The Big Ten will get 35 armies plus two bonus armies each on Yakutsk and Northern Europe, and will promptly launch an offensive that will eliminate the Big East and garner control of North America with fortified defensive positions in Central America, Iceland, and Kamchatka. This will ensure a steady five armies per turn thereafter, with a whithered Big XII struggling to maintain control of S. America and a paltry 2 armies per turn.
Big Ten offers invites to Missouri, Nebraska, Notre Dame and Rutgers
If we can successfully get the entire Big East to join with us, followed by Nebraska, Syracuse, ND and Texas...11 + 8 + 4...23.
Or...if we get Nebraska, Syracuse, ND and Texas, we remove Northwestern, fuse with the Pac 10, and remove Syracuse...11 + 4 - 1 + 10 -1...23.
Or even worse...23!...
(I hope Colbert fans catch this...)

Is it purely coincidence that lately all of these rumors are coming out of the Missouri-area?
Think Mizzou might be a part of this to campaign for themselves?
