    What if the Big 10 goes to 14 or 16?

    I cant believe they would go to 16 but what if they go to 14


    Notre Dame say they are out.


    I am worried that it would mean

    Missouri
    Nebraska
    Rutgers in!

    The Big 12 would have to add a TCU and a Houston?

    Who else Colorado State?

    Memphis?

    What if Colorado bolts to the Pac 10

    Iowa State is in a bad way us and the Kansas schools could really get hung out to dry.

    What if they go 16

    Missouri
    Kansas
    Nebraska
    Rutgers
    Pittsburgh




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

    If missouri and nebraska went to the big 10 without ISU, we might as well leave for the mac or the MWC. The big 12 would just add a couple more southern teams and ISU would be isolated way up here, especially if Colorado went Pac-10.

    If the Big 10 goes to 14 I think we have an excellent shot.

    ISU-Missouri-Nebraska would be an excellent add for the big 10 if they went to 14. Built in rivalries with the potential to build new ones between ISU\nebraska\mizzou and Minn\Wisconsin\Ill,

    Would it be ISU vs Kansas?

    Rutgers is getting in for sure if the conference goes to 14

    Iowa State is not going to be invited to join the Big Ten! As many others have stated, we don't have much to offer in terms of creating revenue for that league! That league wants to expand its influence into markets that will make money. Sadly, they already own this market...

    Also...if they do invite a team from the "west" (of its current makeup), it will be Mizzou in hopes they bring StL and KC markets with them.

    Re: What if the Big 10 goes to 14 or 16?

    Is this just all wild speculation on everyone's part or does any of this have any basis in reality outside of someone posting something on a message board? I just heard on the news here yesterday in chicago, the big 10 commissioner was quoted as saying, "We are not actively pursuing expansion for the Big 10, we are only looking into the idea of expansion. Sorry, I don't keep up on a lot of this stuff and I'm just wondering if I missed an article somewhere that said "The Big 10 would love these teams!"

    As much as I despise the idea of ever joining the Big 10, I do kind of like the idea of a Northern Super Conference. At the same time, I see that conference falling behind on the Florida and Texas markets and eventually falling behind in competing with the southern teams as well.

    What is the point in having more than 12 teams in a conference?

    In the case of the Big Ten, adding more cable networks that carry the Big Ten network.

    The more teams added to the Big Ten, the more the revenue pie gets split up and the share per team reduced. Thus, the teams added need to bring in revenue to offset the smaller share, or else it doesn't make financial sense to expand.

    Revenue basically comes through TV deals, so the Big Ten will either expand into areas that will get them on more cable systems or better cable tiers, or expand with flashly teams that will get them a better TV deal come 2015.

    I wonder if the Big Ten is concerned that the recent perception of the conference being weaker in FB will hurt them during the next round of TV negotiations, and thus they want to bulk up with some extra teams.

    In any case, I don't see how the Big Ten adding ISU helps the Big Ten with any of these issues.
