Big Ten Article on Big 10 adding Maryland and Rutgers

Pretty interesting reading. I happen to think that the author makes a lot of sense.

A few corrections need to be made here; Number One the reason the Big XII has had issues is all on Texass being greedy and having a commissioner who was basically Dodds's whore. Members in the Big Ten {14} are all equal.

Two; even with the addition of Miami, VT {et al} the ACC is always gonna be a basketball conference, just like the Big East. Football is secondary.

Chef K, you are a Nebraska guy. What's your take on the addition of Maryland and Rutgers?

Honestly, I like it only for the reason that I'll be able to see the Huskers play within an hour & a half from where I live.

This was a revenue deal, though I think the next round the Big Ten will be looking to add quality. {in terms of football pedigree}

Seems to me that quality of the team's play on the field should always be first and foremost.

I agree with that. Rutgers isn't a bad program, Maryland could be an up & coming power. Maryland will be a great addition for Big Ten basketball for the immediate future.

Chef, we are going to have to agree to disagree about the merits of the Rutgers and Maryland programs.

Before yesterday Rutgers was ranked I believe, so it's not like they're Duke or anything like that. Maryland I think could be a sleeping giant, They are following a similar plan to what Oregon has done.
