"Illinois then would shift from the Leaders to the Legends Division."
I guess I can't be terribly mad they just moved Kansas over onto our side.
Maryland's Board of Regents voted Monday to accept an invitation to join the Big Ten and begin competition in the conference in the 2014-15 academic year.

I'm cool with Illinois. I want the Chicago area recruits to see us kicking Illinois' from end zone to end zone every year and signing with us.
Know your Old Big 12 teams
Illinois = Mizzou Mizzou = Illinois
Mizzou actually won a few games, not sure if Illinois will ever get off the launch pad.
I sort of missed playing Kansas, I guess this will have to do.
Too bad they didn't use this as an excuse to change those stupid f'ing division names.
I don't mind Illinois. They were actually in the Rose Bowl a few years ago. I think a Mark Sanchez led USC team crushed them. They are pretty much Missouri. A school with pretty good in-state talent that can't keep any of it. If they do move to our side, Ohio State should punch their ticket to the title game every year. Wisconsin is the only team that will put up a fight annually, where we have Michigan, Michigan State and Iowa.

Michigan has a pretty firm grip right now on a top talent coming out in the Chicago suburbs. They have pulled some very nice linemen out of my area the last two years. Frustrating to see. Illinois on our half of the conference would help normalize and familiarize the program with kids from that area.
I don't want Wiscy. I know Penn St is down right now but that makes for a REALLY tough division when you have MSU / Mich / PSU / AND Wiscy to compete with. Ill happily scalp some Illini instead.

Illini not as strong as Mizzou, and that's okay. Do the cross-over games stay? This actually will help Nebraska in recruiting as we'll be the west coast team. All of a sudden our weather can be a positive.
Who's the duffus that created that map? No South Dakota? That's where I grew up. What a slam.

Haha. Apparently no love for South Dakota. I agree that Mizzou is better right now and I also think it will help recruiting. It is going to be ridiculous in the other division though. Ohio State will have Wisky to compete with. We will have Michigan, Michigan State, Iowa and Northwestern.
