I hate it when guys who screwed me in my fantasy league are rewarded in real life.

Being a B1G fan I'm more than slightly amused at how many of the SEC'er comments above keep mentioning how the SEC is only going to consider AAU schools in it's next expansion.  Even if it were true, which I highly doubt, don't think for even a millisecond that the B1G won't get any AAU school it wants.  The B1G is the leading conference for research dollars and AAU membership, and any school with half a brain would want to be a member in the B1G over the SEC.   Sorry, but your football dominance (at this time in history) means nothing compared to the billions of dollars in research grants that can be obtained by being a member of the B1G.  Presidents make this decision, not fans or ADs.  Best get your minds wrapped around that concept.

 

UNC and UVA...(the two biggest prizes in the expansion wars right now)...will go B1G if they decide to go any where.   This is undisputed fact.  Any other AAU school the B1G wants, it will get, all others conferences will wait for leftovers...including the SEC.  Don't even attempt to challenge this statement, you will only make yourself look silly. 

 

Regarding Notre Dame...again, those of you stating they will go Big12 over the B1G are truly insane.  There are NO traditional ND rivals in the Big12.  Plus, the geography of the Big12 is not where the majority of ND alumni reside.  Basically, you have very little value to them other than a place to stick their olympic sports once the ACC collapses.  Again, indisputable fact.

 

So, to recap, the B1G will dominate expansion going forward....all others will sit and wait for the leftovers.  Only good news for you is that quality schools like VT, FSU, CLEM and PITT will not be considered by the B1G...at least if it decides to not go beyond 20 schools.

 

UVA, UNC, GT, Mizzu, ND and BC will be the next six for the B1G, with the last two not coming on board (as a package deal) for several years due to ND holding out as an IND.

 @mll "Big 10 is trapped with only Wake and Boston College left."   Sounds reminiscent of comments uttered by Napoleon prior to Waterloo.
