    DEBuckeye It ain't easy, bein' cheesy.

    This is unbelievably stupid. The only benefit I can see is that, living in Delaware, I'll potentially have a chance or two to see the Buckeyes beat up on a bottom-feeder in my backyard.

    Loh getting pissed now with $50m exit fee questions.
     
  4. Buckeye86

    Buckeye86 I do not choose to discuss it

    So the Penn State cult has basically become this guy in the conference. :slappy:

    Way to ruin what is supposed to be a good day with your morose BS conspiracy theories you morons. Sit down and shut up back at table nine with the rest of the freaks and let the adults enjoy this event.

    I think people who are saying this is stupid needs to quit looking at this from a football standpoint

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    Exactly. Our last two adds have been blue-chip football schools. We don't need any more. What we do need is the BTN on every cable box from Virginia to Boston.

    Delany pretty much just said: The ACC is in Indiana, so we're going to the Mid Atlantic. Nebraska was a national brand, this is now about demographics and growing the footprint.
     
  10. Abenaki

    Abenaki Ambitious but rubbish.

    I'll agree with that. Since all this nonsense got started:

    Big Ten

    + Penn State
    + Nebraska
    + Maryland
    + Rutgers

    SEC

    + South Carolina
    + Arkansas
    + Texas A&M
    + Missouri

    Pac 12

    + Colorado
    + Utah

    Big 12

    - Colorado
    - Nebraska
    - Texas A&M
    - Missouri
    + TCU
    + West Virginia

    ACC

    + Florida State
    + Miami
    + Virginia Tech
    + Boston College
    + Pittsburgh
    + Syracuse
    - Maryland

    Big East

    + No one who matters
    - Everyone of consequence


    I'd say the Big Ten stacks up pretty good when you look at it as a whole.

    If the end game is ND and.... anyone, say Georgia Tech...

    That NYC market looks a lot more interesting. Atlanta is icing on the cake.

    ...

    Or... since apparently even texans don't watch the LHN.....
    ND and Tejas....

    There is no other way to look at it. Football is the only thing that matters.
