We all knew it was coming, but the Big Ten has made it official: The B1G will go to its East and West divisions starting in 2014. The divisions will look like this:
East: Maryland, Rutgers, Penn State, Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State, Indiana.
West: Purdue, Illinois, Northwestern, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska.
Along with this announcement came the announcement that the B1G will move to a nine-game conference season beginning in 2016. With this, the East teams will have five conference home games in even-numbered years. To me, these divisions are way off. The East looks to be a much tougher division, and I would like to hear someone say otherwise. For now, let’s wait to see how these divisions play out in the near future.no comments
