Excerpt from a Syracuse based article:

Q. “If the Big Ten came calling, would you consider the possibility of going in that direction?”

Chancellor Shaw Response: “We, of course, will keep all of our options open. But, frankly, I think our future is on the east coast. I think our future in athletics, whether we’re talking about the Olympic sports or we’re talking about men’s and women’s basketball or football, this is where we compete, this is where our media interest is, this is where our students come from, this is where our donors come from. It doesn’t make a lot of sense to me to try to develop some kind of artificial relationship that’s away from where you live and where you breathe. Of course, there’s always temptations, but the reason why we committed three months ago to this process was my belief and Jake’s belief that we can pull out of this and develop a very strong, competitive – now we’re talking about football – football conference.”

SEC, Big Ten heads speak
By Anthony Lane, tlane@nashvillecitypaper.com

Delany quotes:

Delany on Big Ten expansion: “Penn State was a great addition for us, but with an eight-game schedule, it created two no-plays [Big Ten football teams do not play two other members in a given season in the 11-team format]. Unless we add a member that would improve us in a lot of different ways, we would prefer not to take a step which would have three no-plays.”

But what about Notre Dame? Delany again: “I would say that Notre Dame probably has a standing invitation to join any conference it chooses.”

Interesting that Delany says BC will be the ACC in 2006.

Agree with him that BC will not get out of the BE before 2006 and paying 5 million exit fees. Could pay more depending on other legal suite with BC and Miami.

Nice to see the Big 10 has no plans to expand to 12 just because the ACC expanded.

Agreed that Notre Dame has an open invite to any confernce it prefers. Must be nice to have this status in anything.

I disagree with Delany's observation that an eight team play-off would kill the bowl concept and prevent those 7 or 8 B10 schools from playing in a bowl game.

That is, not if the first round in the play-off used the bowls. Look at it this way: the BCS will have four New Years bowls this year, with one of them having the national championship as well. Why couldn't those same four bowls accomodate the 8 teams in the a play-off....all without preventing the other bowl games that we have today?

Meanwhile, I applaud the B10's position not to expand to 12 teams unless the right team comes along.

The Weekend Review
Stewart Mandel
These five teams have completely turned their seasons around

Quote:
5. Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany has remained stubborn in his insistence that the Big Ten will not follow the ACC's lead and expand just for the sake of staging a conference championship game. His reasoning: No feasible school besides Notre Dame would make it financially worthwhile. Perhaps it's time to consider another motive: Determining a true champion. With Michigan and Wisconsin both sitting at 5-0 in the conference, it's possible the Big Ten will wind up with split champs who don't face each other for the second time in three seasons (Ohio State and Iowa both went 8-0 in 2002) and the fourth time in nine years. If that happens, the conference will use overall record as the tiebreaker (the Badgers would beat out the Wolverines, which lost to Notre Dame), which will likely cause Michigan coach Lloyd Carr to once again push for a softer non-conference schedule -- or, quite possibly, change his opinion on expansion. Since that's not likely to happen anytime soon, perhaps it's time to consider adding a ninth conference game (will anyone really miss those September showdowns with Central Michigan?) or reduce each team's number of permanent conference opponents (teams they face every year) from two to one.

These are all pluses in Delanys mind: it means that like in 2002, the Big ten will send 2 teams to the BCS. With a championship game, a loss would likely bump the loser out of BCS contention.
