Big Ten commissioner to end silence on expansion

He and the rest of the college football’s power brokers on Tuesday began three days of meetings to discuss various aspects of the Bowl Championship Series at a swanky Arizona hotel.
Expansion by the Big Ten – or the Pac-10, which has also said it’s exploring the idea of adding teams – is not officially on the agenda.
But with the commissioners of all 11 major football conferences and Notre Dame’s athletic director in attendance, you can bet there will be expansion talk at the Royal Palms Resort and Spa, even if it’s at the bar instead of inside a board room.
