Rutgers AD Tim Pernetti Says School "Belongs" In Big Ten Conference
Published November 20, 2012
Big Ten Network’s Dave Revsine said Rutgers joining the Big Ten “is a different situation then what we saw” with Maryland joining the conference. Revsine said Maryland was a “charter member of a league that has flourished through the years,” and there was some “ambivalence there by people who felt very strongly about staying.” Revsine: “I don’t think there’s going to be a whole lot of ambivalence here.” He noted the Big East is a “sinking ship,” and for Rutgers, “this is a chance to start anew in a much stronger league and a much better situation” (Big Ten Network, 11/20).
Rutgers plans to join the Big Ten along with Maryland in '14, though the Big East “requires 27 months' notification for departing members.” The school will “have to negotiate a deal with the Big East to leave early” (ESPN.com, 11/20).
