    Re: Maryland and Rutgers to Big 10?

    I don't see why they'd want Maryland.... this isn't exactly a strong college sports base

    Rutgers and Maryland are just looking to lighten up their football schedules.

    Re: Maryland and Rutgers to Big 10?

    So the B1G might get two nobodies and the Big 12 would be the landing place for an obvious FSU/clemson move if the SEC doesnt take them first?

    Irony

    Re: Maryland and Rutgers to Big 10?

    I don't understand it really. I guess it proves this conference realignment will never be over until the networks get there way with one super conference combining the top 3 or 4 from every conference into one NFL Lite. The big should focus on building their teams from withing rather than adding a couple of other mediocre talents from another conference.

    Can't see Maryland paying $50 million. That's an exit fee.

    Re: Maryland and Rutgers to Big 10?

    Big10 network makes money by having cable subscribers. Getting into the Maryland/ NoVa market would pay.

    A news article suggested this is in reaction to ND moving to the ACC

    The newbies haven't received full shares because the leagues kick in to cover the exit fees. See WVU.

    How long does it take for MD to cover $50MM? This seems outrageous.

    I'll wait for Bowlsby to comment. It might be a long wait.

    Re: Maryland and Rutgers to Big 10?

    What really needs to happen is a grass roots campaign to get the big ten network off basic cable. There are way more people that don't watch it than do and if they would collectively make a big enough stink it could die.

    It still gets the New York and Maryland/DC market. Lots of TVs there. Plus if youve got powerhouses like Ohio State and Michigan visiting those places every year then college sports will gain momentum in those markets.

    I understand which markets you are attracting. I'm saying they are not college football markets. NFL, MLB, NHL and NBA all have a presence in those markets that is much stronger
