Just being reported that the Big Ten's in conversation with Maryland and Rutgers to join as their 13th and 14th members.

I've been saying that Maryland would be a good fit for a while now, but still think that Rutgers adds nothing other than a blind wish by the Big Ten to expand into the NYC market, and for obvious reasons that ain't going to do anything.

Looking east, I wish that the Big Ten had made a move on Maryland and Syracuse and then had picked up Mizzou and tried to grab Oklahoma out west (in the hope that they could be parted from Oklahoma State). That would've been my ideal 16-team Big Ten.

Regardless, hope we don't waste time on Notre Dame.
