Proposed B1G Divisions

ESPN just published an article on the newly proposed Big Ten Divisions: East and West. They say just take a ruler and divide it 7 and 7. So the West division will be Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, Illinois, Purdue, Northwestern, and Wisconsin. Then the East division would be Maryland, Rutgers, Penn State, Michigan State, Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio State. Now speaking just on terms of football and basketball, that seems like the East division is much more stacked than the west. For example, even on a good year, we could end up fifth out of 7 in basketball behind IU, UM, MSU, and OSU. It would provide some great games though, and hopefully some rivalries in the future. We could also end up fifth out of 7 in a very good football season behind OSU, MSU, UM, and PSU. Even though it seems like we'd be in an extremely tough group of 7, I kinda like it because it'd provide some great games and definitely help the SOS in terms of postseason basketball resumes. Thoughts? Also, what do you guys think will be done in terms of scheduling? Football play the other 6 in your division plus 2 from the other each year. And then basketball could be playing the other 6 in your division twice a year, and the other 7 once a year for a total of 19 conference games if the league officials wanted that.
