The divisions meant nothing. Let the best two teams compete for the Big 10 championship.

Absolutely. 2 best teams in. Divisions are hurting this conference on a national view.

I agree with Todd, teams like Nebraska (which the rebuild is looking strong as ever), Northwestern, and Iowa are going to be powerhouses next year and the other will make a run too.

They only want to do this to eliminate the chances for a team from the west beating out a team from the east.

It makes it less difficult to win a championship and spins up interest.

Why did I vote on this side? I like eight 16-team power conferences and a playoff among the champions of each. Each of the eight powers are divided into divisions. That is the best way. No more crying

You can't know who the 2 best teams are when all the teams don't play each other. Divisions give us a head-to-head... and typically that decides close races. The 'best' team concept is a delusion.

This year you would have had a rematch between OSU and the Michigan Team they hung 60+ points on. How would that make sense?

The big 12 doesn't have divisions & did it to help itself. We don't need to copy them out of frustration based on 1-2 year events. If this becomes an issue for several years it worth exploring.

Changing the division helps some teams and hurts others. Leave them alone. Changing them all the time makes it look like it's being manipulated.

It Wil be the same5 or 6 teams in the fi AL game e every year. Mid teams will get lost in the shuffle and season becomes meaningless early on. At least with divisions the chance to get to the final g

Bad knee jerk reaction brought about by OU getting in playoffs over OSU. I would likely eliminate a B1G team just as often. Don't look now but the East domination is changing.

It would be better to rebalance the divisions keeping some things like the OH/MI games. Also need to reallign schedules so they are better balanced and quit killing ourselves.

It would not favor rivalry. Conf. Championship would be in question.

I don't think that getting rid of the BIG 10 divisions will help with it playoff drought. Divisions help keep play more competitive and a lot more fun for the fans.

More teams playing for a championship increase the competition for all the teams in the league!

to me this system is working out good. to many teams in the conf. to not have the division. Also welcome Oklahoma with open arms. they will bring more money to the conference. Beware of texas tho

Without divisions you are not going to have a fair way of determining a championship game. There will be a time when the West is strong and the East is weak. Look at the Big 12 when they started.

Divisions are the best way to determine which teams should compete for the conference championship, and the winner should earn an automatic berth to the playoff which should be expanded to 8 teams.

Because I don't want to take another poll in a few years asking if they should switch back to divisions!

Otherwise you'll often have the top two team play each other twice per year and that's not fair to either program. For example: Do you want to watch Michigan and Ohio State play back to back weeks?

We do not need Texas the TV hog in this conference. Oklahoma maybe but not Texas. The divisions are fine teams need to work harder.

Divisions work well for football. If anythign expand to have 2 divisions of 8 or 9 teams teams each pull in texas and Oklahoma and ND play everyone on your side. Division winner goes to playoff

Absolutely not. Let's add two I LOVE the conference struggle within the divisions. It keeps the lower teams interested in the season. Good for the school, conference, and college football in genera

Or let's just eliminate conferences and everyone be independent. The divisions make for a smaller goal to achieve and strive for. The Big 10 continues to make huge errors, such as the first divisions.

Give him time to see if he can figure out a winning formula here. It's not like anyone else has been successful. Not much to lose. It's too bad there has been so little success. I think Husker fans would be overly supportive of the program especially with some improvement.

Let's face it. With a few rare exceptions, Husker basketball has never been better than mediocre at best. Let's give Fred plenty of runway to turn things around. We certainly don't have much to lose (pun not intended).

Do you think Trev Alberts was correct to push for the coaching staff changes before season end?

It was right to do sooner than later

Should have waited until season was over

The defense has made progress. The offense not so much. The real problem is Frost's dedication to Martinez. Adrian is a great guy, but his minuses exceed his pluses.

The production was there from those coaches. Better to make the decision then, so you can still have a positive impact with recruiting.

If you are not going to make new hires before the end of the season anyway, what was the purpose in firing them now? It will be interesting to see how the offense performs, but I can't see this as beneficial.
