    it was a trial balloon thrown up to gauge response.....

    I was rather shocked at how little negativity I saw

    If we our division gets MD and Rutgers, they should change the names to the Blue and Red divisions.

    Red would then have at least 5 teams with red as a primary color - OSU, Wiscy, Rutgers, Maryland and Indiana.
    Blue would have Illinois, Michigan, Northwestern with blue colors - far less, but still plausible (green and yellow would also play a major part of other teams).

    Would make a lot more sense than Legends and Leaders.

    I don't care about the Illibuck, and tOSU would get to play @ two recruiting goldmines every other year? Please?

    There's gonna be four 'divisions' after the dust has settled this round, imho...

    It depends if you think this round is over. I don't see how you go to 4 divisions with 14 teams.

    That's why it sounds great to us and Wiscy. Probably not so much for scUM, MSU, and Nebraska. It will be logistically insane if they break up Rutgers and MD in separate divisions. Time to make the move to east/west.

    Right you are. I was implying that it's my guess that we're going to 16 this round...

    Really hoping it's UVA and UNC. I think the B1G would be complete if that comes to pass...

    Fuck ND.

    LOL at the Newark Star Ledger guy on TV right now.

    "When conference expansion started Rutgers was just looking for a life-preserver. Now they're on a cruiseliner."
