Default Re: Big Ten fan thread

ESPN says the conference is splitting into two divisions for 2011

Michigan, Nebraska, Iowa, Michigan State, Northwestern, Minnesota make one division

Ohio State, Penn State, Wisconsin, Purdue, Indiana, Illinois makes the other

In men's basketball, according to sources, the Big Ten is expected to play a 16-game conference schedule by taking a model similar to those used by the Big 12 and the Southeastern Conference. In those leagues, teams play each division opponent twice and then single games -- three at home and three on the road -- against teams in the opposing division.

However, the Big Ten has not had complaints with its current 18-game conference schedule and could stick with that format.

Michigan State's going to dominate their division every single year in hoops. At least Purdue and IU are playing twice every year again.
