Regardless, the first domino could fall soon. And after that, the landscape could drastically change. Our big question to you is this: in a reconfigured Big Ten -- say, one that poached a bunch of Big 12 teams -- what would the Gophers' place be? That is to say, in men's basketball and football, would adding teams make a difference in the general pecking order of where the Gophers would land in a typical season?
Let's say, for the sake of argument, Nebraska, Missouri, Notre Dame and a couple other teams make the leap to the Big Ten. How would that impact the Gophers' ability to compete?
