Big 10-4 Good Buddy

That's a BIG 10-4 , Good Buddy!
Rumors were circulating last week that Maryland and Rutgers were headed to the Big Ten, bringing the number-challenged misnomer to 14 teams.

That's a Ten-Four, in CB language.  Nebraska heads the convoy.

According to ESPN:
The University of Maryland's Board of Regents voted Monday to accept an invitation to join the Big Ten and begin competition in the conference in the 2014-15 academic year.
Meanwhile, Big East Conference sources told ESPN that Rutgers will be announced as the 14th member of the Big Ten on Tuesday.
"Today is a watershed moment for the University of Maryland," said university president Wallace D. Loh in a release. "Membership in the Big Ten Conference is in the strategic interest of the University of Maryland."

Apparently playing second fiddle to Ohio State and THEM along with piss poor refereeing is in the strategeric interests of these fine eastern academic institutions.  I wonder if the welcoming package includes a case of K-Y Jelly?

No seriously.  The Big Ten is wonderful.  Who needs to be bothered with pesky holding calls or chop blocks anyway?  It's all about the money.  Rutgers . . . Maryland . . . come on down!

Maryland probably sees this as a way to maybe keep all the good recruits from going to Penn State.  Good luck with that.

And now we get to play Rutgers every year!  It just keeps getting better and better!
"Looks like we got us a CONVOY!"
