Since all this expansion talk began, Rutgers has been spoken of as a shoe-in for addition to the Big Ten. The case for Rutgers is access to a large television market for the BTN, right? Doesn't that access rely on a pre-installed rabid fan-base that will demand BTN from their cable company? I went to PSU and I am from NY - I know several Rutgers alumni and lots of people from NJ - and I have never met a single die-hard Rutgers football fan. Not one! It was very cute and we were all really proud that Rutgers made a run and almost won the Big East that one time, but this is not a big-boy football program and I really don't see the value it adds to the conference at all.
