It's geographical and it still does its best to maintain rivalries. Protected crossovers aren't possible with that.
This would be football only divisions. Basketball divisions aren't really necessary. Play the other 19 teams in a 20 game schedule with one protected rivalry game that you play twice.

I kinda figured out a way and I actually am using the Detroit PSL Playoff format. Let me attempt to explain.
For the sake of the argument, let's say the B1G adds Cincinnati, UConn, North Carolina, Duke, Syracuse and Virginia to get to 20.
Here are your divisions-
Instead of a championship game, you seed the four division champions and play a B1G Tournament. Semifinals hosted by the higher seeds and the championship at Indy.
Yes, you would only have 11 guaranteed regular season games and a maximum of 13 if you advance to the B1G Tournament Championship, but tough shit. No one wants to watch OSU vs Kent State. No one.
The Game will still be the final regular season game, but it will be the 3rd Saturday of November and not the week of Thanksgiving like it has been since 2010.
|1 hour 8 min ago||Rescue UConn and Cincinnati||
Rescue UConn and Cincinnati from that joke league they are stuck in.
Cincinnati would be so sweet soley for the fact that OSU would have to deal with an in-state pest like we do.
UConn, while they are the shits at football (for now), they only strengthen the Basketball AND they have a Hockey team. Plus, it would be funny to see UConn vs Edsall. The circle of weird.
Only problem is that Michigan would go from playing Iowa every 15 years to 25 years.

The attendance is going to be bad for this for any game not including Michigan.
I'm gonna keep waiting for the prices to drop. LLGA will be easy for the taking. GLI will have better attendance.

Syracuse Football might have to vacate wins. Here are the years they would have to vacate:
GERG was the head coach for those 2005-2006 seasons.
Talk about the definition of a loser program. They cheated and still sucked.

Announced attendance is not accurate. It's called official, but it's never real.
There is no way they had over 2,000 people at that Friday game with PSU last week.
Spare me the football argument, okay. The fanbase pretty much declared war on the athletic department. Protests and planned planned White Out Dave Outs.

That was way back in October. The B1G isn't much better than that league, either.
|16 hours 39 min ago||BGSU is also in a conference||
BGSU is also in a conference of teams that no one else wanted.
I don't buy any teams from the "WCHA". Not when that conference has the Alaska schools and Alabama freaking Huntsville in it.
|16 hours 47 min ago||There's no way in hell they||
There's no way in hell they can drop the sport now. The B1G exists in Hockey because there are 6 teams.
I wouldn't be opposed to the B1G adding affiliate members like they do in Men's Lacrosse with Johns Hopkins. Bring in North Dakota, Miami, Denver and Colorado College. Then change the name of the conference to the WCHA.
PSU will reach a Frozen Four before OSU does again.
A big problem is that they don't have an actual hockey arena. This is where they played until the k-mart arena was built:
Yeah. No, I'm not kidding. They even played a CCHA Tournament series in 2013 there due to a scheduling conflict. High school wrestling apparently has more priority there than their actual university-sponsored Hockey program.
Their fans are an absolute embarrassment. They don't even attempt to support their team. They already curtain off the upper bowl at their cavernous arena, but they had to tarp off the endzone seating last week against PSU because literally no one was there. Even their student section was empty save the front row. I watched on BTN, I'm not exaggerating.
I mean, it's not like they were playing Alabama-Huntsville. It was a B1G team.

Michigan is 19-2. Their two losses come against ranked teams in walkoffs.

Michigan WBB is historically one of if not the worst program in the B1G.
It's KBA's third year. Michigan will have reached the postseason in all 3 of them. You have to be patient. This is a program that has never made more than 3 straight NCAA Tournaments.

4 points for Goree. That's the kicker right there.
It's vital for her to be playing well. Hopefully this can make a run and win the WNIT and give Michigan its first championship in program history.
They have the team to do it. The problem is that they aren't playing well. Hopefully they draw a team that isn't very good and rout them to boost their confidence.
|1 day 2 hours ago||Honestly baffles as me as to||
Honestly baffles as me as to why Sue Guevara resigned. She resigned after one bad season at Michigan in the early 2000s.
She had them at 22-8 and SECOND, SECOND PLACE!! in the B1G in 1999-00. She was a miracle worker. At one point Michigan was ranked #12 in the country.
She was the Mark Rosen of WBB.
There had to be something going on behind the scenes. A real shame she wasn't brought back after Borseth split.
|1 day 2 hours ago||Borseth leaving Michigan to||
Borseth leaving Michigan to become the head coach at a mid-major tells you all you need to know about this program's history/prestige.
Michigan's winningest head coach Sue Guevara is the head coach at CMU.
You cannot expect championships from this program. Not yet. Need consistency and stability.
Let's just be happy this team is AT LEAST making the postseason.

What an absolute debacle. Blown out by a terrible Illinois team they beat earlier this season and now this disaster against a team that Michigan swept and is playing with 5 scholarship players.
There is no reason whatsoever this should be happening. This Michigan team is a tournament team that has completely fell apart at the worst possible time for reasons unknown.
They will not win a WNIT game if they play like this.

They moved the M Lax game vs #20 Brown inside Oosterbaan on Sunday instead of it being at The Big House due to weather concerns.
I suspect they'll be doing the same with W Lax next week. As of right now, they play Virginia Tech at The Big House on Wednesday...... At night.....

Because I want Michigan to clobber Minnesota.
I want it all this season. The B1G, the B1G Tournament, the NCAA National Championship.
This team is more than capable of doing it.
