It was a hell of a year in the B1G.
We added a new team and (ridiculously named) divisions.
We saw OSU lose to Purdue but beat Wisky.
Wisky loses to MSU and OSU while thrashing Nebraska
Nebraska pounds MSU but gets squashed by UM
UM loses to Iowa and MSU but destroys Nebraska
Iowa loses to PSU, gets trounced by MSU, and eeks out a win against UM
In the span of 1 year, we will be introducing 6 new coaches in a league of 12 (Michigan, Indiana, Minn, Illinois, PSU, OSU).
We saw scandals that will scar 2 of the conference's perennial powers.
(hate to say it) We saw the resurgence of Michigan certainly as a conference power, if not a national power just yet.
The longest tenured coaches in the B1G are now Ferentz, Bielema, and Dantonio.
Every week brings something new. Who knows what things will be like this time next year....but I'm def. excited for it.
How does everybody feel about the new B1G? Fast-forward to this time last year, I wouldn't have imagined half of the bullet points I named above.The only constant was that Indiana lost just about every week.
I, personally, am all in favor. There was a stretch of about 3-4 weeks when 4 different teams were in control of the Legends Division. The Leaders Division was not decided until the last week of the season.
I pose this question as an opposing fan. As UM fans would you guys prefer the days of "Big 2, Little 8" or do you like the way the conference is set up now with the additions of PSU, and Nebraska and the improvement of Wisc, Iowa, and MSU with the wildcards of NU, and Illinois tossed in?
