I'm curious to see if another school doesn't try and steal Rutgers spot. I'm assuming most schools were caught off guard by this move and if a better school than Rutgers came along and asked for the 14th spot. I wonder if the B1G would listen?
Dominate The State
Rather have Virginia than Maryland...At least Virginia is not so color blind to put on those horrid uniforms.

Thought the same thing. MD is the #1, Rutgers obviously the team to #14. Would love to be fielding the calls Delaney is right now.
Before Nebraska joined the B1G I was able to add Dish Network's sports package that included BTN for $5 a month. It comes with a ton of other sports channels, although many were regional.
I also wonder if despite everything that's happened that this wasn't a move by the B1G to appease PSU. I know it was for a lot of other reasons but PSU was the school pushing for more eastern schools and I find it interesting that the B1G added 2 schools basically in PSU's backyard.
You wish. Delany is a POS
Yep, instead of assisting PSU at their hour of need he piled on like everyone else. In the mean time, when OSU came crying he stepped in on their behalf.
October 12, 2013. PSU 43 - UM 40 (4 OT). Unfortunately this fan wasn't around long enough to see it!
The only time Delaney thought about PSU during this whole expansion thing was when he thought that OSU and Michigan could now dip into the East Coast to recruit players who would normally go to PSU.
I love all of this Delaney hate.
Man has made some very good $ decisions..
Which is why my post was dripping with sarcasm.
For his darling two in the B1G, UM and OSU.
Delaney is probably #5 on my SH*T list behind Sandusky, Emmert, Erickson and Freeh in that order. Collectively the BoT is right up there tied for #5.
And every other team in the conference. You know, with that whole BTN thing.
I picked up on your 'intent" ...
There are things Delaney could've done differently on some things, but as far as negotiating contracts and expanding the BIG and bringing money to the schools, he's been awesome.
The biggest thing I like about him and the previous regime as well, they didn't accept Notre Dame's request to join the BIG but keep football out. I love the fact the BIG has said it's all or nothing. The ACC caved, and I'm not sure why any conference cares if Notre Dame is in the conference for all other sports, but not the only sport Notre Dame fans tune in for......
I imagine the financials worked out.
Not the next 4 years. Piling on with everyone else taking $13 million away on top of the NCAA $60 million fine. It ain't right buddy.
Biggest $ decision he made was bringing in PSU, the wealthiest sports team in the B1G. Only Texas and ND are richer.
Delaney wants us for our $ but he's not interested in our 2 cents.
I'm not gonna even bite, i'll end up getting yelled at, I'll just say the biggest $ decision that was EVER made was the Big Ten Network...period.
You're a fan MT, but when was the last time you set foot on campus, for anything?
There is definitely an air of fight here in Happy Valley. Not only did the NCAA sanction us for not violating any single NCAA rule, but they gave us worse than the death penalty. All based on the OPINION of Louis Freeh, who btw reached that opinion based on paltry factual (LOL) evidence (another LOL).
The BoT threw Joe under the bus to distract attention away from their own culpability.
Come on down to the Fyrst. I'll buy you some beers and we can discuss it.
I agree. But that wouldn't have garnished nearly the gem that it turned out to be without PSU bringing in a HUGE TV market from the East. So the precursor to the golden egg was the goose that that is PSU. Delaney couldn't have done it without us.
No, he isn't allowing PSU to dip into the pot of money that they get from Bowls. PSU gets TV money which is fine. OSU had to pay back theirs from the year they shouldn't have gone. Though I do believe they get cash for this year. Either way, can't be mad at that sanction, we're suspended from bowls, we should be suspended from the money. Especially when considering the PR aspect. I have more of a bone to pick from the NCAA.
Kirk it is better if I never meet you. I don't enjoy laughing in someone's face.
My beef lies with the NCAA, but that doesn't even matter now, they don't need to change their decision for anyone.
I thought the birth of BTN was ESPN low balling Delany on a offer.
