I’m not a fan of the idea either. Unbalanced schedules make this impossible and this season we would have just gotten OSU - Michigan again a week later. Lame.

Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany: Conference is Discussing Getting Rid of Divisions
December 06, 2018
After missing out on the College Football Playoff for the second year in a row, the Big Ten is discussing the possibility of doing away with the conference's East and West divisions, commissioner Jim Delany said on Wednesday.
Yep.This would be unbelievably stupid.
All Delaney cares about is money. Rutgers and maryland were added for money alone...they bring absolutely NOTHING to the conference. The 9 game thing, while i don't ont mind it and I dont think it is a huge disadvantage, is all about TV.Yep.
Ohio State lost to Oklahoma last year and would have still made the playoffs if they hadn't gotten throttled by Iowa (the 3rd place team in the West).
All the conference has to do is have its champion not get smoked by a combined 60 points by mediocre teams from the other division the last two seasons.
