So with the rumors coming out that Rutgers and Maryland will join the leaders with Illinois joining the legends does that mean the end of the Illibuck trophy? Obviously, the Big Ten would be dumb to make Illinois a protected crossover to preserve the rivalry. (assuming teams are still allowed one protected corssover) Also, I have never really saw Illinois as our second rival, I always kind of thought that the rival rank go as follows:
1) That team up North
2b) Penn State
What do you all think? If we play illinois every 4 years with the new division change does the rivalry die out or will the Big Ten find a way to preserve it?
