Rutgers and Maryland?
To paraphrase Brady Hoke, this is definitely not your father's Big Ten.
The old Western Conference is now moving into New York and Baltimore, with plans for a league office on the East Coast. And they probably aren't done.
Remember, during the height of conference realignment craziness, pundits predicting we're headed for four 16-team super-conferences? It looks like Big Ten president Jim Delany plans to be the first one to get there.
Let's get one thing out of the way. This move is strictly about money. This isn't about adding legendary programs like Penn State and Nebraska. It's about adding huge media markets.
The Big Ten can now go to cable companies in New York, Baltimore and Washington, D.C. and say, "we've got a home team in your area now, so let's talk about how much we're going to charge your customers to watch our TV network."
Will it work? It's a risky move.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan fans and players don't know if Denard Robinson will start at quarterback Saturday in Columbus, Ohio.
More important for the Wolverines, neither does anybody at Ohio State.
In his weekly news conference, Brady Hoke continued to play coy about his injured quarterback. Robinson played a "superback" role in Saturday's 42-17 win over Iowa...
It was a beat down. Not only was it a beat down in the Big House last Saturday, it was a beat down that was long, long, over due.
Iowa had beaten the Wolverines for three straight years. While that is an anomaly, it occurred. Once again, there are certain things that championship teams simply do not do.
Allowing teams to beat you consistently is one of those things. The Wolverines...
Urban Meyer has been away from the rivalry dubbed ''The Game'' for a long, long time.
He's glad to be back.
Now he's embracing his first Michigan-Ohio State game as a head coach.
Meyer, like Michigan's Brady Hoke, grew up in Ohio. Both were steeped in the legends and lore of Bo Schembechler and Woody Hayes, of playing for bragging rights in November...

Welcome to your one stop shop for hating Michigan. If you aren’t quick witted like us and struggle with the comebacks we have you covered. Of course no guide to hating Michigan would...
Well, he’s certainly well-insulated.
I’m going to be perfectly honest with you guys. This was far and away the easiest “10 Things” article that I’ve written all season. It’s That School Up North and there are literally hundreds of reasons to hate them. I have tried to avoid some of the obvious ones like the ugly women, goofy helmets, and inflated sense of self worth....
