They dont fit in any way for the big ten. This expansion of conferences is ridiculous. You can look forward to playing against penn St..as its not only the skill of the coach..but Ped St will be behind the 8 ball or a few more years. As an example..the Big Ten was after Nebraska for 20 years before they finally had enough of the Big12 insanity and sack licking of Texas..they fit. Same type of research and development school..they just fit. The arrival of Rutgers and Maryland are not very favorable. Its just a money move and exposure of the Big10 network in the Nj/Ny area.
Thanks for noticing..bt yes, Ped st..I'll offend till the day I die. Im all for them to be eliminated as a national School, let alone a football program. Questions? You can prolly can figure it out.
As for Rutgers..I said very clearly I believe them to be a fine academic institution. In fact they rank about 70, one of the jewels of that conference. Rutgers doesnt fit, for whatever reason..perhaps it's their east coast local, and has been said, they're going to have an incredibly tough time athletically. It doesnt help the conference become a stronger athletic competitor at all. This was done purely for profit. Dumb.
