Arrow Big Ten may expand to 12 schools.

http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=2950700

This obviously has more to do with football. Of course to make it balanced ND would have to be in the opposite division of OSU and Michigan.

West

ND
Wisconsin
Minnesota
Iowa
Northwestern
Illinois

East

OSU
Michigan
Penn State
Michigan State
Indiana
Purdue

That is what I'd hope for.

PS. going to Michigan at Wisconsin in November.

One of my biggest regrets in the 4 years of college, never went to a Big 10 football game.

This is what it will probably look like:

West
Michigan
Notre Dame
Wisconsin
Minnesota
Iowa
Northwestern

East
Ohio State
Penn State
Michigan State
Purdue
Indiana
Illinois

Ohio State and Michigan would match up once a year,and the West would be represented by Michigan and Notre Dame usually and the East would be a battle between Ohio State and Penn Sate

This way Ohio State and Michigan could match up possibly 2 times a year and their second game would be at a neutral site like @ Soldier Field in Chicago

Even if there ever is a 12th team, it doesn't guarantee a title game.

As a Big East fan who goes to the tourney every year, I say good riddance to ND. They're the most obnoxious collection of fans in the country.

I was at the Big East tourney last year watching Pittsburgh, and West Virginia play Louisville. My buddy lives in Chicago and was at the Big 10 tourney, and while he can hit DePaul's student center with a rock from his house, they were playing in MSG.

If Wisconsin beats Michigan the week before, they could be undefeated heading into their last game...which means you're wrong.
