Do you think change the date of the game will take away from the hype? If so, why? When they add the 12th team should OSU U of M be in the same conference?

Yes, same conference, I think it should be similar to Texas-OU.

Yeah, Big Ten East and Big Ten West.

East: Ohio State, Michigan, Mich. St., Penn St. Indiana, Purdue
West: Illinois, Northwestern, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Nebraska

Pretty even and pretty fair......let the games begin!!!

Is it me or am I the only one who thinks the game doesn't need anymore hype? Every year it's blown up to be the biggest thing since WWII and it for the most part has turned out to be a real yawner. I prefer lowkey yet intense rivals like when any combination of Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin or Michigan State play.

To me those games are not low-key, but Michigan vs. Ohio State is the best rivalry in NCAA football.

I'd like to see PSU-Nebraska the same day as OSU-Wolverines.

Have one game at noon the next at 3.

Like to see Wisconsin versus Iowa the same day. They could play at 6.

I think they should try to preserve it as the last game of the year. However some of the most heated rivarly games are midseason - Texas vs OU, UF vs UG, USC vs UCLA ect. Plus the history of UofM and OSU sometimes either team could spoil the other teams trip to a BCS bowl. But dont be scared of change.

I think it should still be split East and West, but there can be exceptions if necessary, like Penn St. and Nebraska, etc. There wouldn't be as many Ohio State vs. Wisconsin matchups, and that's a fun rivalry....similarly Michigan and Wisconsin or Penn St. and Iowa. But I say you play everyone in your side of the division and play 2 wild card teams from the other side every year.
