Fox were a bit out of place, almost like the comments were planted. It may end up happening, but it feels more like GT is being used to put pressure on someone else.

    Of course they are, but that does not mean they are not themselves an actual target. To anyone that has followed this, the Big 10 (or any conference) needs to use other ACC teams to get to UNC and UVa. Start with the weakest link (Maryland) and then work your way to UNC.

    I honestly get that GT is an academic fit for the Big 10, but it's just not a cultural fit. They would be the only southern school playing in a completely northern conference. I know that the Big 10 wants to expand southward, but this is an island GT would be putting themselves on that is even worse than West Virginia is in the Big 12 - unless the Big 10 is going to 20 and they give GT dancing partners. Because with WV, the Big 12 has a lot of room to expand if the final number ends up being 16.

    GT would not be on much of an island if UNC and/or UVa goes with. If both, either Duke or FSU (yeah, yeah, not AAU) would further augment the move.

    But then you're starting to get into my "Big 10 going to 20" scenario. And if it's Virginia and GT, that's still a pretty big island.
