When the Big 10 announced that they are expanding the conference sent shock waves around the country. Suddenly that's what everybody was talking about since Nothing is really going on right now in college football. Sure there are spring games and signing classes but that's a snack compared to the feast of a football season. Now everybody with an opinion is throwing out names and scenarios. From newspapers to blogs to espn and water coolers somebody that has idea is saying it. With one notable exception, the big 10. Outside of the mindless speak of the time frame and other non answers they have said zip which makes me think of the book 10 Little Indians.
Not going to give you a book review but will say if you love a good suspense mystery to read it. The whole book revolves around this one guy Mr. U.N. Owen or unknown. He says on a recording that everybody is going to die one by one because of their past crimes. Than sits back and lets the hysteria spew out. Notice a theme here?
The Big Ten conference is letting everybody do the work for them because you take away Ohio State and Penn State the conference was P.U. Losing in most head to head match ups with other conferences and Getting KILLED in the nc. What's more is the bottom feeders in each sport was not showing signs of being anything great anytime soon.
So if this is what they wanted to do then I say it was a damn smart move. They get national TV exposure and the talk of espn and other syndicated networks. Recruits are being exposed to the teams that they never would have given a second thought too. People are taking notice to a group that was starting to look like a has been to their hey day. The sad thing is that we have a long summer before we have anything else to really talk about.
