GREAT IDEA!!! Expand to 22. Then show Purdue and Northwestern the door for over a century of ineptitude.

Northwestern football has had 9 winning seasons (3 Big 10 Conference champions or Co-Champions) the last 21 seasons, 4 seasons with a 6-6 regular season record and 8 losing seasons. Not great but a huge improvement over the previous 50 years and better than a number of other conference members (Indiana, Minnesota, Illinois) from 1995 to the present. Before considering what program(s) you want to shed, look at what they've done in the last 20 years.

Cats also had their first 20 win basketball season in 15/16 and with Collins leading the program they will continue to trend upward

The product has to evolve. That likely means contraction of top teams into a whole new league - and then expansion as allows. I see a football only "NCAA".

Instead of contracting, the Big 10 is adding affiliate members in sports where it makes sense i.e Johns Hopkins for LaCrosse, Notre Dame for Ice Hockey.

I see the potential to add additional affiliate members in sports that have International appeal to not only strengthen the conference but add to it's International attractiveness. Even with the Notre Dame additional the conference has only 7 Ice Hockey members and with the cost of arena construction a financial obstacle for Big 10 conference members, adding North Dakota as an affiliate Ice Hockey member makes sense on a number of levels

1) The Sioux have been nationally competitive for years

2) Border a Big 10 conference member state

3) Have a strong fan base following in Canada

Not that the conference needs more Wrestling membership, but Missouri would a prime candidate for affiliate membership in that sport as the Tigers are nationally competitive in a sport the SEC does not offer (they are MAC affiliate members) and might want the challenge of a tougher conference schedule.

Was that from the Mizzou "insider" post on land thieves?

Yes. he said 3 to 5. I wouldn't mind that. It would bring some balance to the population for the footprint.

Just drive along North Broad Street and you'll notice substantive, positive change in the growth and expansion of Temple. It no longer is a commuter school. The students that live in North Philadelphia are fueling gentrification of the neighborhood, turning it into a college town but with urban feel and modern look.

The school president, a BIG man, realizes the importance of athletics to the overall image and financial health of a school, is moving forward with plans of building an on-campus, expandable football stadium. The football HC appears to enjoy working and living in the Philadelphia area. The basketball arena is new, although I think the school would be better off with a younger men's basketball HC. Baseball, lacrosse, and ice hockey are club sports. With additional revenue, there's no reason these sports could become competitive, scholarship-based sports.

While Temple is improving, give it a couple of years before considering them.

Their home conference schedule this year has Cincinnati, USF, ECU and SMU. If they can draw 35000 against that home slate, sure. They've built a following and can then add in an area that already has coverage. If not, then it's hard to justify the addition.

Mind linking? Curious to see what they are saying about it.

Edit: Nevermind, found it

Missouri would be fine with Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas. The Big Ten could use some more football brands and Oklahoma and Texas fit the bill and provide a major foothold into the state of Texas. I can't imagine a better pair to get the Big Ten into Texas which should be the goal.

I've thought for some time that OU and KU were good expansion candidates for the Big Ten. National brands - one fb, one bb. Also allows Purdue to move back to the East.

...or is it IU?
