Just a quick update to yesterday's story -- Maryland did indeed agree to join the Big Ten starting in 2014 and Rutgers will follow suit today.
Rutgers can start on expanding football seating and building a new basketball arena. In the Big Ten you're only allowed to have a dump basketball arena if your name is Minnesota. In fact the great former head coach at Michigan State Jud Heathcote was asked how to improve Williams Arena in Minneapolis and his words were "Burn it to the ground."
Don't be THAT school Rutgers, get digging.
