16 teams is whacked. This isn't even a conference anymore. Now, to get to the Rose Bowl you have to win your conference AND win a play in game with another conference.

This! If the season remains at twelve games then you must win two conferences and then you will make it to a decent bowl game. For the team that loses in the Big 10 championship game their regular season means little.

Worse yet we may have more situations like last seasons national championship game. How would you like to be an LSU? You beat your rival in the regular season but it earns you nothing because you happened to lose to them in a more "important" game.

Hello, Brian. This is Armstead Cook. He is a freshman linebacker. And because of you he can't play in the Big Ten anymore. Shake his hand, Brian.

Louisville will cheapen the brand.  It obviously doesn't belong with the 19 other Big Ten schools.  It would be a shame too after Purdue "took one for the team" and merged their football team with Indiana - Go Hoosier-Makers!

I believe Penn State just won the lottery.  Even with recruiting restrictions, they'll still be in the top 3 of that division every year.

I'm not against Maryland joining, and Rutgers is whatever, but I will secede from the A/C Delco/AIG Big 21 if Louisville is involved.

What Brian is not telling you is that the winner of the championship game between those two ten team divisions then has to play Purdue to go to the Rose Bowl. This was Danny Hope's plan all along!
