Let's see how this turns out.
That would create an odd number of teams. I'm guessing they don't expect ND to accept.

They said if ND accepts they are going to extend an offer to one additional team.

Wait they only need one additional team to get a conference championship game, correct?

Also, I'm thinking about grad school now. I've been looking at Notre Dame's MA and PhD programs in English and literature. Both PhD's available require proficiency in two foreign languages, and that's not happening, and the MA with research requires one foreign language, which also likely won't happen. Why a graduate English degree requires this is kind of strange IMO. So I'm likely looking at an MA in English without research. Basically what I have to do now is take the GRE's and apply this fall, then I would enroll and come back to ND in Fall '11.

Anybody here taken the GRE's? I looked at some sample questions and they look easy as hell.

Yes. They need 12, they have 11.

I wonder when they'll get around to changing their conference name...

That kinda helps the Big East which makes me happy.

But in a strange way I kinda want the BEast to crumble so that we end up in the SEC or as an Independant

Also, our AD that just retied said that if the BEast falls down to non bcs or even down to FCS or lower that WVU should remain loyal and ride the ship down with it. Yeah, thank God he just retired

West Virginia would probably go broke if they went independent.

Jack Bauer is pretty awesome. For the past couple years he's been less badass, but he's stepping up his game in this last season.

Big time Nebraska fan here. I was just discussing this in the Vicious OT, found this, so I decided to pop my head in and say hello.

If ND accepts, they will invite one more team, probably Syracuse or Pitt. If they don't, they will stop at 14 teams for the time being and explore adding two more teams later.

These were not invites. They were requests for information. Nebraska also declines knowledge of everything until the very last moment, so don't look too much into what they say.
In 1999 (I think it was), Big 10 publically invited Notre Dame to be the 12th team. Notre Dame publically said no. This was very embarassing to the Big 10, so they are trying to avoid it happening again. They went to the schools to find out what they would do if they get the invite. Nebraska and Rutgers said they would join, Missouri is expected to say yes, and Notre Dame said no. It gives the Big 10 a pretty clean roadmap of where they can go from there. They will most likely vote on how many teams and who invite during the first weekend of June during their annual meeting using information gathered today.

I would think you will hear official statements in mid-to-late June or early July with the SEC, PAC-10, and what will be left of the Big 12 by the start of football season.

If ND and and Rutgers accept we'll need atleast 3 teams. One replacing ND, and one replacing Rutgers. Then one more so we would have a 10 team conference.

ECU, UCF, and for the hell of it I think we invite Maryland and BC. But adding Army wouldn't be terrible.

That wouldn't look too bad on the football resume, maybe even a little better but not as good on the basketball resume but hell the B10 need all the help they can get in basketball.

Also I know Devine has no real shot at a Heiman because he plays at WVU but check this video out, it gives me chills and it's only the trailer

What if (and this is hypothetical, my sources are not saying much on this), after losing three teams to the Big 10 and possibly two to the new SEC superconference, the BEast and ACC decide to merge to also be a superconference? It appears to be the direction college sports are heading anyway.

I don't mind either way. I just want the phone or the money. At this point, I'd rather have the money.
