Virginia to the B1G??

Rumor going around it could happen as early as tomorrow morning. I've said that I think UVA and UNC will be the next two teams in. I think they are both great fits. I hope we get them both. I know the SEC wants UNC as well. Our basketball conference would be unreal with UNC.

UVA=absolute top-shelf academics, meh athletics....

No way would UNC abandon Duke--together, they call the shots for that conference--their own little fiefdom is the ACC

I don't see Duke or UNC coming to the Big Ten. I would like to see the Big Ten pick up a baseball power or two. Virginia, in my opinion, makes more sense than the two most recent additions.

Agree 100%. UVA would be an excellent addition.

The following link says UNC and GT(both Purdue and Illinois pushing hard for that) would also be possibilities. SEC in talks with Duke and UNC. Makes me think UNC would go the SEC rout.

I was under the impression that UVA was dogshit academically...apparently not. They are, however, dogshit, when it comes to athletics though. Meh.

They (and Maryland) instantly turn the B1G into a lacrosse power conference

All say this again: the B1G AD's do not want a power football team. It hurts them to compete against a tough football power. They want an easy win against a conference foe, that is why we've added Rutgers, Maryland, and now possibly Virginia.

And I believe in Basketball (if NC joins), it's not as critical, because we can have upwards of 7-8-9 teams get into the NCAA tourney.

I'm sick of adding the crap teams. Maryland was a decent add I thought, though after watching their basketball team against UNC, they're an embarrassment. I'm hoping that with the money they'll get better, but we'll see. I gave the football team a pass because they lost something like 6 quarterbacks this year, including a LB I believe. They ended up starting a tight end, who hadn't play QB in a long while. So, they get a pass.

Rutgers literally was the worst addition in the world. And I'm sorry but I'd rather us not add Virginia. UNC and Georgia Tech would be better adds in my opinion. Though I really don't want GT either. I'd much rather have them then Rutgers though. Can we please just drop Rutgers?
