    Given that what would your divisions be? I would go with:

    MD, NC, UVA, PSU
    tOSU, Rutgers, IN, Purdue (gotta give tOSU the game in NYCish every other year)
    scUM, MSU, NU, Ill
    Wiscy, Nebraska, Iowa, Minn

    Hell with that. MLB has no answers for anyone.

    I like it, but realistically I see State Penn and RU swapping spots...

    Here again, the 'competitive balance' will be difficult to strike while keeping things geographically logical...

    Ah the 400 lb chick the Big East kicked out of bed only to come crawling back several years later after she lost 5 lbs.

    I was trying to do us and Ped State a favor. I'm sure Rutgers would prefer bus trips to flights to play the rest of their division. That pod would be a football joke and give whatever other pod they get matched up with a huge B1G championship advantage.

    Well, she did look 5 pounds less fat.

    As far as football goes, neither of these schools is much of a prize, but insofar as it ensures that PSU cannot flit around looking for some ACC super deal that cuts BigTen expansion eastward, this is a very good move.

    Land UNC and Virginia and Notre Dame and Duke are screwed. Do not think it happens but it would be brilliant.

    Rutgers Prez going over CIC benefits ... RU is the NIH/NIMH's repository for universal biological specimens ... cell, DNA, biosamples.

    Fuck. The dreaded GSKoD. That pretty much guarantees it won't happen. :(

    AD said they'll absolutely move games to MetLife or Yankee Stadium if they need to.

    Fucking awesome! :banger:

    I agree. Big East is perfect for PSU.
