Won’t Wednesday July 26th with Northwestern become now very interesting!!??
My long range prediction is that the administration at Northwestern has just handed the B1G the pathway to how to expel a member… Thus creating the way to add Washington right away without going much larger yet.

Did you feel that Penn State provided a path for dismissal from the Big Ten with the Jerry Sandusky scandal? Four high ranking administrators, including the former University president, ended up served time in prison for their roles in the cover-up debacle. How about the circumstances surrounding the death of Jordan McNair? Maryland coach Durkin, at first placed on administrative leave, was then found responsible for the tragedy and fired. Oh, and how about the national story of former Rutgers’ basketball coach Mike Rice physically and verbally abusive to his players? Initially suspended but then fired after video evidence emerged. That incident occurred a year after Rutgers was asked to join the conference but a year before they began play. If ever there were a pathway… No, the only thing Pat Fitzgerald provided was a really sorry Wildcat 2023 football season.
