The news of the Big Ten adding two more teams this weekend came as a bit of a shock to anyone and everyone who thought conference realignment was going to take back seat for the time being.
We should have known better.
It also brought to the forefront that the Big 12 has a problem and it's a problem that has no easy solution.
Maryland and Rutgers are now in the Big Ten giving the conference 14 members.. The ACC loses a team in Maryland but will likely add another to stay at 14 teams. The SEC is already at 14 teams. The Pac-12 remains at 12 teams. The Big 12 remains at 10 teams.
