    I'm not going to disagree, I'm just going to point out we're in bizarro-world. Proof? Saying "Big Ten members Maryland and Rutgers ... " would've gotten you a room in the asylum just ten years ago.

          The geography does make sense.
          And the B1G would do whatever it takes to keep top money games continuing.

          Football schedule?
          - You play the three in your quadrangle (3 games)
          - You play one other quad on a rotating basis (4 games)
          - You play one "always" or "rival" game (1 game)

          Presto! Eight game conference schedule.

            • I can't find the quote, but the old late 1990s WAC commish has to be chuckling. He fell victim to ...

              The presidents of Air Force, BYU, Colorado State, Utah, and Wyoming met in 1998 at Denver International Airport and agreed to split off to form a new league. The breakaway group invited old-line WAC schools New Mexico and San Diego State and newcomer UNLV to join them in the new Mountain West Conference, which began competition in 1999.
              The quote went something like, 'The problem with a 16 team conference is that one morning you wake up and have two eight team conferences.'

                Every conference wants one private school. Why? Because FOIA laws don't apply as you have to protect the private school's privacy even in meeting with a dozen public schools.

                It's why Vandy is in the SEC and Northwestern in the B1G.

                The PAC12 has theirs (USC, Stanford) already, and I'd guess they don't want Baylor and TCU (too religiousy).

                  A school doesn't have an "ego," it has a ledger. Notre Dame's refusals are about dollars, nothing else.

                  What is it like living thinking everybody is NOT GIVING YOU THE RESPECT YOU DESERVE!!!?
                  Notre Dame is literally a big ego. Blame on the Irish Catholics and NBC. Hell they revel in it!

                  I have no inferiority complex for Notre Dame...its a great school. I respect all great schools. Their fans are a different story. ;^)

                  I was speaking of the Big Ten not me personally. Notre Dame hardly registers as a team to me because my team never plays them. (except in hockey) Unless you think I am in fact the Big Ten...and if that is the case I am being drastically underpaid. If Notre Dame joined tomorrow I wouldn't bat an eye. I am way too detached from sports these days to care about the ins and outs of this crap. Just tell me the game time and I will watch if I have nothing better to do.

                      Nope. You can't FOIA athletic conferences because they're private non-governnental entities themselves. The membership has nothing to do with it.

                      You can FOIA individual schools within the conference all you want if they're public institutions. But they are only obligated to disclose their own records.

                      • Northwestern is not in the Big Ten because of FOIA rules...that is ridiculous.

                          That was told to me by a former AAD (and JD) at a B1G school. I guess I got bad information from them. They claimed meeting minutes involving all participants got protected from FOIA because of the presence of a private; and, if the room had been all publics the minutes would be FOIA available. (I probably missed some legal nuance in what I was told.)

                              • In 2016, Iowa State athletic director Jamie Pollard made this prescient statement: "The Big 12 exists because we have Texas and Oklahoma in the room. If we take Texas and Oklahoma out of the room, we're the Mountain West Conference." ...

                                "When you're losing two of the most visible programs, the network has the right to come and say, 'We're going to reduce the rights by X.'" one longtime, high-profile administrator said.

                                That means the Big 12 deal could drop from $37 million in annual revenue to as low as $9 million per school.
