    Big Ten to reconsider division names

    In the humorous news of the day...

    http://espn.go.com/college-football/...im-delany-says

    Delany said he was a "little surprised" by the backlash when the division names were announced.

    "I'm not sure it was a national survey [of people that didn't like the names], but people who hit the 'send' button," Delany said. "I don't take umbrage to negative reaction. I don't necessarily change when I hear it. I think on the other hand, we said we would test-market it, and we have for a couple of years. We have the opportunity to look at it again. I'm sure we will. Whether or not we change or not is to be determined. I don't have any presumption that we'll change on it, but that doesn't mean we're not looking at it.

    I think the "Has Beens" and the "Overrated" divisions would be good.

    terrible division
    even worse division

    It's about time. Those division names have been nothing if not a laughingstock since the day they were announced.
    I have yet to figure out why common sense and common courtesy are called common.

    East/West or North/South works for most conferences. But I doubt they make such an easy decision like that.

    "Haughty" and "Conceited" would make good names for the divisions.

    It's about time, Delany thought he was being original by changing it up. It turns out he was just wrong.

    Since there are already 12 and soon to be 14 teams it is also time to let go of the Big 10 name. something with Midwest in the name or maybe Big 14.
