GT to B1G?

11 posts in this topic

@GSwaim Word from calls today is that another #ACC team will announce a move with 7-10 days to the #B1G. This would be a HUGE domino.

@Tim_Matty247: Sources are indicating that the #B1G has approved #GT as its 15th member. Stay tuned... @CFravel247 @Clemson247

If that happens it will be the be the big domino. SEC will have to swoop in and grab 2. Then there will be a scramble for the Big XII spots. Would have to think they are saving 16 for UNC.

Its not true of course.

“There is no truth to the rumors,” Institute spokesman Matt Nagel said in an e-mail Friday afternoon.

In his conversations with school president G.P. “Bud” Peterson, acting athletic director Paul Griffin said that Peterson “has told me there’s been no communication (with the Big Ten), nor does he expect any.”

Griffin spoke from Charlotte, N.C., where Tech will play Florida State for the ACC football championship Saturday. Griffin said in addition he was not aware of any communications between Tech leadership and the Big Ten or any other conference

It would have been stupid of GT to fully support the lawsuit against Maryland, while they were in talks witht the Big 10 themselves.

There was some indication Maryland might leave, when they voted against the increased exit fee along with their financial issues. There has been no such indication from anyone else, except perhaps FSU. And I think FSU was somewhat calmed by the deal with Notre Dame and the admission of Louisville. And unlike Maryland, they are not in bad financial condition.

Man, build a time machine and go back in time to the 80s. Grab a sports fan and bring them back to the present. They would flip out over all the teams that have moved in recent years. It's craziness.

Lol at DG's comment.

I dunno who Kevin Jones is but he appears to be another one of these NJPanther type of guys. A wanna be reporter flunky throwing poo to the wall hoping it sticks.

Kevin Jones:

According to his twitter profile, he is an ordained minister. Maybe God is his source. :)

    • Stop me if you've heard this one... Once upon a time the USA provided weapons to "Freedom Fighter's" opposed to the Soviet Union's illegal invasion of Afghanistan. FYI:  The war drained huge amounts of life and treasure in a futile attempt to defeat a elusive resistance.  After ten years the Soviets concluded they were on a fool's errand and withdrew in humiliation.  Many believe the war hastened the fall of USSR.  I wonder if there is any lesson to be learned here for those in Washington D.C.?
    • TE George Kittle is one of those TEs not many are talking much about. He comes from the underperforming Iowa team that appears to look like they won't be worthwile for a long while, and just doesn't pop out very much in this loaded TE class. However, his Pro Day turned some heads. George Kettle may not be the guy you immediately see, but he's arguably the 2nd best blocking TE in this class. He can also catch, and has shown the ability to be a threat as a pass catcher. His real scary stuff comes with his amazing redzone performances.  Iowa may have hindered his potential, but he definitely has it. Some extra information concerning this TE: http://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/sports/college/columnists/chad-leistikow/2017/03/28/george-kittle-nfl-draft-profile-improving-pro-day-hawkeyes/99724056/ Sounds like a solid TE who can be something in the NFL with some work.
