    Big 14?

    I know the Big Ten expanding 1 team has been getting a lot of play on CF but, the Tribune is reporting that they are considering adding 3-5 teams. I think 3 is more feasible... what teams do you think would fit in the new proposed super conference?

    How about Big 14? - chicagotribune.com

    In keeping with their current practice, it would be Big Fourteen, not Big 14.

    We had a big knockdown dragout on here in several threads when that article first came out. You might want to check those threads out...

    The Big Ten will always be the Big Ten....it is a brand name, nothing more, nothing less. The name won't change, regardless of the number of teams. If it was going to change, it would have done so when Penn State was added.

    Agreed they will figure out a way to incorporate the # into the Big ten logo like they did with the 11

    Re: Big 14?

    Going to 14 would seem to be the smart move - why waste time adding just one. The Big 10 could really screw with the Big 12 and ISU by bringing in NU, MU and KU. This brings in a traditional power in football and basketball and the KC and Omaha TV markets. They could go east with Pitt, SU & Rutgers but I don't think college sports are the TV draw out east as they are in the midwest. In any event this may start the mega conference screnario that has been discussed years ago. When the dominos start falling we can only hope ISU has a chair.

    Re: Big 14?

    All this stuff will probably benefit ISU, as it will force better TV and revenue sharing from Big 12 to make sure teams don't leave.

    Or the Big12 will fold as the Big 10 takes MU and NU. OU and OSU join with the Texas teams to create their own conference. Meanwhile KU, KSU, CU and ISU are left looking for a conference to join. It could become a very bad situation for ISU.

    True.

    I don't think it has much of a chance of happening, there is probably more $ to be made if they take eastern schools.

    Re: Big 14?

    Then ISU would join Conference USA?

    Poke fun all you want, but the "Little 14" would have DEEP pockets if they do expand. They won't expand for the sake of expanding. They will do their research and be very picky about what they are looking for in a school. The Big XII should pray to whoever they pray to that Texas doesn't decide to jump ship. That has to be very concerning that one school stabilizes the entire conference.
