The West is stacked IMO. East looks easier, too bad IU and PU couldnt switch.
Legends and Leaders are no more, as the Big Ten will use geography to determine its new divisions and division names beginning in the 2014 season.
mkillian247 on twitter..... I say a lot of stuff you wont care about.
I think the EAST is going to be the strongest overall of the two proposed divisions. My God: Michigan,Michigan State,Ohio State,Penn State,Maryland, and Rutgers. In my humble opinion, this is a "Murders Row" of football powerhouses. Purdue will get to play Illinois,Iowa, Minnesota,Northwestern, and Indiana every year and seldom have to play Ohio State, Penn State, Michigan, and Michigan State . In my opinion, it would have been more fair for IU and Purdue to be switched. I.E. IU Should be in the West. Purdue is closer to Michigan,Michigan State,Ohio State than IU is and IU is certainly closer to Iowa and Nebraska than it is to Maryland, Penn State. Maybe my geography is bad but I see the Big Ten as having 6 "Super" Football schools and 4 are in the same division as Indiana and only 2 in the same division with Purdue. Somehow that just seems unfair and stupid based on the past history of IU Football & Purdue football !!! As much as it pains me to admit this in a public forum, Purdue's overall football tradition is better than IU's past football history. Neither school has been a Big Ten "Super " power in football but Purdue should be in the strongest of the 2 divisions or one of the "Super Six" should be swapped for Illinois to make it 3 " Super Football Powers" in each division instead of 4 in one and only 2 in the other ...
