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.

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.

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?

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.

I gave up our 4 season ticket a few years ago because of the deficiencies in the South Stadium and then they announced the renovations. Guess I made the right call afterall.

Far too expensive. Special seating for the rich is not fair to the majority of season ticket holders.

I don't think the half billion price tag to renovate a 100 year old stadium makes fiscal sense right now. There are also more economical ways to improve south stadium without completely tearing it down and displacing 22K fans for 2 years.

They were arbitrary plans. No legitimate schematic or even a mockup. Hard to back "we can't describe it, just trust us."

I think it is good to slow down the project and wait until we starting wiinning as then demand will significantly increase. Also wait until the economy is doing better and interest costs decrease. To me it is being good financial stewards of the Atheltic Department finances. Phases are good.

because I thought that this may not be a good time to be spending that much, when we haven't even finished the last project. I think our AD will have to be able to read the money people, and the times. I thought that Trev A couldn't live with that.

Compensation has always been tied to market value. These athletes are worth far more than they're being compensated, and that's been the case for over a century. Hence, they've been ripped off. I support salary, salary cap, and education on how to invest it in 401k style accounts.

It has to fair across the board, from Fordham to Alabama. one monthly stipend for everyone, not just scholarship players. There has to be a limit on how many players all schools should abide by. Determine the national budget and every school must contribute.

They should be students and NOT professional athletes. If they want to get paid they can go pro. Personally, I believe they should cancel all sports in public schools and colleges though I love our Huskers.

Put myself through school in the 70's. They are getting for exchange of their athletic prowess what I had to work and save for. The two summers after high school I drove alfalfa trucks 12 hours a day 7 days a week. EARN IT!
