Big Ten to reveal division names on Monday

The Big Ten just announced it will reveal its division names Monday at noon ET.

Let the naming carousel begin. I've always favored "Schembechler" and "Grange" divisions but that causes immediate consternation with Ohio State. Maybe, "God" and "D-----" division names would be more appropriate considering Bo and Woody's salty language.

Anyway the suggestions are pouring in via Twitter.

Block and Tackle

Three Yards and A Cloud of Dust

Wine and Cheese (or is it Whine and Cheese?)

BCS Works and Little Brothers of the Rich

Fields and Furnaces

Rust and Corn

Rust and Belt

Lakes and Plains

Snow and Drift

Not and Expanding

Nebraska and Others Also Playing

Murderers Row East and Murderers Row West

Big and Slow

Not Texas and Not Notre Dame

SEC East Jr. and SEC West Jr.

$ and %

Pure Prairie League and Great Flyover

Windfall and Bowl Split

Autoworkers and Cropdusters

Corn and Beef

Pasa and Dena

Black and Blue




Keep 'em coming. I'll update before noon ET

Should have been the Power I (with Illinois, Iowa and Indiana after minor realignment) and Smashmouth.
Or Money Grab and Corporate Sellout
Best yet: Boring and Predictable

Huge Big 10 and OSU fan here... WHAT THE $%&@ were they thinking!!!!! This is terrible. Horrible. Utterly disappointing. Leaders and Legends... 2 named trophies. and that took this long. for that.. Jesus H Christ... Delany thinks these are just vessels and after time people will either appreciate them or forget about them... No.. this is lame as hell... is now... will be in 20 years. Leaders and Legends... The awards are cheesy but they are once a year awards.. People may get used to them and after 10 or so seasons may be able to rattle off all the names... But Leaders and Legends will be in peoples language ALL YEAR EVERY YEAR. Embarrassing.

I think this sums up Dodd and his article


I was thinking more in terms of Ass and Hole.

I agree, Lakes and Plains or Lakes and Rivers would have been better.  I'm not sure I like the hyphenated names for the awards.  They make the conference sound schizo, but at least they are thought provoking.

Whoever posted the Plains and Lakes ought to go work for that marketing company.  You could be the president.  Probably the best one i have heard yet for division names.

And Big Ten fans like to call the SEC cocky.  Leaders and Legends, are you serious?  The worst part of all of this are all of the two name awards out there.  Can't you guys just have a coach of the year award, without putting two coaches names in front of it?  How about your conference championship game, must it also have two coaches names in front of it.  I don't think the terms "Big Ten Coach of the Year" was taken, but the Big Ten chooses not to use that name.  I do not fault the fans on this site for the goofiness, but please do not try and defend it.  It is what it is, lame.

Don't like the new logo, the division names or the decision to not expand further.  North and South or East and West would be better if they hadn't messed up the alignment.  Oldest and most played rivalry in college football, Minnesota vs. Wisconsin.  One is a legend the other a leader???? huh
