Re: Big 10 further expansion
wow! -- the way it looks after the power 5 get through adding to each conference they will have the top 100 teams all locked up -- and then where does the other d-1 teams go? -- all the $$$$$ will be wrapped up in he big 5 -- mid majors will have to step down to d-2 -- you can bet that men volleyball will become a big 5 sport -- they will control all the major sports -- big $$$$$ will be split out somehow to all the big 5 schools -- little revenue will be available to mid majors ---
For the past week or so, the Big Ten commissioner, Kevin Warren, has been steadfast that the conference is not looking to further expand after already poaching both USC and UCLA from the Pac-12 earlier this summer. However, there is a new report out there from CBS Sports’ Dennis Dodd that shows that the Big Ten could be after another group of Pac-12 teams in the future.
“According to my reporting, the Big Ten is now targeting Cal, Stanford, Oregon, and Washington in a further expansion that would bring the league to 20 teams at least,” Dodd said. “There is another report out there that the Big Ten is also looking at Florida State and Miami, and at that point would be a monopoly of college athletics at the top of the food chain.”
