Vanderbilt a Big 10 candidate? Oh snap!

Written by Juan Cena on Wednesday, May 12 2010 and posted in SWRT

You'd better sit down for this one. Someone suggested that Vanderbilt might be a candidate for Big 10 expansion. Oh snap!
Okay, it was only a matter of time before Big 10 expansion went from just being silly to completely going off the deep end. And after Black Heart Gold Pants chimed in with its projected schools, that's saying a lot. But seriously, Vanderbilt?
Here's the logic from Team Speed Kills (who are passing the blame on Andy Katz for this): Vandy is very close in proximity to certain Big 10 schools. It's also has similar academic credentials as Northwestern. Translation: It'll be another geeky school with coke bottle glasses the other Big 10 schools can beat up on.
Vandy may also get a look-see more for the basketball than for the football. Apparently the same goes for Georgia Tech out of the ACC. But Tech almost makes even more sense. Maybe not geographically, but it still is considered a good school academically. Plus it has at the moment relatively strong football and basketball programs (which obviously Vandy can't say).
Where Andy Katz (or Team Speed Kills, or whoever) got this story is anybody's guess. But just remember: the voices in your head don't count as reliable sources.
