Perhaps what the Big 10 should do is just give some school football membership only. Other conferences do it. They really only need another member for football.
Yeah, the Big East would fight it as hard as they can, and if they did lose Rutgers (or whomever) in this scenario, the Big East would then likely be looking to replace them with someone like an East Carolina or Central Florida to keep that eight-member requirement for the BCS.
