Found January 25, 2013 on Waiting For Next Year:
The Columbus Dispatch is reporting Ohio State president E. Gordon Gee told the university’s Athletic Council last December that talks regarding the Big Ten’s further expansion were “ongoing”. On the heels of adding Nebraska, Maryland, and Rutgers it appears the Big Ten is not quite done expanding. Gee “believes there is movement towards three or four super conferences that are made up of 16-20 teams.” After Maryland and Rutgers officially become members the conference will be at 14 teams. The Ohio State president did not name specific schools that the conference was targeting, but said “there are opportunities to move further south in the East and possibly a couple of Midwest universities.”
