I'm all in favor of keeping dangerous weapons out of the hands of fools. Let's start with typewriters.

If you scan Playmea's link to the USA Today database on college athletics finances you'll see that most of the B1G schools get no subsidy (tOSU, M) or very little (less than 10%) whereas most of the others (apart from a few other big brands like TX) get major subsidies, some as much as 60%+. This is the fault line in D-I which will drive reform of the bowls, result in a true playoff, the ultimately the big conferences running the entire show, not the NCAA.
In honor of Delany setting the proverbial chessboard in motion once more, I thought I'd bump this thread back up to page 1.
I think that the assertion that Delany is WAAY ahead of the game when it comes to expansion is pretty accurate. Maryland and Rutgers may not look all that sexy, but dress them up with millions more in TV revenue and they might just look better. Plus, these two chips could very well land a few more prize schools in the B1G for slots 15 and 16. I'm guessing that Delany has planned waaay ahead on this one and knows what his next moves are based on what he projects other conferences will do in response.
