    A Blog From Within Big 10 Country

    Obviously, this is simply a "blog," so take it for what it's worth. This one however, comes from the bowels of Big 10 country, Chicago, Illinois.

    Notable excerpts:

    Multiple sources have told me that Notre Dame, Missouri and Nebraska are all poised to receive invites from the Big Ten. An announcement could come as early as Wednesday...

    ...if Missouri gets an invite to the Big Ten, it will have Notre Dame to thank. Without Notre Dame, the Big Ten would not have an interest in breaking up the Big XII and pushing Texas to the Pac-10, so it would likely have only invited one school to the immediate west: Nebraska.

    The most interesting comment that Jim Delany had in his press conference was that this could be a multi-phase expansion for the Big Ten.

    But this, I found to be the most interest portion of the blog:

    Does that mean that Jim Delany and the Big Ten are just going to give up on Texas? Hell to naw! Anyone that thinks otherwise clearly doesnít understand the long-term demographic, academic and financial ambitions of the conference. The double chess smack talk has only begun. IF the Big Ten gets a commitment from Notre Dame (and once again, thatís a massive IF), then the conference has a completely different sale strategy to make one final power play to Texas. The Big XII will effectively be destroyed with Nebraska and Missouri joining. That leaves the Big Ten at 14 schools with 2 natural spots remaining to get up to 16. Instead of selling a quick and easy Kia like the Pac-10, itís telling Texas that it can have a Rolls Royce.

    Here is a link to the blog. Happy reading!

    So the blog is from where the Big Ten releases all of its ****?

    The minute I saw it was from Frank the Tank, I stopped reading. The guy has no real info.

    The Big 12 will be destroyed if NU leaves, apparently (according to everything I've read). This seems to suggest an outcome that would destroy the Big 12 regardless.

    I wish there was a limit to how many threads fuskers should start. Like 0.

    I know you're stating to "take it for what it's worth" but I really have zero respect for this guy's opinion. To be truthful, almost all the blogs I've read to date, bottom line, have no clue as to what's going on just like the rest of us.


    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.
