What are people's thoughts on this B10 expansion? I'm torn on it honestly. Maybe someone can persuade me to one side or the other.

I can understand the positives of it, but at the same time I don't want to add a 12th team just for the heck of it. It can't be someone like Cincy.

cincy doesn't have the academics for the Big Ten. The Big Ten needs to have a conference championship solely on the fact that the conference is missing out. The Big Ten conference is a joke around the nation.

I think they need a school like Pittsburgh to come on board. Make a good rivalry between Penn State and Pitt. Problem I see is where do you draw the divison line.

Like this

East
Pitt
Penn State
Ohio State
Michigan
Michigan State
Northwestern

West
Wisconsin
Minnesota
Iowa
Illinois
Indiana
Purdue

or this

North
Minnesota
Wisconsin
Michigan
Michigan State
Ohio State
Illinois

South
Pittsburgh
Penn State
Indiana
Purdue
Northwestern
Iowa

You tell me how you would break the conference up in divisons.

I agree on Pitt. I read Mizzo will listen if they are called too. I think your 2nd theory on divisions would probably be right on. The potential problem I don't like is if one division is loaded and the other weak (B12 has this right now, and so does your first idea). I don't want that. If your first theory would happen that west division would be beating each other up majority of the time, while the east looks like boring football most the time.
