“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.”

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.
