Agreed Trev, I liked it pre-PSU. Wanna go back.
Adding MD and Rutgers is like adding Laverne and Shirley to the cast of Charlie's Angels.

It works for me. If only for the fact the Spartans might play an away game that'll be a home game for me.
Yea, agree, the modern setup sucks. Probably won't get any better any time soon.
Wait until they eliminate kickoffs... arrrrrgggghhhhh
Nίκη για MSU
I hate that the title game is on a Monday. Has anyone ever heard of college football Saturday?
Any system which allows Northern Illinois to be playing in the Orange Bowl is messed up.
I think expansion has made the B1G and MSU more competitive nationally in football and basketball and there is not even a question.
The B1G was slowed down in past because it carries so many more sports than the other conferences they didnt have the resources to compete. The BTN has changed all of that. Now even with all of the sports the B1G has enough revenue to compete with all of these other conferences with facilities and coaches.
Look at how the B1G is performing in baketball and be coaches it has.
Also I know everyone says the B1G is down in football but they are competing nationally and with tOSU getting off of probation they are getting stronger as well. Purdue is the only B1G team which got blown out in this years bowl games. They are getting closer.
I gotta agree with you there Barnes. Nothing is worse than giving up something really good just for some more $$.

I don't know, traditional Big Ten was cool, but I like MSU being a part of the conference too.
I tend to see B1G expansion as an overall necessary and therefore good thing, but I definitely start to get nostalgic this time of year. Hell, just the names of the bowl games these days just completely suck. The Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl?
I'm with you, Trev. The bowl game names suck canal water!
I miss the old B1G as well. I am 24 so the most recent "old" B1G, you smartasses. When I think of "Big 10", Nebraska still doesn't pop into my mind right away but I'll get used to that.
One weird B1G memory I have is my freshman year at MSU(2007), walking into a gym of the IM West building to do some workouts. I remember all the B1G flags hanging up. I had a weird moment of school/B1G spirit and felt really excited to be a college kid... a spartan.
Man, wish i could just do college again. That place was awesome.
I remember the good old days when only one B10 team would play in a Bowl Game each year.
I agree with this. I'm slowly losing interest in basketball: the one-and-dones, the prima-donnas, the fact one guy can affect a whole team (football is much more team oriented), 3 point jack-it-up teams, etc.
Now, they're screwing football up, too. The thought of those two loser teams coming into the B1G is disgusting. I love the fact NU had a great year--a smaller conference school that beat the odds. I have zero interest in anything Maryland or Rutgers can ever accomplish in the conference. Zero.
I vote to boot State Penn and the Huskers!
If it meant some of these bowls died... I'm all for it!
Boom goes the dynamite

Because there is absolutely no way they should be allowed to earn their way into the good games!
