UNC and UVA would be great additions. Better than Maryland and Rutgers
Your average UofM fan and I have something in common, neither of us went to UofM. Though we do share One major difference, I got Accepted.
agree: POWERHOUSE academic institutions,and Ogie is right: the research $ brought in by these two schools is off the HOOK...much bigger picture than just sports here guys. Plus, they are mediocre at best in football: gives us a couple more possibilities at wins each yr....lol
you don't say... I had no idea...
It is. I was just there over Thanksgiving to watch the MSU vs Minny game.
The research money stays with the institution. Bowl money and TV money is split, now 14 ways instead of 12. Expansion is not a sure fire way to increase money, for the institutions. For the conference, yes since there will be more teams. However, it could backfire, like it has with the Big East, conference USA and the ACC.

It strengthens the CIC which helps funnel money to its own institutions.
