Big 10 Commissioner Satisfied with 12 Teams


LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany says the league has what it wants with 12 members.

Delany was at a Nebraska booster luncheon Friday. He says he hasn't received many phone calls from schools looking for membership because they realize he's serious about wanting to stand pat.

Delany said expanding the Big Ten beyond 12 teams wouldn't be appealing now because it could compromise scheduling and chemistry among the schools.

Nebraska was accepted as the Big Ten's 12th member last year. The Cornhuskers became active members this fall.
