it's about being in the footprint
Research at GT is hardly a reason to add them. Adding an afterthought athletic program in Georgia isn't going to make Georgia kids any more likely to play in the Big Ten, and even if it did, that's hardly a reason to add them either.
I'd like to add UVA and Maryland. Rutgers is underwhelming and GT makes no sense.
This. There is actual smoke regarding the Maryland move. Reporters are quoting people connected with the University (off the record of course).
The only real noise regarding Rutgers is 1) from their fans & 2) assumptions based on common wisdom.
Regarding the popularity of Rutgers...while it is nowhere near the interest in a place like Columbus, Rutgers games do dominate the 'most viewed' list when it comes to TV ratings in the area. Even leaving out the rest of NYC, New Jersey's population is pushing 9 Million.
its about being in the ATL markets
I would much prefer UVA to both Rutgers and GT, but I was responding to a post on Rutgers vs GT.
It is to the COP/C.
I didn't mean that has a reason to have Ga Tech instead of rutgers, just meant that's why they would go after them
GT just doesn't do it for me. I would much, much rather see UVA.
Pitt really doesn't bring anything to the table unless we were to let ped aggy leave, which we won't.
If i had the choice between Ga Tech and UVA then i'd rather have UVA, but if I had a choice between Ga Tech and Rutgers...give me Ga Tech
UNC > VA > UMD > RU =/= GT > BC

Sorry Rutgers that clinches it, you're out.
:slappy: holy mother of god
MD, UVA, and UNC would be a huge home run. If we got those three, I wouldn't even care if Rutgers was the fourth.
Not if the cable companies disagree. State X could have 100 million cable subscribers and it wouldn't mean jack if they don't demand to have the BTN on the basic tier to see a few State X University games a year.
