Legends and Leaders
Over the weekend, the Big Ten pulled off a heady play when the league leaked word that it’s mercifully dumping the much-maligned Legends and Leaders divisional monikers in favor of geographical names.
The Big Ten needs to dump the names. For one thing, more than two months into the season, I can’t even remember which division is which – they sound almost exactly the same – and have to look it up to remind myself every time.
Of course the names “Legends” and “Leaders” have been poorly received by fans and critics. The two new Big Ten division names are uninspiring and uncreative, at best.
