Interesting development. I like that the B1G is being aggressive in other sports. Johns Hopkins is also a great fit on the research and academia side.
This article makes me think of other top notch universities that the B1G might want to look at as expansion candidates. Particularly, I am interested in the B1G developing an international footprint by looking at the University of Toronto and McGill University for hoops and hockey. Both would open up massive markets for the B1G, and really only the B1G can geographically pull off such an expansion to the north. Something to think about.
