    Re: BIG Beyond Maryland & Rutgers

    I am surprised Pac 12 is not going after Rutgers if academics is needed out West.

    Vanderbilt is the smartest academic SEC team and plays football like the BIG. I think they would be a good fit. Then SEC could go get a real football team. BIG might want to absorb Tulane also.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Its the old adage remade: if a commercial is showed on tv and no one is around to see it, is it really aired?

    Just got an interesting DM on twitter from a friend in the Maryland Athletic Department. Said that Kansas and Virginia Tech are the next targets of the B1G and that Kansas is the most likely...

    They will do anything to try to pad themselves with wins. Now that the league is so low, they need a new bottom feeder so the other scrubs can move up.

    If there is anything to this, it may have more to do with basketball.

    I'm sure it's just about expanding their "contiguous footprint" more than anything...

    They're just pinging those hippies in Lawrence cause they don't really believe in all that money stuff. I honestly think they may just be probing the B12 to see how strong it is. Delaney may be interested in a lot more than the B1G -- and destabilizing the B12 would help him a lot.

    Re: BIG Beyond Maryland & Rutgers

    Super Conferences are already here.

    But 4 16 team super conferences is not going to happen. It is not based in reality. It is based on media and bloggers wanting a nice neat system to crown a champion. But no one has ever realistically explained how we would get there. Pac12 is not expanding. They don't have anyone to add.

    Plus even if the 4 big conferences are the powers, they will not have exclusive access to the playoffs. It will be harder for a team outside of those conf to play in playoffs, but one of them is in the NC game this year.

    The big 4 also will not break away from NCAA and form their own division. I laugh every time I see someone make that statement. They look at this as a football only issue and the schools consider all sports even though football drives the bus.

    So, are you putting it out there that somebody in the Big 10 wants to go after Kansas? If so, when should we hear the typical rumblings?

    Or are you saying that Kansas is likely to be the next school poached by the Big 10? If so, when?

    We need to know so that we can assess your claim about putting things out there that "come true."

    What he put out there is exactly what he said. Kansas and Va Tech were the next targets of the Big 10 with Kansas being more likely. Not sure why that post by a reputable poster got your panties in a bunch.

    Reputable poster does not mean a reputable source of information on expansion. You must be desperate to see some panties if casting doubt over 4th had info (at best) is getting you so flustered Clark.
