    Too bad we don't make sense for them to add.

    The Big 10 actually shares in the wealth.

    Wow, the East division would be brutal. Iowa would dominate the West division.


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    Cincy or Missouri would be my vote

    Regardless of us not really being in the discussion, the trickle down effect would still affect ISU. Especially if Mizzou left, I'm sure the Big 12 would push to add a TCU or Arkansas type team to maintain the current set-up. If one of the east teams joins it would be interesting to see what would become of the Big East. Surely, they would not be able to keep going as a 7-team conference. Who could you feasibly add in that region that is a strong team?

    Why I really doubt ISU has much of a chance, I'm pretty sure Pollard will be talking to Alvarez and will be placing many calls into the Big 10. Jamie Pollard knows ISU would be far better off in the Big 10.

    No kidding, that is a power house in basketball and football (by Big Ten standards anyway).

    I could see Memphis joining the Big East if the BE needed to add a team. It would renew their old CUSA rivalries with Cincy and Louisville (assuming one of those teams doens't join the Big Ten, which I don't think will happen).

    I cant see Mizzou leaving the BigXII, Rutgers, Syracuse and Pitt make the most since. I hope they mix up the east/west b/c Iowa only competition would really be Wisky....so alot like the BIGXII, lopsided.

    Re: Big 10 to Push for Expansion - Interesting Development...

    Interesting. I wonder how big of a chain of realignments this is going to set off... Yeah, it's only one team, and they're not likely to pull from a BCS conference (I don't see Missouri leaving, no matter how much anyone talks about it), but the Big East is most hilariously unstable conference ever. That's going to come toppling down sooner or later anyway, and pulling a team to the Big 10 would make it 'sooner'.


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    Re: Big 10 to Push for Expansion - Interesting Development...

    I didn't even think of the C-USA teams, that's a good point. It would still weaken that conference if they lost Pitt, who I'm assuming would be the Big Ten's prime target. I'd say it would almost mean the BCS swapping their auto-qualifier with the Mountain West.

    Iowa wins BIG if they break the conference that way.

    Re: Big 10 to Push for Expansion - Interesting Development...

    I love the big 12. I just hate our T.V. package. If we got a good t.v. package I would be all for staying. However the big 12 t.v. package consists of OU and the Texas schools playing on t.v.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    If I were the President of the University of Iowa I would lobby hard for this. The proposed West Divsion is unbelievably weak; while the East has Ohio State, Penn State, and Michigan. If Missouri ever left for the Big Ten, I would look for Arkansas to leave the SEC and come to the Big XII. There were rumors a few years ago that they would love to join the Big XII.
