Yesterday, the Big Ten officially announced what we all knew for at least a week. However, for those whoa re oblivious I’ll reiterate: new realignment and division names starting in 2014 and nine-game conference schedules starting in 2016. Most important about this college football news nugget or tidbit if you will, the Big Ten has laid to rest the HORRIBLE division names: Legends and Leaders.

With Rutgers and Maryland joining the conference, where’s Rebecca Martinson when you need here?

Moving on, the new division alignments are:
Big Ten East Division
Indiana, Maryland (along with Rebecca Martinson and her Delta Gamma sisters), Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Penn State, Rutgers
Big Ten West Division
Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Northwestern, Purdue, ...
