    They have been consistently right, so I hope we have a seat at the SEC or Big 10 table, because being left behind in the weakened ACC is a nightmare.

    Probably the ACC getting ready to do something. Easy for that guy to lead that MD was going. He was fed the info. Doubt he has sources at UVa and UNC. Let's forget UNC and Uva running from a league that they had power in to one where the WILL NOT. This could be a play on NOtre Dame.

    The SEC has no exit fee! It would not cost Missouri or anyone a cent to leave. However if Missouri leaves the SEC I would be shocked far more by that than anything that will happen in the ACC. It is not happening!

It looks like the Big Ten ultimately wants to expand to either 18 or 20 members which could put several schools into play. If I had to take a guess then I would say Duke, Syracuse, Clemson, or FSU seem to be the most logical for the 18th, 19th, and 20th spots.
    How would 20 teams in a conference work? You have 9 games against your own division and then your permanent rival and you never play the other teams?

    Or the 20-team conference could split into two conferences, each calling themselves the "Big 10".

    Probably some high ranking Tech researcher using the Tech jet to get to Chicago and then taking a direct flight to Shanghai.

    Somebody tell me what is in it for these schools? Maryland seemed to be a unique case where everyone in power was new in their jobs and had ties to the midwest/Big 10. Also, their short term financials were in dire straights where they were willing to take a short term boost in revenue even if it meant losing money later on. None of these things apply to the 3 schools above (except maybe UNC but Thorp will probably still be there through any expansion talk.)

    They didn't lose anything. They just failed to convince a judge to throw out the case.

    the B1G needs 1 more team to sponsor the sport with an NCAA bid from what i understand. that said, adding uva should solve that, so i don't know why Hopkins would be on the list unless the B1G just wants Hopkins in the CIC...
