The problem with that analysis is that Silver is counting fans and not cable boxes.
Penn is to Penn State as skinny jeans are to Brady Hoke.
The latter fucking wishes.
I highly doubt this is true, it was enough of a push just to get them to carry it in the original Big Ten states originally..the cable companies wouldn't have signed away their rights for further negotiation, they too have people employed smart enough to realize that further expansion was a very real possibility.
Rutgers has a campus about the size of Notre Dame in greater Philly, i.e. Camden NJ.
Those smart people at the cable co would also recognize you lock-in the rate while the product is untested and least desirable rather than renegotiate after it has established a proven successful business model and expanded its viewer draw across the nation, especially into the mid-atlantic/northeast corridor.
Should be interesting to see how the Big Ten scheduling comes down, especially since Big Ten schedules had already been set through 2016...
Here are the Bucks schedules for those years for anyone who was wondering...
@ Penn State
@ Virginia Tech
@ Penn State
Now wait just a second folks.
it was a trial balloon thrown up to gauge response.....
I was rather shocked at how little negativity I saw
If we our division gets MD and Rutgers, they should change the names to the Blue and Red divisions.
Red would then have at least 5 teams with red as a primary color - OSU, Wiscy, Rutgers, Maryland and Indiana.
Blue would have Illinois, Michigan, Northwestern with blue colors - far less, but still plausible (green and yellow would also play a major part of other teams).
Would make a lot more sense than Legends and Leaders.
I don't care about the Illibuck, and tOSU would get to play @ two recruiting goldmines every other year? Please?
There's gonna be four 'divisions' after the dust has settled this round, imho...
It depends if you think this round is over. I don't see how you go to 4 divisions with 14 teams.
That's why it sounds great to us and Wiscy. Probably not so much for scUM, MSU, and Nebraska. It will be logistically insane if they break up Rutgers and MD in separate divisions. Time to make the move to east/west.
Right you are. I was implying that it's my guess that we're going to 16 this round...
Really hoping it's UVA and UNC. I think the B1G would be complete if that comes to pass...
Separate names with a comma.
