Apologies if already posted.

Per the Associated Press:

Joe Pa prefers a Big Ten expanded by two teams to the East, one to the West. He stresses that this is only his opinion, man, and no he hasn't seen the Big Lobrowski so why the hell are you asking about eagles?

Zombie/out of touch jokes aside, how influential do you imagine the old coach is? Is this actual news?

Equals...PSU in a division it will have a cakewalk through. Sure, Joe Pa wants Rutgers, UConn, or Pitt in there. I want Michigan in a division with Delaware State, Maine, Eastern Michigan, and Albion.

I think JoePa carries some weight here--PSU has been a tremendous addition and should be the standard for any further expansion.

But IMO, the Big Ten needs to hit a couple home runs here, because once they move, other dominoes will fall, the landscape will change dramatically, and things will be pretty much set in stone for a LONG time.

I'd hate to see the Big Ten expand with Rutgers, UConn, Pitt, Syracuse (YAWN), miss out on ND, and then watch the other conferences go out and REALLY realign with programs that people actually give a shit about.
