This is somewhat directed at FormerlyAnonymous: What kind of ramifications do expansions have on non-revenue sports? I'm thinking about baseball and the future of the conference, and I have to believe that Nebraska would help out baseball. Would Wisconsin finally field a varsity team? What about if we head east and pick up Syracuse, would Michigan push lacrosse into the varsity status? Would we want all sports that currently play in a non-Big-Ten league (hockey, lacrosse, etc.) to build a conference, even if it means fielding teams that aren't necessarily competitive at first? Discuss.
“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”
