The Big 10 and the Pac-12 are expanding their partnership
for an annual inter-league game for each school in the two leagues. While the details are yet to be worked out, two things are certain: The partnership will start in 2017 and the TV rights will cost a fortune. Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany said...
"It's sort of in lieu of what some other people are doing (with expansion)," "Our idea is you can't stand still. You have to build in an environment where people are competing for attention, where they're competing to have the best competitive assets and to present themselves in the best way. I think both of us believe … this is the most constructive way for us to do that."
"We're going to continue to play other conferences in bowls," Delany insisted. "We're going to continue to play challenges against other leagues. And we're going to continue to be involved in the NCAA and all of its championships. We're just trying to deepen our collegial relationship, build on what we've had."
I like this idea.
