    Big 10 to expand.. Again!

    Just heard on Kxno that the Big 10 has extended offers to Virginia, North Carolina and FSU.

    That didn't take long...

    Maybe the B1G will gobble up all the teams, become ridiculously powerful, and overthrow the abomination known as the NCAA.

    Stupid. FSU joining the B1G makes less sense than them joining the Big 12, geographically.

    Pretty soon the entire nation is going to be in the Big 10.

    Not seeing anything on this other than here. Anyone got more confirmation than KXNO?

    If they grab FSU, the B12 really missed a chance to expand (unless they were turned down).

    I heard earlier today from a different source than KXNO that they had extended a invite to North Carolina, did not mention the other 2 though.

    Bummed if true about FSU, UVA/UNC might as well be in stone by now though. Don't blame FSU for wanting out of ACC (they're already flying to Boston, PA, New York and soon Connecticut), but think they and a few other ACC teams would be a better fit in an expanded Big 12 than Big Ten.

    Re: Big 10 to expand.. Again!

    If this is true I find it the strangest way for it to be reported. Why would a BTN guy go on KXNO and talk about B1G expansion? Why wouldn't their website report, why not leak it to an internet site. KXNO seems like a strange place for this to start.

    I'll bet FSU is ********. Why would they invite 3 teams, especially one that's not geographically contiguous and an AAU member since that's so important to them?
