Hate the divisional names as well. I'm a Buckeye, but one rivalry I'm sad to see diminished by the alignments is Wisky-Iowa.

Figures that the two teams that always give Ohio State trouble (Wisconsin and Illinois) are in their division.

"Lakes" and "Plains" would make a ton of sense, especially if/when the superconferences come into being and if the Big Ten picks up teams like Kansas, Oklahoma, Mizzou and/or Texas. Completely hypothetical at this point, but with everyone in the Big XII trying to get out from under Texas' (and to a lesser extent, ESPN's) thumb, its bound to happen sooner or later.

+1 for you.

I actually like this idea. It isn't generic like a directional name or stupid like leaders and legends.

Here is your last decade in the BCS era

31-47 = 39.7% chance they will win.

39.7% is the stuff legends are made on.

Is that better?
10 years is not a century...

In all honesty, the Big 10 has to travel to SEC and Pac 12 territory to play teams from each respective conference.

Winning 2 out of 5 in what are basically road games against elite talent isn't too bad, especially since the B1G teams have/had a longer break than their opponents.
