Looks like Big Ten expansion timetable accelerating
Conference could decide to add schools in next few months

The Dec. 15 statement said Delany would be asked “to provide recommendations” to the Big Ten Council of Presidents/Chancellors “over the next 12 to 18 months.” That wouldn’t seem to preclude a recommendation after five-plus months.

Efforts to reach Delany for comment Saturday were unsuccessful, and he has declined interview requests on the subject, saying he’s in a “silent phase.”
