We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

You still have to beat undefeated OSU in their house.
I'm pretty sure I said that already.
OSU vacated some of those wins, it was co-championship, unlike your natty which was disputed.

When you stop counting the tri-championship you backed into by avoiding OSU in 2010, we will give up our division co-championship from 2012.
Our 1997 natty isn't disputed. It was voted on by the AP writers just like every other season over the past 70+ years.

Deal. You also have to stop counting that Bball thing from last year and you need to throw in your softball national championship. .
You want us to give up three championships to your one? That doesn't seem quite fair. What else you got?
wow. didn't even know he had an OSU offer.
The coaches disagre!!! That's the one that counts for the BCS.
I'll throw in the Desmond Howard trip and call it interference.
Izzo's not a fan of Rutgers and MD
joerexrode: Izzo on B1G expansion: "Not a big fan..." mentions tradition, extra travel, burden on players. Says no other comment, says more.
joerexrode: Izzo continues: "I give our conference credit that we're being proactive, because it's kind of a zoo out there."
joerexrode: More Izzo: "I just question sometimes how the two things go together. Academics and travel."
The BCS didn't exist in 1997 and coaches don't get to vote on who the AP sportswriters pick as the national champion any more than they get to vote on who the AP sportswriters pick as All Americans. Try again.
I think it's funny how our "1/2" national championship didn't count according to them but Dantonio got a "big ten championship" and last year we only got a "1/3" big ten basketball championship.
Stealing Sparty's recruits and owning them on the field since 1898
If I've ever called '97 a half a championship, I apologize. It's disputed, and I tend to think Nebraska won it. You guys were the second best team that year though, mad props.
Wow. That's tempting. But I can't. It's still too lopsided in your favor.
Since when does being the best team have anything to do with being named national champion? No way was Izzo's 1999-2000 basketball team the best in the country that season. I'm not sure if it even was in the top 4-5, but you guys like to claim that one. The AP sportswriters voted and awarded Michigan the CFB national title in 1997, just like they have voted and awarded other teams the CFB national title each year since 1936. That has never been disputed by anyone (except you, apparently).

Here's the thing. Who cares? You have a NC trophy somewhere and that's cool.
Here's a fact: say "1997" football championship to any fan and they think split title. Um/Nebraska Say 2000 Bball championship to any fan and they MSU.
I'll let you guys argue semantics
Deal for Maryland is done. Rutgers likely to follow
DanHellie: Several highly connected folks at U. of Maryland said deal to Big 10 is done. Just need rubber stamp from Board. Announcement likely Monday
So wait this is really going to happen? Dear god I thought it was a joke.
UUUGGGGGHHHHHH. I don't want Maryland in this conference, or Rutgers for that matter.
There goes that easy 2014 schedule we had. Schedules are going to have to be redone.
Might work out in our favor over time? Rutgers and Maryland instead of OSU and Wiscy sounds nice.
Are we sure the other team is Rutgers? I'd rather have Syracuse for the basketball (and lax).
You've got to be shitting me
Would be hilarious if Delany punked UNL again.
