RE: Report: B1G could add Maryland, Rutgers
I don't think UConn is a sure bet. They have a pending lawsuit with the ACC. I don't see that as a given in anyway. I think the Bearcats are more than capable of making noise in either the ACC or Big 12. It just depends on how quickly these conferences want to get to 16 teams. I'm confident that Cincinnati will be included in the top 64. Where and how will be anyones guess. We are geographically located well when it comes to the Big 12 and ACC, we are a school similar in size and status and we have solid perfoming athletics in many areas.

So all the "inside sources" from the past saying everything would be alright were wrong? Next you guys are going to say all the basketball games won't sell out once we return to being rated... oh wait.

I do recall Rutgers fans posting on the Big East board, a couple of months ago, that their AD told
some boosters that he would have an interesting surprise for them this season.

RE: Report: B1G could add Maryland, Rutgers
Hmmm, I first heard about this when a friend at the basketball game today mentioned it to me and he was pretty upset about the whole thing. I was a little shocked and really didn't know what to say to him. Has this been reported by anyone else except Andy Katz on some ESPN blog from 24 hours ago? Not to say there couldn't be some fire behind this puff of smoke, it just seems weird no one else is talking about it in the media.
The only possible silver lining that comes to mind is that if there's another huge game of musical chairs amongst the big boys, UC could slip into the B12 or ACC to help which ever gets raided worst keep up their numbers. For whatever reason, we may not be the prettiest girl at the bar, but as we near 2 AM maybe someone will panic and take us home.

Just came across this, which doesn't really add much to the original story.

RE: Report: B1G could add Maryland, Rutgers
Lol!!! Love these pieces from the article:

Quote:Unfortunately, tradition doesn't fill the football stadium on Saturdays. Maryland can't sell out the luxury boxes at the newly renovated Tyser Tower inside Byrd Stadium, and only 35,244 fans showed up Saturday on senior day for a game against 10th-ranked Florida State.
Quote:Given the plight of the school's struggling athletic program, the Terrapins' stature as a charter member of the ACC may not mean as much as the prospect of playing a home football game against, say, Ohio State,
Quote:Maryland's six home games this season averaged 36,022 fans in a stadium that seats 54,000. Home matchups against Ohio State, Michigan and Nebraska would surely be sellouts. And, it is entirely possible that the school would consider expanding the on-campus stadium if it joins the Big Ten.

What a joke. They can't get more than 35k for #10 Florida State, but they'll build a bigger stadium for the once every 6 years O$U comes to town!!!???

RE: Report: B1G could add Maryland, Rutgers
I just don't understand the 14 team model. It isn't conducive to developing good recurring rivalries. Looking at two seven team divisions in the B10 you can almost name the bottom three in each before play even begins each year. Of course I guess they won't care--it's the money thing. But it's not improving college football. The only silver lining could be the B12 adding four with UC having one of those chairs when the music stops.

Yep. My reaction was pretty much the same as yours. Why would they want to invite this turd to their conference, plus help foot the bill for a $50 million buyout? On the surface makes no sense.

This is no longer sounding like a matter of "if" rather than a matter of "when".

One can only hope that this will trigger another round of scrambling to where conferences will want to snatch up the remaining quality schools. Hopefully that includes UC and UofL. Our only hope now is if the goal now is to get to 16 team Superconferences. That is best case scenario. I can't see the Big12 staying at 10, but who knows.

It would be hilarious if ND got cold feet and backed out of the ACC deal.

Maryland is pretty awful right now; Rutgers football has never won the Big East and their basketball is among the worst in the league.
Good news--this suggests it's all about the TV markets. Bad news--we're about to lose the #1 TV market later this week when Rutgers follows MD. Let's hope another conference wants our #25 TV market and inroads into Ohio. Right now the B10 owns the state and you'd like to think the B12 might want to plant their flag here, spanning from West Virginia to Texas as the B10 will now span from Nebraska to New York.

Don't know if they have any pull at all, but you'd think the hillbillies would be in the corner of bringing in UC and Lousyville. I would imagine the fanbase is probably getting pretty sick of half their conference games being about 850 miles away in a different time zone. Having those two schools in the conference would at least provide them some kind of geographic bridge to the rest of the conference, plus it gives the other schools access to Ohio's recruiting grounds. Although logic seems to play little roll in these decisions, I just don't see Boise St. to the B12, unless it's football only, which I don't think the other schools would accept. Outside of football the rest of their athletic programs are about on the level of the GCL and their academics aren't anything to brag about either.

Absolutely right regarding Boise. I haven't seen them mentioned for the B12 except on message boards. They've got a great football program but I believe their invite to the Big East caused current members some heartburn. They bring nothing else to the party in terms of basketball, TV market or academic profile and I'd be surprised if the B12 was seriously considering them anymore than the PAC12 ever considered Fresno. Having said that we'll probably learn tomorrow it's a done deal!

Not implausible at all. The ACC has already begun the "hybrid conference" movement, by bringing ND in.

Their clear strength is basketball. Might as well overplay that hand, just as the BE did for all those years.
