I considered them, but would hate to face that offense every year.
So you're making long term conference decisions based on a single coach who will be gone in a decade?
Drop PSU to watch the meltdown, and because that place is a cesspool.
This. A thousand times this.
Kick out PSU & invite Pitt. Done.
I should go look it up, but those Houston teams from the late '80s-earl '90s were offensive juggernauts playing in a low mid major conference.
Houston was still in the SWC at the time (Texas, Aggie, Arkansas etc).
By population ..we in there.
Per capita (NFL players per 100K residents)...
#9 Ohio - 0.674
#13 New Jersey - 0.573
New Jersey & DMC are both fertile recruiting areas. They're in the same territory as PA, IL & TSUN.
P.S we can debate with out u trying2 make me look stupid.
Posting hard numbers is not 'trying2 (sic) make you look stupid'.
Education wise we do well too.
Yes academically Rutgers is a mid-pack B1G school.
We will bring comp..to this BIG10 east in a couple of years.
Perhaps, but that's a big mountain and right now Rutgers is at the base looking up. The reality is that the RU athletic department is nowhere close to being competitive with other schools in the conference.
We not here for no cable deal,
Rutgers was added because it gives the B1G access to east coast media markets. That IS the bottom line. The other schools aren't taking a pay cut to add a new member & it's the only way that Rutgers was able to pay for it's membership. Nebraska moved the needle because it meant the addition of a championship game & it is a national name. Rutgers brought neither.
Kareem Walker prove that theory wrong,how bout Jabrill Pepper,an #1 Rashan Gary.
Increased access to new recruiting grounds is a nice ancillary benefit but it was not the reason the school was added.
Let's be frank, NJ recruiting already effectively belonged to the B1G (via PSU).
So, I have a prety good streak going but it certainly could be wrong.
Seriously though, for the -12 to have a championship game one of two things has to happen...
1. They have to add a minimum of two teams. The conference has stated repeatedly & firmly that they are not interested in expansion. Even if that is a smoke screen and they do expand it's extremely unlikely that new members would be able to be added in time for the 2015 season.
2. They NCAA rules requiring a minimum of 12 teams for a championship game would have to be changed. The ACC is currently pushing to get that to happen (because nobody gives a damn when Duke whens their division), but so as of right now it doesn't seem to have any traction with the B1G, Pac & SEC (who would have to be on board to get it passed).
As of the 2014 season...
Players in the NFL by state of birth:
#5 Ohio - 78
#9 New Jersey - 51
Players in the NFL by state of high school played:
#5 Ohio - 72
#7 New Jersey - 56
This guy is not a rutgers fan. Pretty sure he's a Cuse or Uconn troll.
The upside down R in his avatar, the over the top pronouncements & the exaggerated bad grammar are all strong indications.
Ohio State used to have a similar stalker/troll who went by 'Jethro'.
New Jersey has a solid base of football talent. NYC on the other hand, has very little for it's size. There aren't many football fields for kids in the city.

Looks like we may have found Jersey's version of ThaKid.
However, I'm not convinced this isn't a troll account.

Next season the Big 12 will have a championship game which will eliminate much of the issue.
According to whom?

I'm not that guy.
No, you're the guy who posted flame bait hoping to garner a reaction. You need to take a step back & think about who is actually skirting the edge of 'worst posts' territory.
Guess what, I really don't care what Mike Weber wears while he works out. He is not beholden to me, you or anyone whose only connection with him is as a spectator.
Stop being part of the problem.
But still, 17 is not a "kid". Babies are 0-2, toddlers are 2-4, kids are 5-12, teens are 13-17, young men are 18-24, on average.
I especially like how you ended your self created arbitrary definitions with 'on average'.
This thread didn't produce the pitchforks & torches you were hoping for eh?
Purely hypothetical. Let's say there was a recruit or athlete that held somebody at gunpoint. We'd have TheBadOwl on here defending the young man, saying he's "just a kid".
The Latin root is 'cognitus' (known/acknowledged). The same source gives us 'cognizant' & 'recognize' (cognitus is the perfect past participle of cognōscō).
Eric Haw - Wow, now there's a name I haven't heard in a long time!
The SEC hasn't won a BCS bowl in 2 years. The B1G is 4-1.
Just picking at nits but there is no more BCS.
