You are worthless.
Big Ten makes it official: East/West Divisions & 9 gm schedule
there will now be 6 opponents in your division, not 5
Have fun landing 4th place in the division every year, Sparty. It's a tough job, but someone's got to hold down the fort at the Little Caesar's Bowl every year.
geez can we go to the west side
This is all good for us.
Remember when we were going to have to play MSU as the last game of the regular season, while Nebraska / Penn State and Ohio State / Wisconsin became the new Big Ten headliner games?
Yeah, I'm pretty pleased with where we ended up.
The BIG East Division is the new Big 12 South.
And Nebraska is once again on the outside looking in.
With a lot more money this time.
With the possibility of only having 4 home games in a season, I think that it probably means that we are done scheduling road games in the non conference schedule every other year. This also probably means more games against MAC foes at the Big House, since money talks.
Cool. We're already one step closer to the SEC.
How fitting. The game before they unveil the new divisions on BTN is the game where Iowa beats Sparty on the last play of the game.
edit: I thought I saw there was supposed to be something on btn. I guess not. Oh well. Still nice to see them lose like that.
On a personal note.... I enjoy road trips West more than road trips East... I really enjoy taking over Northwesterns Stadium on a fall day and was hoping to eventually make it to Camp Randall stadium and the long trek to Nebraska.
Wait until you see how we take over College Park.
UM, MN, WI, MSU, PSU, Rutgers and NU in the North Division.
OSU, NE, IA, IL, IN, Purdue, Maryland in the the South Division.
Though UM would have a inter-division game every year against OSU while half of the north would not play OSU in a particular season...so MSU, PSU, NU or WI could ease into a division title at times.
Even though the East at this point in time and for the foreseeable future will be the dominate division, I like that the way to the big 10 championship will be through the Michigan - OSU game.
In a few years it will be the far more better game then the B1G championship game. It may come to the point where the winner of the UM-OSU game will rest their starters in the B1G championship game so that they will be fresh for the NC playoff run!
