Counting is Not the Big Ten's Strength (and Neither is Football)

Apparently, the Big Ten is looking to expand.

If you were unaware, the Big Ten is composed of 11 teams.  If you were unaware, I'm sure that this surprises you a little bit and maybe even makes you laugh at the Big Ten.

My feeling is that if the Big Ten wants to stay proudly erroneous (and a name-change certainly doesn't look in the offing any time), do it up big.  Just 12 teams?  Expand to a 20-team Big Ten; then you can have a pair of Big Ten divisions -- and maybe at least one of those teams will be nationally competitive in football.
