The popular Big Ten commissioner spoke for approximately 37 minutes at his league’s annual get-together today and said, for lack of a better phrase, a lot of nothing.
Why, it’s almost as if the speculation and supposition is running so rampant that perception has lapped reality and what is real is not what is presented to be real.
I’m positively stunned.
Certainly the greatest misrepresentation with which Delany is dealing — and he’s made that condition so with his own own actions — is the imminence of a decision to expand and who to invite.
*Delany said the media was welcome to attend the June 6 meetings of Big Ten presidents and chancellors — “you bring the beer, we will cook the brats” – but added: “There will be no votes. That’s not in our time frame.”
*That time frame might be stretched in either direction, with the league not wedded to its timetable of 12-18 months. “Could it be 19 (months)?” Delany asked. “I hope not. Could it be 11? It may.”
