    Big Ten Division name contest

    Since it is a Holiday week I think Wednesday is the new Friday. Anyone have any great names for the new Big 10 Divisons. Here are the best I've heard so far:

    Cornbelt and Rustbelt

    Loosers and Liabilities

    Arrested and Convitced

    Re: Big Ten Division name contest

    I like the Corn/Rust belt one.

    Lakes/Plains
    Lakes/Rivers
    Michigan/Ohio State(might as well since they are the reason the Big 10 can't use East/West)

    Re: Big Ten Division name contest

    Nebraska and Ohio State-- those are the only two that are going to win anything.

    Lakes/Plains is probably the most realistic one I've heard of that wouldn't suck in my opinion.

    Schembechler/Hayes would basically be Michigan/Ohio State and that too wouldn't suck, in my opinion.

    My vote still goes for them to sell the naming rights and for the divisions to be named BestBuy/FedEx and for them to meet in the Hershey's Bowl B1GT2N Championship Game!

    The Ohio State and Michigan divisions. Color it any way you want, but that is what it is. The two premier athletic schools in the opposite divisions, the other lesser programs fill them out.

    Re: Big Ten Division name contest

    Is this just for fun? Because outside of jest this conversation is moot - it's already been labeled the "Leaders" and "Legends" divisions.

    When I heard this I thought for sure it was a joke, but no, they really did do it.

    They are thinking about changing it to something else.

    After recieving 90 percent negative feedback over the names I heard the conference may be open to renaming the conferences.

    For their sake I hope they do - it was their dumbest idea since letting kNU into the conference in the first place...

    The fact that they "went there" speaks volumes. You can't take back the stupidity and pompousness.
