Really,,,, Maryland and Rutgers? WHY? $, that's why.

What do they bring to the Big Ten that we don't have?

They bring low level mediocrity, and we have plenty of that already. This is all to set up the eventual 16 team super conference. Maybe we can get Slippery Rock and Shippensberg St. Damn, this sucks.

Who is going to pay $50-80 face value to watch Maryland, Rutgers, Indiana, Illinois, Purdue and Minnesota home games?

I don't like it because CF is regional and B1G means big state schools in the mid-west.....but....

.....If Rutgers was in the B1G already, they would be playing in the Rose bowl this year...Just sayin.... These two probably bring up the quality of play.

Biology. Thanks for the kudos, but it turns out that college is actually pretty easy when you aren't skipping class to ride to NY. Who knew?

I am hearing Spurrier's name being batted around here now. Y'all don't even know how much I'd love that.

UT currently holds the title for "most delusional fanbase"


Spurrier to UT? Maybe UGA next? no way.

Yep. My first degree was tough but then again, it was one of the hardest majors on campus. And then I had players like Bo Jackson, Charles Barkley and Chuck Person to distract me.

The second degree was much easier. I was taking fulltime care of K7kid starting when she was only 8 weeks old while going to school at night full time for a masters. I can count the number of classes that weren't "A" on one hand.

Amazing!

Keep up the good work.

Those same names are going around at every open HC spot.

Hey, now I remember, he did go after you! Congrats on your school success, you must be one smart woman! And, you love sports!

You wouldn't happen to have a single older sister that might like to live down by the river would you?

Funny how much easier it is if you go to class every day, and read the book.

I'm finding that out this semester.

Bubwheat is not too busy currently. The bridge would probably be safe while he is away. He could not do any worse than the last couple of HC's the Vols had and probably better. He does not have star status,other than here, so they could pay the players more.

I think Bubwheat for UTenn makes a lot of sense. Major plus, he already irritates SEC people, so it would make for instant major rivalries.

I did look it up.

"Knoxville radio shows quickly hit the airwaves after the announcement that UT was talking to Bob Stoops, currently coach at Oklahoma, Jim Mora Jr., coach at UCLA, which on Saturday blasted Southern Cal and former Vol coach Lane Kiffin, and ESPN football analyst and former NFL coach Jon Gruden."

like I said though, these are rumors. as such, someone could throw out the name John Madden if desired.

I was disputing the likelihood of success. I believe you as to the attempt.

I stand by Tennessee being delusional.
