Release The Hounds! (To The Big Ten?)
According to multiple sources close to the negotiations - whoever they might be - NU and Mizzou have been invited to the Big Ten, as has Notre Dame and Rutgers.
"While nothing can be approved until the Big Ten presidents and chancellors meet the first week of June in Chicago, the league has informed the two Big 12 schools, Notre Dame and Rutgers that it would like to have them join. It is not yet clear whether the Big Ten will expand to 14 or 16 teams but sources indicated Missouri and Nebraska are invited in either scenario."
WHB is stationed in Kansas City. So one can only presume the sources are Missouri administrators. The rest of the story seems to confirm that.
UNL Chancellor Harvey Perlman told the Lincoln Journal-Star there wasn't any truth to the report.
"None whatsoever," he said to the LJS. NU then released a statement on the matter, which you can read here.
Well, either way we'll see. We've been slow to hop on this train, as you know. The KC/St. Louis media is quite good, but most of the stories about Big Ten expansion have been driven by them and by proxy Missouri. And we all know where Mizzou stands as it pertains to the Big Ten.
