Anyone got a feeling that Emperor Delany is leading the Big Ten into a bad mistake with this one? Brandon and Smith have already said that they need 7 home games to maintain their current revenue. So Big Ten goes to 10 games and then suddenly both Michigan and Ohio State have just killed their non-conference schedule. Because it sets in stone and assures that they will never play another BCS school in non-conference. Why would even a Georgia Tech or Oregon State agree to a non-conference game if they can't at least be assured a 2-for-1. Better get used to a steady stream of MAC, then Sun Belt, and back outside of the conference schedule. This is exact opposite of the stated intended goal of improving strength of schedule. To me the 10 game schedule seems a mutual suicide pact asking for the athletic conference version of hemophilia.
