    "Legends" and "Leaders" Here to Stay

    Looks like the Big Ten will be keeping our rather, ahem, unique divisional names.

    According to a poll conducted, 57% of fans now admit that they do, in fact, like the division names. And while 57% is not a massive majority, 76% of all fans felt the names were unique and 64% felt they honored the Big Ten's history.

    Personally, they've grown on me a little bit and I don't have quite the initial knee-jerk reaction that I did when they were initially announced. I think that in five years the division names will be commonplace. That is, unless we hit full-scale nuclear war with conference realignment.

    I don't care one way or the other on if they are changed, but I'm glad we are in the Legends division, which is way better than the Leader division.

    Honestly, to me, there is "Our" division and "their" division.

    I don't really mind them. It's unique. The B1G office just has to do a better job of promoting which teams are in which divisions. It's been about 7 years since the ACC divided into 2 divisions, and people still don't know which team is in which division. If that problem exsists for the B1G in 5 years, then someone didn't do their job of promoting the conference properly.

    It's really not that hard. The Legends are all the "M" and "N" teams with Iowa (Nebraska, Minnesota, Michigan, Michigan st., Northwester, Iowa), and the Leaders are everyone else (Illinois, Indiana, OSU, Penn St., Wisconsin, Purdue)

    The division names blew when they came out, they blow now, and they will continue to blow into the future.

    I've got the teams down...I'll just probably never keep which are legends and which are leaders.

    I don't even like using the names...it's so flipping pompous it just blows my mind.

    THIS. Imagine the fit people would throw if the SEC division names were Champions and Winners.

    It's not hard to remember that we're in the Legends division.

    Devaney, Osborne, Gill, Rozier, Rodgers, Frazier, Crouch, Suh, Glover, etc., etc., etc.,....Nebraska history is full of LEGENDS.

    And to be honest, Legends is the better name of the two.

    I think the SEC's divisions should be called "Bribery" and "Oversigning"

    Guess I should have read the entire thread before responding.

    If I remember correctly you are a NWMST Bearcat guy right? That's a potential ignore right there.
