Without a doubt the Big Ten front office is sitting slight hoping that all the fans and all the media forget about the debacle that unfolded after last year around the division names and focus on something else (like NCAA violations).
Well, I don't know about you but time is not something that will heal what is wrong with "Legends and Leaders." It's not innovative, it's a mockery. I urge all to not forget how much we collectively hated this idea. Once the 2011 season approaches let them hear it again. The Big Ten tried to be unique and came off pompous and arrogant. They avoided the expected geographical organization because it wasn't perfect. NEWSFLASH!!! The Dallas Cowboys are in the NFC East and tell me who cares? Furthermore, the new PAC 12 alignment has Stanford in the North division while... wait for it... Utah and Colorado (I'm pretty certain are further North than Palo Alto) are further North. Most people probably didn't even notice and why, because it's not a big deal. No one is talking about it. Everyone is too busy talking about how stupid the Big Ten division names are.
Get the petitions out!! I was born and raised in Big Ten country, I'm an alum of Penn State, I love my conference, and I refuse to be the laughing stock of the college football landscape.
