Now that we know we won't see Penn St., Wiscy, and IU until 2013 at the earliest. But for one of them, we won't see them (unless it's in a championship game) unitl 2015 if the rotation established today continues then. I'd hate to not see a Penn State or Wisconsin the next 4 (!) years, but there's a chance that could happen with this setup.
If they go to a 9 game schedule in 2015, that alleviates some of this, but I'd rather see a 10 game Big 10 schedule starting in 2015 to preserve some of these games versus junk games like Delaware St, UMass, Bowling Green, etc.
Not at all in favor of expansion beyond 12 teams because of this.
