I’m kind of hoping the B1G goes to 18 or 20 now.  At first I was against going beyond 16 team’s (just felt like anything more than 16 was too much, and I wanted a 4 division pod system) but now I’m hoping they can just add 4 or 6 more ACC team’s and move UM,MSU and OSU, to the West.  At 16 with UM and OSU in the East it’s going to be very unbalanced.

re: Gene The Weak

"...he's managed to dodge any significant NCAA investigation into what sure looks like fairly massive and widespread extra benefits being given to his players..."

Very interesting. Your indications of this would be, what, exactly? If "massive" multiple sources would be all over it. If "widespread" even the Chengelis's of the halt, lame and lazy sporting press would be on it. I don't see that happening.

Seriously, I'd like to know what these "massive and widspread" extra benefits are and to whom?

Enlighten me.

Cars to both players and players families for starters. "Jobs" up here in Cleveland that they never showed up for. Tattoos. Lots and lots of free tatoos. Golden handshakes between Youngstown boosters and players. Access to team facilities and game day preferred seats to friends and family of prized recruits like Pryor.

You need more?

Too bad this new realignment we are speculating on will never see the light of day.  

We will be at 16/18/20 teams by the time this would have gone into effect.  Then the deck gets shuffled all over again.

There is some serious competitve imbalance with us, PSU and Ohio in one division. PSU will be back and it looks like Meyer will have Ohio being a big time power. Sparty could run a program that's a significant step below ours and be in the title game as often or more.
