Speaking of Delany, the man who touched off last year's round of realignment has been awfully quiet this time. There is a good reason for that. The Big Ten doesn't need to expand unless it can add a school or schools that bring significant value. With its television network thriving and its primary media rights deal due for renegotiation in four years, the Big Ten members might lose money on the deal unless they brought in a heavyweight such as Notre Dame.
Why would the Big 10 want to expand???? No reason whatsoever.
More teams does not mean more TV money.
Most people dont understand that.
It depends on what you believe. If you believe 4 superconferences are capable of making the money some think it is capable of then yes 4 more schools could end up making more money for every team in the conference. If you don't believe that than stick with 12.
