Our long national nightmare is over.
Back in November we indicated our displeasure with Maryland and Rutgers joining the Big 10. As if to show that there is a silver lining to every cloud, ESPN reports that once Maryland and Rutgers are in the Big 10, the conference will stop referring to its divisions as "Leaders" and "Legends." Instead the Big 10 will have divisions based on geography. Importantly, the proposed Big Ten West will include Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa. Ohio State and Michigan will be in the Big Ten East along with Rutgers and Maryland. The only guaranteed football game between East and West will be Indiana/Purdue.
