From the on-going press conference regarding Rutgers to the B1G
Joe Rexrode @joerexrode
Millions roll eyes. RT @StevePoliti Jim Delany said TV was "not a determinative factor" in bringing Rutgers to Big Ten. So there's that.

"Well my dog is named Rex and Rutgers starts with an R, so I just went with it."
They made us an offer we couldn't refuse ?
"Maryland is great at football, and Rutgers is great at basketball... It made perfect sense"
JD got caught in an Atlantic City hotel room with a bag of coke and some Rutgers coeds?
We needed a R school and Rice turned us down.
My hatred for that man grows by the hour.
"We needed more red in the conference"
Delany doesn't need to outsmart us, just those folks in SEC country.
Everytime I see Delany I wish that SAW guy was real and Delany was the victim.
So then, what exactly was the determinant factor?
Hell, why not just own it? Give a fuck yeah, we got the NYC and DC markets!!! Jimmy D is making it rain on bitches of the B1G! Hey ND, suck on deez (gives X motion to the crotch).
Delany hoping to cash in on all that Hurricane Sandy relief aid pouring into Jersey.

Too many B1G fans are complaining about quality here when in actuality, Rutgers is in the upper half of this now 14 team conference in terms of football. Why are people bitching so much about a team that will bring huge revenue to all B1G schools due to the revenue sharing in the B1G and will compete right away. As MSU fans, can we confidently say that Rutgers wouldn't give us a run for out money this season?
In football the schools in order are:
What's wrong with adding an above average team in football and a pretty good basketball team, while gaining tons of tv money.
It's a pity acceptance. Delany felt bad for Jersey after the hurricane.
Delany threw his boy Pernetti a bone. This was a buddy buddy addition that just so happens to bring in millions of TV sets along with it. Makes me sick. Rutgers will reallyyyyy struggle. This isn't Temple, USF and UConn out here. They're Northwestern with a little less academics. Maryland will have more success than them.
Rutgers and Maryland didn't earn this. We did. Nebraska and Penn State did.

Whenever I see Delaney I think of this guy....and the Fucking Catalina Wine Mixer.
They play in the fucking Big East.
Delany's hoping for one of those bitchin' personalized fleece jackets from Gov. Christie as a token of thanks.
Because Rutgers beat George Perles and JLS. Bwahahaha.

Louisville, Rutgers, Cincinnati, could all beat more than half of the Big Ten's cesspool of lower level teams.
You are the reason the SEC is put on such a pedestal. By saying things like "It's the Big East" and making generalizations. The same happens with the SEC. People go "It's the SEC, they're just better" and voila Florida is #4
Are you kidding me? Every single one of us would wager a house on our defense keeping it close for 60 minutes, then losing by 3.
Could they? After taking a week-in, week-out physical pounding? Highly doubt it. Ask West Virginia how the transition to big boy football has worked out for them.
Rutgers lost to Kent State, bro. And the SEC isn't better? You're high to think that there best teams are equal to the B1G's best teams. Last year only one B1G team beat an SEC team in the bowl games and that took overtime and the year before that it was a team that cheated. During this season the B1G is 3-0 against the Big East.
When you have no offense, every game is a close game.
it's like the change bank. we make it up on volume.
