    – Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Nebraska, and Penn State are the “Legends” while Illinois, Indiana, Ohio State, Penn State, Purdue, and Wisconsin are the “Leaders.”

    woah woah woah woah everybody!!! how could you forget just northwestern?

    Wow, who knew my son's first grade class at Boalsburg Elementary had a contest to name the Big 10 divisions …….. and won? I just wish he had told me about it. Heard it just beat out the names Pikachu and Squirtle by two votes.

    Terrible, just terrible.

  3. Piss poor league names. If you can't geographically title the divisions just go with "Woody" w/ tOSU and "Bo" w/ Michigan division names. That is still boasting legendary, traditional, leaders right?? Full Disclosure: I am a Buckeye fan who thought the most important thing about the divisions needed to be preserving the last game of November always being Ohio State-Michigan.

    As long as the trophies are worth looking at and displaying I guess that's all that matters for the two division winners. Still B10 Championship is going to be one of the most anticipated 2011 games in college football next year no matter who the match-up is.

    • As a Michigan fan, I completely agree with your first paragraph and decided when I heard the division names that I wouldn't call them anything but "Bo" and "Woody."

    Any credibility Delaney obtained acquiring Nebraska has just been lost, and then some. And Paterno's name on the championship trophy? wow, I can't believe that goes over real well in Big10 country, and this coming from a Penn State alum and fan. Bo and Woody deserve to be there somewhere. Penn State didn't build the Big Ten.

    Not sure I could come up with worse division names. Block and Tackle divisions? Zook and Fitgerald (insert any coaches name there)?

  5. pentagram are obviously a bunch of HACKS. collegiate block letters – check. terrible blue color – check. did we spell it right? – check. make the "i" a "1" and the "g" a "0" – check. We are so clever. Done! Success! would be shocked if this took any more than 5 minutes to create. this logo is an embarrassment. look at the new pac 10 logo and tell me how this stacks up.

    paterno for the championship trophy is a joke. love penn state in the big 10, but they've only been in the conference for 20 years.

    I hope Pentagram didnt pay the Michael's for coming up with that. My 5 yr. old daughter could have done better with her crayons.

  7. The logo consisting of the word "Big" and the number "10" written in crayon by a six-year old came in a close second.

  8. Greise-Brees? Is that what blows through a Krispy Kreme donut shop?!?!?

  9. You've got to be KIDDING, right????? I can't believe we couldn't have come up with something better than this?? Get into the 2,010's people. This logo reminds me of designs I was doing in the 60's. Hardly creative enough for 2011.

  10. I feel like the awards are ultimately to profit from an awards show on the Big Ten Network…but maybe I am wrong. No mention of such a program yet but wasn't the BTN made for something like that(eventually)?? I mean it would get more viewers than most of their content outside of live broadcasts of ball games.

  11. Absolutely terrible names, logo and Division lineups. This is what happens when there are consulting firms and committees making decisions. Oh, did I forget lawyers.

  12. Nicholas Gerlach says:

    I can't wait to see who is the leader of the leaders next year.

  13. Disappointed says:

    logo + division names = crap.

  14. Is this a joke??? Ha ha ha! Jim Delany just made the Big Ten a punchline. That is of course unless the Pac-12 goes with the division names Awesome and Rad. How do you screw up something as simple as division names??? For all Big Ten fans, I'm sorry. A crazy guy is your commissioner!

  15. I almost barfed when I heard they thought it was clever to make the "IG" suggest 10. Like we wouldn't get the message from "BIG TEN" already? I suppose there was even deeper thinking not yet explained that all caps would reinforce "big" Ha-ha
