    Abenaki Ambitious but rubbish.

    Haven't you followed the Penn State thread? If Penn State leaves the Big Ten no one East or South of Columbus will watch any Big Ten sports. The league will crumble and the Ghost of Joe Paterno will wander the Midwest without seeing anything.

    Update from Frank the Tank comments.

    So 97.1 hasn't talked about the rumor yet but is allegedly going to do so today (the post was from last night).
  7. Buckeye86

    Buckeye86 I do not choose to discuss it

    The chances of them having something useful/accurate to add to the conversation don't seem all that great.

    Lets swap Pitt for PSU

    Best of both worlds...

    Keep roughly the same area for the network....

    Watch PSU struggle in the ACC and keep up with there the world is against us campaign.

    Watch Pitt become more important in the NCAA world then PSU

    There heads will literally explode.

    This sounds great until you factor in the Mark May effect

    Fix'd.

    I think.

    Look, I don't think anyone can question my Ped Aggy hating credentials, but I've come around to the position that the pedsters should stay.

    Keep your friends close and your enemies closer, kind of thing. We keep them under fucking control. We keep their media markets locked down. We keep their throats firmly underneath our hobnailed boot on the field. We prevent them from ever rising up and threatening decent folk again.

    Plus, with each loss to Ohio State or Michigan, with every questionable call that goes against them, with every year that goes by without a conference championship, we get to revel in the sweet, exquisite glory of their agony.

    These people are the biggest assholes and most despicable fanbase in college football. If there is something that will make them happy, why in the fuck would we give it to them?

    If nothing else it's good for the entertainment value of watching the reactions among other fan bases:

    Maryland

    Rutgers fan hoping it's true on the Maryland Scout board which seems to be a theme Rutgers fans are EXCITED by the news (since apparently they think that means they're next). Meanwhile the Rutgers response makes Syracuse fans lol...and of course a crazy expansion rumor wouldn't be completely without WVU weighing in.

    From the WVU thread...



    Soo... Delaney is not only going to blow up the ACC BUT the B12 as well. Awesome! :slappy:

    Mike80 make it happen

    FWIW I really doubt Maryland will ever go to the Big Ten, even though they would be a great fit I think.

    Maybe if the Big Ten were able to chisel Virginia out of the ACC, I would give it more credence. Until then, I don't see it happening.
