    I might as well be wishing for the University of Utah to relocate to Southern California. You all need to accept what you are, and only then might BYU be successsful, within the framework of what it is. You’re in this pickle because of unrealistic expectations and self-delusions.

    "Discipleship is not a spectator sport. We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    Today this same guy was saying that the B1G and B12 are going to swap Nebraska and WVU.

    I unfollowed him.

    Has there ever been a conference that booted a member? Off the top of my head I can't remember that ever happening.

    Yes, smaller conferences have booted members before. I don't recall an instance of the now P-5 schools, although I think the Univ. of Chicago removed itself from the B10 back in the day.

    The Big East was a major conference back then. This was before Miami and Virginia Tech bolted. They were a BCS conference (the pre-cursor to the P-5).

    Edit: The funny thing is, the conference got decimated and they ended up bringing Temple back into the fold.

    The interesting thing with UofChicago is that even though they left the big ten way back in the 30s (Football) and 40s (everything else), they still had Big Ten ties until last year.

    All Big Ten members are members of the Big Ten Academic Alliance (BTAA), formerly known as the Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC), an academic consortium which allows students at Big Ten institutions to take distance courses at other participating institutions. Students at participating schools are also allowed "in-house" viewing privileges at other participating schools' libraries. The BTAA also employs collective purchasing, which has saved member institutions $19 million to date. The University of Chicago, a former Big Ten Conference member, was a member of the CIC from 1958 to June 29, 2016 (when it was renamed the Big Ten Academic Alliance).

    That is pretty funny... Is WVU even an AAU (Association of American Universities) member? Oh wait, Nebraska isn't an AAU member.

    Nebraska was an AAU member when it joined the B1G. Nebraska's strategy seems to be to continue to keep getting rolled by Big Ten football powers to ensure they stay in the conference. Start beating Ohio St. consistently and the Huskers might get shown the door.
