08:42 PM ET 11.17 | Sounds like a crazy message board rumor, but multiple big, national outlets are reporting it, along with those close to the Terps. If it goes down, as it might very soon, the Big East and ACC would each lose a charter member, while the Big Ten would swell to 14 teams.

B1G had a deficit of buttugly unis, therefore the Maryland grab.

Not sure if these schools would be quality add-ons for the B1G. Maybe for the TV markets?

Yeah, pretty much.

Why doesn't Rutgers rename itself to the University of New Jersey?

I belive the official name of the school is:

Rutgers, The State University of new jersey

I wonder how Mizzu feels about this? They got voted down, now the B10 is looking at adding Maryland. That's kinda funny right there!

Maryland is a stronger academic institution. If other conferences had stayed at 12 schools, I think the B1G would have stayed put.

The outlier in the B1G expansion is Nebraska; not an AAU member, not strong academics and not a large population center.

I majored in agriculture and as far as I know The Big Red can hold it's own with any land grant school in the B1G 10 Conference. All the schools in the conference are excellent but let's be real. If you have skills with a basketball or a football and are an average student, excluding Northwestern, the other schools can get you in.

They are a donor school. All of their graduates go elsewhere for work. Have to show their arrogance, so they must be Big 14 material.
