Default Big 10 from 11 to 12?

Talks are starting for the Big Ten to expand once again. Who do you think is the best fit for the Big Ten? I've heard Pitt, Missouri, Iowa St. Rutgers, Syracuse, Notre Dame and University of Chicago.
Obviously there are advantages and disadvantages to all of these. Taking a Big 12 team (Iowa St. or Mizzou) means the Big 12 will need to expand as well, though they have a worthy candidate for expansion themselves in TCU.
Notre Dame is an independent (at least in football) but they've been reluctant for quite some time to join.
University of Chicago seems like a terrible idea seeing as they'd have to build up their sports programs considerably before being ready to truly compete.
Rutgers, Pitt and Syracuse seem ok.
What do you think?
