NCAA: Sources: Big Ten may become Big 14

December 18, 2009

So if the Big Ten expands, what would it be named? Don’t discount this: the Big 14. Seriously.

Multiple Big Ten sources told the Chicago Tribune Wednesday that 14 teams, even 16, could be in play as it relates to the Big Ten’s potential expansion. “Anything is possible,” one source said, beyond the conventional wisdom of simply adding a 12th school.

A conference statement spoke of an “evaluation of options for conference structure and expansion.”

One option the Big Ten will not pursue is an odd number of schools — again.

But don’t be shocked if the conference of Bo and Woody adds three plates — or more — to the table.
