You know, I do my best to ignore this stuff, but it's gotten to the point where I think it's serious.
What the hell is going on?
You've got the Big 12 threatening Nebraska and Missouri, you've got Texas threatening to go West and take the entire Big 12 south with them, and you've got the Big 10 talking to Austin and Storrs and just about every frakin' school in between. I just read a blog on IndyStar (from a J&C writer, natch) saying the only way to stop Armageddon is if ND would just wise up and join the Big 10, before the Pac 10, Big 10, and ACC go hexadecimal and the Irish don't have a Big East to play in anymore.
I guess I should have seen this coming when freaking Boston College went to the ACC. And don't get me started about the Big Ten Network. I don't care how much money it makes, the things a joke. Does anybody watch this? Anybody? No wonder it makes so much money, all it is is a bunch of junk shot by the school's Comm kids for free, and then they charge us an arm and a leg for it. Aaarghhh!
Anyway, I digress. Thoughts?
 I just realized, with my hexadecimal comment, the Big 10 has to expand. It's the only way to make their moniker fit. Right now they're the Big 0xB. (Can you tell I'm studying IPv6?)
