    One of the guys commenting on Frank the Tank's recent expansion discussion is claiming that the Big10 approached Missouri recently. He says that they declined. I don't know if I buy it, but I would personally get a hell of a kick out of stripping a team from the SEC just to show them who really runs the show.

    Was it Andy?

    If so...Andy is a Missouri fan and the closest thing they have to thaKid101.

    You could say the same about Ohio if we were all judged by the "wolverineMikes" of Ohio.

    Just sayin'.

    I'm pretty sure he was a Mizzou fan. The reaction of the regulars to his comment gave me the impression that he's not worth taking seriously. It's probably your boy Andy.

    The Shag's expansion thread is full of bull[Mark May] rumors like this. They take anything anybody says like it came from the lips of Jesus.

    Jack Tatum was from Passaic so, all it's other faults aside, Jersey has always been pretty OK in my book.

    I heard the B1G is in talks with Grinnell College so they can brag about having the highest average tempo and scoring in college basketball.

    I think that Delany's game plan is pretty clear-

    Take Maryland to stick a knife into ACC to start it's bleeding.

    Take Rutgers to kill the Big East as a football conference.

    Float rumors that Texas, Missouri, UNC, UVa, Georgia Tech, FSU, et al have been talking with the BIG about 15 and 16 to create panic that other teams need to make decisions soon about where they land AND and panic among other conferences to fill out their membership.

    Watch to see survives the coming fight between the ACC and the Big 12.

    If the ACC dies, try to pry Notre Dame into membership one last time.

    Depending on Notre Dames answer, pick the 1 or 2 teams that make the most sense.

    I have been busy and havenn't been following this as closely as I want. But am I reading this correctly: The Pedtards think this is somehow about them? :slappy:

    TheMightyQuinn "The future is bright at Ohio State."

    How about taking uva someone else that continues the same geographic footprint and change the name to the big northern conference (BNC)? I love the tradition of the big ten but as dylan said, the times they are a changing. We were the western conference first, so it's not like changing the name would be unprecedented.
