Here's an Idea For the Big Ten: Go Fuck Yourselves
Could you imagine the national outcry if the Big East openly courted a Big Ten power solely for financial purposes? The sentiment in the main stream media would either be one of outrage or extreme cynicism. Now I admit, I have not been following this whole fiasco very closely and basically all I know is that the Big East hired former NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue to try to prevent this from happening. Why would the Big Ten rather expand east than try to annex a team from the SEC or Big XII so they could take advantage of the fertile recruiting ground of the south? Even if they coax Rutgers into joining it doesn't mean that they'll all the sudden get huge ratings in the New York market. I don't see how Rutgers would get nearly enough attention for the Big Ten's liking considering they'd have to compete with The Yankees, Mets, Giants, Jets, Rangers, Knicks and Notre Dame for attention in the area (a losing battle.) The two schools that make BY FAR the most sense for a migration to the Big Ten are Pitt and West Virginia, programs that are strong in both football and basketball, have national name recognition, devoted fanbases and make more sense geographically than Syracuse or Rutgers. Add to the fact that Pitt-Penn State used to be a pretty huge rivalry and it would make sense. So good luck courting any team within 1,000 miles of you Jim Delany, but I'd rather see you go fuck yourself.
