What is this world coming to?  Should have known once we expanded out of the Midwest that things weren't going to be the same...

I've been reading up on this.  More dominoes are going to fall.  B1G isn't done yet in my opinion.  Notre Dame is on the clock.  Oregon and Washington have also reportedly applied to join.

Even if Trump were to be revealed as the Dark Lord of the Sith, he's still better than the last four presidents we've had.

Might as well give up.  The conference thing is falling apart.  My guess is that the traditional rivals in the Big Ten will still be in the same conference divisions...so then what's the point of the new teams?  I think you said it before that they're headed toward a super league, although I don't even know what that would be like.

So right now there are 14 teams in the Big Ten.  Adding what - four (or more?) more teams, and what does this accomplish?  With 12 games in each season, the teams currently are not able to play all the other teams in the conference.  It just creates a very large conference with decreased amounts of rivalry.  My guess is that the new teams will still want to play their traditional, old rivals each year, which means they'll have one foot in the Big 10, and another foot out.

Maybe I'm missing something here.  Is it all about the money?

Money from bigger media markets.  In this case LA.

I guess it was already mentioned, but Oregon joining....maybe other PAC-10 teams?

According to that story, they might go past 20 teams in the Big Ten.  This is kind of a big joke now, it seems.  The Big Ten is no more.  College Football needs to get its act together.

I just hope my Cardinals land in a good spot.  I miss the Big East.  We were a better fit there than in the ACC.  The ACC is next on the chopping block after the PAC 12 gets gutted.
