How do these schools, that have zero football tradition or historical success, add value to a football conference that prides itself on tradition?

New thread for your own apparent confusion. Screams "look at me".
Tradition? How about adding the first school to play a college football game to the conference. There's some tradition for you.
How about the tradition of starting a new thread to state your opinion about something that everyone esle is talking about in another thread?
It is a tradition that someone will do this.
Yes, 40 miles by road, 3 hours if you try and drive it to midtown Manhattan

And may as well be on Mars for what the people in Manhattan know or think about Rutgers
Big 10 fan for 60+ years,but I know they could care less about my opinion. Just want to vent. I loved additon of Penn State and Nebraska. WTF RUTGERS? People on East coast will still not give s%@t about Big Ten. In case AD's haven't noticed Expansion can DILUTE .
I like the move if we can get Maryland and Rutgers. Two reason first recruiting. New Jersey, New York, and Maryland are hot bed for recruiting. Meyer taped into these states for talent. Haden brothers are from Md, Bosco is in Nj along with Dematha is MD. Second is money we have alot of new viewers to the BIG Ten and should help out with revenue alot. We just expanded to the east coast. Kids in MD, NY,and NJ kids will grow up tOSU fans because we will win alot and big. The teams aren't the best but money makes the world go round.
Coyoungin on twitter. Circular square movement.
Steve, i think generalizing the "people in Manhattan" is kind of silly. Do you have any idea how many big ten alum live in Manhattan and flood the Penn State, Ohio State, Mich State, Indiana, Wisc, Mich bars that are all over the city? You'd be surprised at how many huge college football fans are in Manhattan. I understand a lot of the country looks at NYC from afar and has no clue what actually goes on there... they picture the entire place as wall street and times square. There are lots of Rutgers grads and Rutgers fans in NJ and the city. With big time games now coming to their stadium, there will be sell outs all year in a nice brand new stadium. they will be good soon.
This is a basketball conference.
The B1G does not consider itself as primarily a football conference. It considers its members to be outstanding academic institutions that also play football. Had you actually graduated from one of these institutions, you would have known that Rutgers is in New Jersey. You would have also known that Rutgers is the largest college football draw in NYC.
