"There are some advantages to 16 (teams) compared to 14," Hollis told ESPN on Wednesday. "Fourteen is clumsy. We're not out looking for two teams, but basically we will continue to survey the landscape."

What a racket.
Big Ten may keep Rutgers and Maryland off network - CBSSports.com
At the moment, the Big Ten Network is available in the home markets of Maryland and Rutgers, but it's located on sports tiers that are optional to cable subscribers. However, at the moment, cable subscribers outside the Big Ten market are paying about 15 cents a month for the network. Once the network hits the basic package in the Big Ten markets, that jumps up to 80 cents a month.
So that means for every 1 million cable subscribers in those markets -- subscribers, not people actually watching the Big Ten Network, just those with cable -- the Big Ten will make an additional $650,000 a month, or $7.8 million a year.
Between New York City, New Jersey, Baltimore and Washington, D.C., there are roughly 18.1 million people. If only 50 percent of those people have cable, that's nearly $5.9 million a month for the Big Ten Network.
