The latest Big Ten expansion rumors

Naturally, the best rumors on the Big Ten come from Kansas City radio stations. Better still, these rumors are best when only sort of refuted by someone who should know what's going on but clearly doesn't. This is what we had today, when said Kansas City radio station reported that the Big Ten had extended offers to 4 schools, which, of course, makes almost no sense. Joel Maturi, AD at Minnesota verbally shrugged his shoulders, confused.
Here are the 4 teams that Kansas City thinks have the offer:
Nebraska - They have already denied receiving an offer
Missouri - Probably one of the "locks" to join the conference if and when they expand. Not really reaching.
Rutgers - Finally! Someone for Northwestern to compete with! I bet Nebraska and Rutgers would be fast rivals.
Notre Dame - Pretty sure we've been down this road before.
So, I guess what I'm trying to say is, even if Joel Maturi is being coy (or stupid) I'm onto you, Kansas City. I see through your web of lies.
