B1G Expansion by the Numbers

This is something I did over at Testudo Times last year when the ACC was going through expansion. It's just an easy way to compare teams in the conference to the new additions of Maryland and Rutgers, as well as the potential expansion teams that people have suggested at some point. Obviously doesn't tell the whole story, but hopefully interesting.
