GT would have been on a Island, so they would have been out unless they had a travel partner.

Florida State? Stop the madness01-wingedeagle01-wingedeagle

North Carolina was not moving without Duke and maybe Virginia and they won't touch NC now.

Clemson is not a cultural fit, so there out.

IMHO the B1G is set for now and I only see two schools they might be interested in down the road: Missouri and Iowa State.....

Rutgers is the 2AM last resort after you strike out with the core ACC schools that would bring the BTN to the entire south Atlantic region.

The Big 10 had been talking about adding Rutgers on and off for 20 years. It's ignorant to suggest that they were a 2:00 am last resort.
I've read that the Big Ten had been grooming RU for Big Ten membership since the early 1990s as well but mostly from RU posters on this web site. Is there any evidence that attests to this claim?

Well its not like they are going to put out an official press release for a candidate that they gave a wink and nod to but not officially added.

I'll tell you this, Rutgers joining the Big Ten (not just wishing, but word that it'll happen in the near future) has been in the works since before internet became a thing, literally after Penn State joined in 1990, there was already talk of ongoing discussions between Rutgers and the Big Ten.
In all fairness to RU supporters, I recall hearing about the Big Ten/RU rumors from my NJ relatives well before conference realignment became a hot issue this decade. I didn't pay too mention attention because I thought the BE had a pretty decent football conference before the ACC began raiding it in 2004.

Missouri and Kansas maybe, but certainly not ISU.

From what I've heard they have a standing invite to Texas (who might come onboard) and ND (who is not coming) since the 1990s... Oklahoma has had talks as well.

Mizzou, Kansas, Iowa State, Texas Tech, Oklahoma State could all potentially be add-ons if both Texas and Oklahoma were to join and wanted to carry them along, but certainly aren't top targets.

The Big Ten will not take TT or OSU to get either UT or OU.

Nebraska and Colorado were both approached ahead of the Big XII's formation. Both rebuffed at that time. Colorado, with Texas, had standing invites from the PAC-10. The Big Ten was aware of the complexity of the Big 8 relationships, and would have absorbed at least Missouri and Kansas if it came to that to get those two schools.

Obviously, after it looked like Missouri was close to just leaving for the Big Ten on its own 15 years later, Nebraska started making calls.

The "B1G-RFP" didn't flush out Maryland, or any of the other AAU ACC schools, either.

Delaney, if you keep him at his word, even said the UMD & RU additions were done as a result of the B1G-PAC rejection. So, if B1G-PAC went through...doors close and expansion is tabled? He didn't confirm it that far. Hard to fully believe if you have UMD interested, but, who knows.
