Indianapolis, IN-The NCAA discussed the Big 10's request to add 12 more teams to the Big 10. With 14 teams presently in the Big 10, this would bring the total up to 26.
"We long ago stopped having anywhere near ten teams, so as long as we are expanding, it just made sense to let a few more popular teams in. This way, every ten years each team will have finally made it through the schedules to play every team once. Ten years=Big 10!"
Some of the new teams include the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology, Bob Jones University, the State University of New York Maritime College, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and the University of Phoenix Online College.
The rest of the new teams will be decided in a lottery on Tuesday.
