Big Ten To Invite Missouri, Nebraska, Notre Dame, and Rutgers Says Source No One's Heard Of

According to talk radio 810 AM out of Kansas City, the Big Ten has extended invitations to Nebraska, Missouri, and Notre Dame to join the conference in its plans to expand. If Notre Dame remains independent, the station’s sources says the next choice would be Rutgers, who would get the late night booty call from Jim Delany only after Notre Dame explained it had to stay home and, um…clean the kitchen. Yeah, that’s it. Clean the kitchen.

Caveat lector: this is the first report anywhere naming specific names re: Big Ten expansion, and thus should be treated with great skepticism. That said, if those are indeed the names, they would match most people’s best guesses at expansion candidates with little in the way of surprises in terms of the choices. (Even Rutgers, whose proximity to lucrative New York television markets would be most appealing for the Big Ten Network’s ad revenues.)
