"A source told ESPN that the Big Ten has been itchy about further expansion since Notre Dame made its official move to the ACC two months ago in all sports other than football. The source said the Big Ten can justify Maryland and then possibly Rutgers since they are all contiguous states to the Big Ten footprint." This is certainly bad news for boise state and the Big east, but thats not all, Uconn is expected to replace maryland in the acc. Louisville and Cincinnati have openly said they want in the big 12. Im sorry but without those teams the big east is nothing. Boise State and SDSU should just rejoin the mountain west before all hell breaks loose. If Boise and san diego state rejoin the mountain west, i could see BYU possibly rejoining along with fellow big east west members smu and houston.
