As with football, I see good reasons to play more games in-conference. Not only does it lend rigor to the championship process, but it can invigorate the local rivalries that give conferences their character. The B1G was diluted when NB, Rutgers, and MD entered; it can be strengthened by having these teams actually play each other, develop histories and rivalries. If Delaney and his cronies want to strengthen the B1G they could do worse than to have its teams remove some of the far-flung patsies from their schedules, actually play one another. I’ll bet it would help with waning attendance, too. EDIT: NB that they ARE going to 20 next year.
