Looks like we'll still play Iowa every year.....I like the East -West Divisions

At first glance, I like the way the divisions shake out and it seems to make since geographically. I'm especially pleased that Wisconsin and Iowa are back in the same division, which is the way it should be. Plus, the yearly game with Nebraska, as you pointed out, would stay, and I feel like that could be a real solid developing tradition moving forward.
We like it mostly on our site.........especially playing Wisconsin every year, I just hope they scrap the idiotic Legend and Leaders names for East-West
Purdue will add a better "spoiler team" to the east than the west instead of Indiana. And I agree TOTALLY that the Legends and Leaders division names stink to high heaven! Whoever came up with that as great branding names should be crucified (in keeping with the spirit of the Easter season). East-West was obvious from Day One, but they got a bit too carried away with the fairness/balancing act as well as mis-reading the REAL rivalry games and the thinking of the fans. East/West makes as much sense now as it did then.
Oh my gosh, they couldn't breakup the 'Natural' rivalry of IOWA vs Purdue!
Oh the humanity!
LOL That was a joke, when BigTen called Purdue Iowa's 'natural rival'.
What a freakin joke...........Delany is such a suck-up to Meechgain & the cheaters of Columbus.
I hope we get Purdue. Plus, Purdue does have a rivalry game with Illinois (the Purdue Cannon).
