PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
How many actually know or even care if OSU is a legend or a leader? To me it's been the division with OSU and the division with UM.
Yes and thats why TTUN should be in the North Division and the Buckeyes represent the South Division.
B1G-NORTH: TTUN, MSU, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Northwestern, Illinois, Rutgers.
B1G-SOUTH: Ohio St., Penn St., Nebraska, Iowa, Purdue, Indiana, Maryland.
Fair? sensible? I think so. How about it Jim Delaney?
"Get him a body bag, Yeah!"
Rutgers, Maryland, and penn state will be in the same division.
I'm sure they paid some marketing consultant big bucks to come up with that! Imagine a bunch of folks sitting in a conference room evaluating the options and all agreeing that those were the best choice for the division names. Corporate Branding run amok!
Don't worry, they'll pay a different group of marketing consultants who will decide that it's best to have corporate America sponsor them. OSU will soon be winning the Rotel-Velveeta divsion and square off against the winners of the Barbasol-Rawlings divsion in the Orbitz.com/Trojan condoms/Miller High Life - Big Ten (12+2) Championship game.
Legends and Leaders just opens the B1G up for the obvious jokes. I really liked some of the other proposed names like "Erie", "Great Lakes", etc. Something with a historical or geographical reference.
Perhaps the Burning River Division and the Edmund Fitzgerald Division, given the B1G's recent performance/reputation.
How about the Dortmunder Gold(pants) division and the Lake Erie Monsters division?
A little Ohio-centric, but I'm OK with that. Also, I prefer the Burning River Pale Ale to Dortmunder Gold, but both are good.
Give me an Edmund Fitzgerald because I love a delicious handcrafted porter.
It didn't even occur to me that I was naming Great Lakes brews at first, just unfortunate events in the regional history. All are good choices both for consumption and division names.
I hope this ends. I still don't know which we are in.
