    How many of them do we have on BuckeyePlanet?

  2. If you see "The Dude" quoted around the internet on expansion, it is the same guy who wrote this article. I'm not sure what that means in terms of its accuracy, but the guy has a PURPLE Book Cat-type following.

    I agree with those that say there is little chance the B1G takes 17 unless the end game is 20. Further, I'm not sure how one conference at 20 constitutes an antitrust violation. And as hilarious as it would be for PSU to get booted, I see that is being really unlikely.

    It'll be a nice replacement for PSU when the government shuts that hell hole down.

    The first thing that comes to mind when I hear Rutgers is "bridge to the southwest".

    Common wisdom is that to completely tap the DC region you need 2 out of MD, VA & VPI.

    Even if that isn't true as stated before, Virginia brings 8 million people & even better recruiting than Maryland.

    Brilliant!!

    The big problem with those wealthy alums is their tendency to glorify the days when their ancestors had house slaves.

    Divisions don't matter in basketball, or any other sport not named football.

    Mardi Gras is a pagan tradition grafted onto Catholicism. Then again so is Christmas but I digress...

    Someday I'm going to have to take you to Carnivale in Rio. It makes New Orleans Mardi Gras look like the G rated parade at Disney World.

    The only reason I can see the Big Ten going to 17 is if ND or Texas agree to be 18.

    ORD_Buckeye Kiss the ring, Fredo.

    I think ND is a dead end. Sure, Delaney may try and give those [censored]s one last offer they can't refuse, but I don't see them considering it for one second, especially after their return to glory season this year.

    You think the blood was bad between the domers and the Big Ten before all this, what do you think it'll be like after the dust settles on the ACC's corpse....after Delaney looked at the domer's shiny new house and then promptly proceeded to burn the mother fucker to the ground.

    ND would join the WAC for football before they'll join the Big Ten, which would be just fine by me. It's where they belong.

    Speaking of which...the talk of Georgetown to the ACC in all sports except football doesn't really lend much strength to the argument that the conference is stable.

    I hadn't heard that. That's fantastic! :lol:

    Could the travishamockery that is the Big East be spiraling to its fiery crash?

    Aside from the main goal of destroying those who would deem it in their interest to bend over and let ND no-lube them, some of the collateral damage is fucking beautiful. So, so many sweet, sweet tears to enjoy.


    • Duke and Coach Krezoowski finding out where they really stand in the natural order of things.
    • The potatards having to go groveling back--Peterbilt hat in hand--to the MWC
    • And, will we ever see the likes of this [Mark May] again?

    Vegas is preschool [Mark May] compared to Nola.
    they couldn't even handle an NBA all star game when given the chance.

    1) they never should have left
    2) Utah shouldn't have left either, but who can blame them
    3) with those two schools, the MWC is a BCS conference.
    4) the MWC might STILL be a BCS conference when the dust settles.
    5) :lol:

    Hard to believe that the BB schools would walk away from the tournament credits that they would lose.

    I don't see Xavier, Georgetown or Marquette suffering for lack of a football program.
