    UCLA and USC Joining the Big Ten

    Kevin Warren on potential expansion: “Regarding expansion, … it may include future expansion. But it will be done for the right reasons, at the right time,” Warren said, per SI’s Pat Forde. “We will not expand just to expand. We will be strategic.” “Where expansion goes? I don’t know. … I’m embracing change,” Warren explained, per Forde. “I’m going to be very aggressive. We want to be aggressive in how we build this. We’re in a stage of probably a five-year period of change.” --------------------------------------------------- Sounds to me like the Big Ten isn't done, likely expands to twenty teams. Would guess that they take the next year to determine where they want to expand and that it will be largely market based.

    I’m seeing Brit Floyd — great Pink Floyd cover band this Sunday in Indy. Really sound like them.

    Morning Shootaround

    I have the outside shot of Ben Simmons. Played as many games year as him as well.

    “So you get two good hours on the field about every day, you get about an hour and a half in the meeting room and that’s pretty much all you need to thoroughly coach your team.” -- Steve Spurrier

    Because the garbage has the receipts in this case.

    If you want to get a laugh, read the GBI reactions to him. Everything from 'he's the best high school shooter I've ever seen' to 'he's strong enough to back down Big Ten guards' to 'he has a chance to be a Robbie Hummel clone'. All of a guy who had offers from Indiana State, Liberty, and Purdue and is unrated. One guy made the suggestion that his spot is to just be a shooter and the board wanted to lynch him.

    B1G expansion

    Side note....I'm embarrassed to say that when people refer to Louisville as U of6, I don't know what that means. Any help would be appreciated. :(

    With so many low ceilings, they need to stop recruiting seven footers.

    X is listed at 6'3". If that's true, Hood Schifino looks closer to 6'6" to me than 6'5".
  11. He had an individual Level 1 charge as part of the investigation which is a little bit different than when a school is the only entity charged. However, who knows when the Arizona case will be decided and if it is, who knows if Miller would accept the individual penalty immediately or try to make it play out and delay or challenge it. https://tucson.com/sports/arizonawildcats/basketball/expert-suspension-likely-to-follow-sean-miller-to-xavier-if-ncaa-charge-against-him-holds/article_f2fe54f4-a888-11ec-b225-3b2af3c04dbf.html

    B1G expansion

    Same here -- I was able to read it despite not subscribing. Might look different on a phone, though, which might not allow the banner to be clicked off.
  13. I know I'm in the minority, but I'm not wild about playing 4 games that big early especially when two Big Ten games are going to be peppered in there as well. That said, the NCAA committee seems to reward even losses to good competition.

    B10 Expansion Candidate Poll: Part 1

    I would have added Georgia State into the miscellaneous category. Obviously it's not a school that would be under consideration but they had the eighth largest college enrollment in 2021-22 at over 52,000....in the Big Ten only Ohio State and Illinois had larger enrollments. Stadium size is an issue, but they could look to use the Georgia Dome while building/expanding.
