The rumor that the B1G is targeting Georgia Tech is now coming from multiple places. It's still to be seen if this is legitimate, but it makes sense. Here's why -
1. TV sets. Obviously. Maryland, Rutgers, and GT provide the NYC, DC and Atlanta markets. I read somewhere that the population in the mid-west is actually decreasing. It would make sense that the B1G would try to grab as many big-city markets as possible, while expanding their brand across a pretty large swath of the US.
2. NOTRE DAME. It's no secret that the B1G wants Notre Dame. When the Notre Dame / ACC deal was announced, I'm sure the B1G decided at exactly that moment that it would be a good time to destroy the ACC. The B1G now probably wants 4x16 team conferences, because they know in that scenario that they get Notre Dame. Why? Because ND will never go to the Big 12 because they won't coexist with Texas.
