Exactly. When PSU joined the Big Ten they said we would have a huge advantage because we dominated the northeast in recruiting. What it actually did was open up the northeast to Michigan and Ohio State. So I guess following that logic, adding Rutgers and Maryland should be good for us.
lol of course Davey Jones would say that. Dude needs to be kicked from this entire state and go back to OSU to wipe Urbans ***.

That shouldnt be too hard. We are 35-1-1 against UMD all time. And 22-2 against RU.
I know times have changed, but UMD is prob. worse than they were before, and RU is still RU. RU will be the bigger challenge IMO.

No, but what we can sell to them is that WE have a chance to win the big ten every year (once this nonsense is over.) Rutgers was able to sell others the last few years that they could win the Big East and get a BCS bid.....simply because the conference sucked. So kids could look at that as an easy way to win a conference title and go to a BCS game.
Now, sure, a Rutgers can sell them on being in the big ten...but most kids are going to realize it will be the lower half of the big ten with little shot at ever winning a b10 title, at least consistently.
Maybe he is doing it to hurt the ACC and therfore hurting ND because of the stiff arm they have been giving the BIG. This may force them to reconsider the big as #15 or 16
I think it should help RU out more than MD. MD was in a decent league and they just couldn't attract the talent. I know for a fact that NJ kids didn't want to be stuck playing in the Big East.
With that being said, I think you will see just as much or if not more pressure from the Big Ten teams coming into NJ and MD to pick up some recruits. In the end, it will be harder for us, but it looks like we are finally trying recruit more national prospects, so it will be interesting to see how much this affects us.
That rivalry was dead after the mid 80's when Pitt became a non factor.
two ways to look at it.........head to head we have more to offer Rutgers and now have more exposure in New Jersey along with playing more schools close by. I think its a win-win for us.
