    I see Rutgers or Missouri

    unless the Ncaa Forces Notre Dame to join




    If you have a problem - if no one else can help - and if you can find
    them - maybe you can hire: The A-Team.

    I dont see rutgers at all.. Mizzou yes if they are a land grant school. Notre Dame the most obvious but they will never go unless NBC stops the TV deal

    Re: Alvarez: Big 10 to look for 12th team

    It is an interesting hypothetical to think about what team would fit. For me the two most natural are Notre Dame and Pitt. The question for either of them is if they would even want to join the B10, particularly ND. Most likely in my opinion would be to go after one of the Big East schools. For reference here is a map of all the D1 bowl subdivision football teams:http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/c/c4/Cfdia.PNG

    I could see a school like Syracuse going to the big 10.

    I'd see them going for Mizzou. They probably want to expand their TV viewing market. Mizzou would give them the entire state of Missouri including St. Louis, and KC. Two major markets for one team and it makes since geographically.

    After all the crap the Big 12 has done to **** us off this year this would be great for us, but I don't see it happening. They already have the Iowa market from the U of I, and we don't bring another national power program to them.


    "Blamo"! The new CF approved swear word.

    Who wouldn't want to join the Big 10, except ND? I'm talking like the Pitt's, Mizzou's, Iowa State's...of the world.

    At least Mizzou has some rivalries in the Big 12 with Nebraska and KU. We have none but already have a natural rivalry with Iowa and could probably form a pretty nice one with Minnesota.

    The Big 10 would want Mizzou more for the Waltons and Kroenkes. I don't see these families allowing Mizzou to move. ISU does bring academics and research which is a very important component for the Big 10. Mizzou fits this criteria as well, but the overall culture of Mizzou is not really a good fit in the Big 10. Mizzou fits in well with the Big 12. Mizzou has subtly acquired almost as much cash as Texas, they just don't flaunt it like Texas. I know ND has a great undergradute program, but I am not sure about their grad and research programs. I think if ND had to join a conference, it would be the Big East.

    Given the Big 10s overall requirements, I am not sure any school geographically fits in with them. The Big 10 would have to grab someone from an unnatural geographical perspective.

    at this point I would not surised if ND gave in and did it


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    There is no way Mizzou goes to the big ten...

    I would say no on Syracuse. They were going to join the ACC in 2004, but Boeheim put up a fight to stay in the Big East and while the school was fighting internally about the move Virginia Tech took their place with Boston College and Miami. I can't see Boeheim willing to budge again - but I think Pitt would be a great fit. For the BCS to work they really need all the Major Conferences to have a Conference Championship game - that would clean up a lot of the BCS mess.

    I think Pitt would be another realistic school that would go to the Big 10.

    Notre Dame will never join a football conference. Ever.

    They won't have to until 2015, when their contract with NBC is up - unless they have some mediocre season with Kelly and NBC decides to drop them for something that will draw in more viewers, such as women's beach volleyball...
