The league's athletic directors and football coaches met Monday in Park Ridge, Ill., and all future scheduling discussions will focus on models featuring nine or 10 league games, Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany told ESPN.com. There was "no support" for staying with the current eight-game league schedule model.
Delany said the new schedule format likely would go into place for the 2016 or 2017 season. Maryland and Rutgers will join the Big Ten for the 2014 season.
Big Ten coaches and athletic directors have formally requested that the NCAA put the brakes on new proposed recruiting rules that would allow unlimited contact and mailings to high school prospects.
This is not a shock... its all about money and playing more conference games means more money for the conference.
You may not agree with all the moves the B1G makes but one thing is for sure... we are going to be the richest conference in the country BY FAR!
