More BIG10 expansion info

Posted: Jan 25, 2013, 1:25 PM


Ohio State president E. Gordon Gee told the school’s Athletic Council in December that discussions about further expansion for the Big Ten conference are “ongoing.”

In November, the league announced the addition of Maryland from the Atlantic Coast Conference and Rutgers from the Big East. Nebraska joined the Big Ten for the 2011-12 school year after leaving the Big 12.

It doesn’t appear that the Big Ten is necessarily content to stay at 14 members. According to the minutes of the Dec. 5 Athletic Council meeting obtained by the Dispatch, Gee said “there has been ongoing discussion” about expansion and “believes there is movement towards three or four super conferences that are made up of 16-20 teams.”

When a student member of the Athletic Council asked Gee what direction the Big Ten might take, Gee said “there are opportunities to move further south in the (E)ast and possibly a couple of Midwest universities.”

He did not specify any potential targets but said they will make sure any new school has “like-minded academic integrity.”

The Athletic Council is expected to recommend formally today an increase in Ohio State football ticket prices from $70 to $79 with the addition of "premier" games that would cost significantly more. The board of trustees is expected to vote on the proposal late next week.

I remember everyone saying "When cigarettes reach $1.00 a pack, I am quiting." Few did so I guess $100.00 a game football game tickets will be here soon.

I really hope the ACC survives this or the best choice for me would be the SEC


I wonder if they still require AAU membership for the Big 10

If so, we don't have the worry about them.

I've heard UNC, UVA and GT in coonection w/Big 10

expansion. But UNC won't budge without Duke. So, I'm not surprised to hear the numbers all the way up to 20. My guess is if Delaney wants hia alma mater, UNC, that bad, he will take Duke along. If the Big 10 rakes in those 4, I think we can say without hesitation that the ACC is done. What would be our course of action if that happens? What should be our course of action, if that happens?
