    (RE: Article) It is my contention that the Rust Belt economic downturn is one of the prime reasons for the Big Ten's drive to expand. They see the hand writing on the wall while most others are still afraid of shadows of Big Ten past in the current talk of growth. They are proactive in my opinion.

    Ridiculous. Absolutely Ridiculous.

    The Big 10 is the Best Fuc*ing Football Conference in America. Hands Down. It is crazy to say that they have no Recruiting Base. F'ing Crazy.

    Phil Steele had no idea what he was saying when he put the Big 10 as the 6th best Football Conference behind the SEC, Big 12, ACC, MWC, and Pac-10. He had no idea.
