So it appears as if the #B1G may hold off on further expansion until atleast 2024 (why 2024?, ND/NBC contract expires in April 2025 & the BigTen won't make a move w/out a definitive answer from the Irish). Let's take a look at what Pods may look like from the new 16 team B1G.🧵
Pod 1
USC
UCLA
Northwestern
Illinois

Travel is going to be a nightmare for USC/UCLA. The #B1G would be wise to try and ease that as much as possible. The easiest/closest travel from LA would be to Chicago hence Northwestern. Illinois comes along as NW's biggest rival.
Pod 2
Nebraska
Iowa
Minnesota
Wisconsin

This Pod is fairly self explanatory. Preservation of the historic Iowa/Minnesota/Wisconsin rivalries is obtained and the new additional rivalries w/ Nebraska are nurtured. #B1G shouldn't spilt these four.

As many as 3-5% of admitted students at these elite Universities were under-qualified and over-privileged, given spots to leverage fundraising.

Lots of these schools barely have 5% Black students and TT faculty. #AcademicChatter #highereducation #highered
The other 15 universities in the lawsuit are @Brown, Cal Tech, Chicago, Columbia, Cornell, #Dartmouth, Emory, Georgetown, #MIT, #Northwestern, Notre Dame, Penn, Rice, Vanderbilt and #Yale.

Perhaps economically challenged superstar students will take their talents elsewhere.
I have *never* believed the racial #AffirmativeAction hype they tried to sell—that these alumni admits and full pay, overprivileged AA kids were smarter than we were. Please. Years of teaching affirm that under-resourced students can be so much smarter and more interesting too.

5 years ago today I was given a 2nd chance at life. I was diagnosed with diffuse scleroderma and was given 2-5 years to live. After having chemo to eradicate my immune system, I was given my own stem cells back. This saved my life by resetting my immune system.
Today I celebrate!
This was the harvesting process of my stem cells so I wouldn't have any transplant rejection issues.
I had to inject myself with neupogen to produce the stem cells that I needed.
