Big Ten Conference Divisions

    I think we'll see the "Whine and Cheese Division" headed by Michigan and Wisconsin, and the "Buckeyes and their Bitches Division" headed by Ohio State.

    Who gives a [Mark May] how the rest of the schools are divvied up.

    Ummmmm... I do. I'd prefer to have access to NJ and MD. The western states other than Illinois offer very little to us in terms of recruits, prospective enrollees in the university, and a greater national audience.

    You make some excellent points that, unfortunately, detracted from my earlier droll commentary. So I wish you a crappy day, sir.

    That is an interesting take that I haven't seen anyone really spend much time discussing ie that Ohio State + TSUN in the same division would actually help both (assuming they finish 1 - 2) in post season berths.

    Big Ten to reconsider division names

    Now if we can just get rid of all the damn double headed award names.

    Bull[Mark May] got zero acceptance. And what the fuck is so bad about "Plains" and "Lakes" divisions? At least they make sense...

    I just got a radical thought... how about East and West! Then, Ohio State could be in the same division as Michigan and THE GAME could actually mean something with regards to a division championship...

    Plus, the geography grouping would make it easier to remember who is in which division. For the last 2 years, I've had to say "M, N, and Iowa in one division and everyone else in the other".

    Only downside is we'd obviously just be copying the SEC, and the last thing we want to be is SEC wannabes. Who in their right mind would copy a conference as crappy as the SEC? Blech.

    That would leave you with the majority of the big media markets, recruiting grounds & high profile teams (Ohio State, TSUN, PSU) in the east. Essentially you would create a B1G West with the same inherent disadvantages of the old Big XII North.

    BTW Regardless of how exactly how the schools are split my preference is still for one division to be named "Western" (not West) to honor the original name of the conference.

    With eastward expansion they'll probably have to go geographic or choose names that would be somewhat inclusive of Maryland and Rutgers.

    Delany will probably eff it up and call them 'Dirt' and 'H20' divisions.

    Those aren't nearly pretentious enough to come from Delaney, they sound more like they were chosen by BUCKYLE.

    Now that we have that out of the way.

    Probably the best idea I've heard to date. But are the Buckeyes to be Jose, or Cuervo?
  14. Zurp

    Zurp I have misplaced my pants.

    Give them names that don't have anything in common.
    "Porn Stars" and "Locomotives"
    "Cowboys" and "Rubber Tires"
    "Fart-Throwers" and "Mike Tyson's Punchout"
    "Bootleggers" and "She tasted like cigarettes"

    Bring back the name "Western Conference" and add "Eastern Conference". Heritage and geography wrapped up in one. Plus, when it goes to 20, Big Ten Eastern or Western Conference will actually make numeric sense. :biggrin:
