That conference up North known as the Big Ten is having second thoughts about the divisional names Legends and Leaders. I guess the crap has hit the fan and everyone is making fun of the names. I know I did. Conference commissioner Jim Delany said the two divisional names were picked to highlight the conference’s rich history.
Delany spoke about the public outrage of the names.
“I think we have enough experience with names, and expansion and development of divisions, to know that you never, rarely, get 90 percent approval rating,” Delany said during the interview. “But to get a 90 percent non-approval rating was, you know, really surprising.”
Delany went on to say he would rethink the names around the first of next year.
