Big Ten schools OK geographic realignment

Big Ten schools OK geographic realignment | Regional Geography | Scoop.it
The Big Ten on Sunday approved new East and West divisions for the 2014 season as well as a nine-game conference schedule beginning in 2016.
Seth Dixon's insight:

After San Diego State planned to join the Big East (before backing out), I had abandoned hope that regionally based rivalries and conferences would be a part of the conference realignment trend in college sports.  This division of the Big Ten schools into two divisions was based on 'pure geography' according to the B1G commission Jim Delany.  This is so much better than the Legends and Leaders divisions.
