    Re: Big 10 could kick out Penn State

    I was listening to 600AM in CR on the way home yesterday and they were discussing the Penn State situation. They argued that Penn State will be heavily penalized, but not miss a game of football because it would negatively impact the rest of the Big 10 conference financially. It was interesting to get the Hawk/B1G homer opinion on this and it does make financial sense. Right or wrong I don't think the Big 10 is quite so high minded that they will totally expel PSU when they think of the potential money lost.

    I agree. The bottom line will prevail while they do something to save face. Any league would do it, it's not just the Big 10.

    Re: Big 10 could kick out Penn State

    I don't see it happening, but if it did, it would be interesting to see how Missouri proceeded. I'm positive they would throw feelers out to the Big 10 behind the SEC's back, and probably end up burning their bridges with their new conference.

    You mean to tell me that the B1G would put money and athletics ahead of academics regardless of how much their homers try to tell you it's an academic conference. That's why the chose Nebraska is because of their upstanding academics and AAU membership....OH wait a minute.

    Re: Big 10 could kick out Penn State

    I can see the Big Ten forcing Penn State to play all of their games away. The money is still there for the conference and Penn State still gets punished.

    Not a bad idea. Do they ever actually do things like that?

    I was talking about this yesterday with someone. It's easy to say "ban them a year" or whatever, but the legal fall out will take awhile to figure out. Do they pay the Iowa's of the world if they don't play? Is that game a straight up forfeit that counts as a "W" for Iowa? If a Big 10 team is undefeated and one of those wins is vs Penn State (forfeit) and another team is undefeated, who gets the nod to the Nat Championship game (again, that's real money). And that is real money lost for Iowa....ticket sales, concessions, etc. I do think that, big picture, the other big 10s will take a hit and that's ok. Kinda the idea of when things are good you benefit from certain members, you also have to take that hit when those members don't make the money.

    It'll be interesting to see how that all pans out. One thing I think Murph/Andy pointed out that is true, the Big 10 Network really missed by not covering the pressers, etc that were happening. This is real Big 10 news, even if negative.

    Re: Big 10 could kick out Penn State

    B10 is posturing to make it look like they are considering all the options. If they can throw stuff out there that makes some people actually believe they would consider kicking PSU out it makes the league look better. They aren't actually considering doing it.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Re: Big 10 could kick out Penn State

    I'm not sure why everybody is bagging on the Big Ten. You know the Big XII would do the same thing. Are we really to believe that the Big XII would actually kick out Okie State or K-State?



    What ever happened to truth, justice and the American Way?

    One of those two would have a better shot of getting kicked out than Penn State. People don't realize that Penn State is the most valuable program in the Big 10. It would be on par of kicking Texas out.

    Iowa State Cyclones (BB): 28-8 - .778

    last year I heard a Husker fan talking about how the Big 10 was a better fit for the Huskers because of their high academic standing and the way the Big 10 valued academics.
    I didn't bother asking him about their AAU membership, or lack of.
