Big Ten Unveils New Logo, Division Names

So, the Big Ten unveiled its' new logo today that will go into effect starting in 2011 when Nebraska moves in from the Big 12.

Notice how easy it can go from B1G Ten to B16 Ten, leaving the door open for future expansion without another major logo overhaul?

The new divisions will be called Legends and Leaders.

Legends Division

Michigan, Nebraska, Iowa, Mich St, Minn, Northwestern

Leaders Division

Ohio State, Penn St, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Purdue

A few fans who really are not happy with the changes (the logo and especially the division names) have had a reaction similar to this:

Trophy Names

The Stagg-Paterno Trophy will go to the Big Ten title game winner.

The Grange-Griffen Trophy will go to the title game MVP.

There are 18 new trophies total, and you can view all of them over on the Big Ten Network's website.


So, what does everyone else think?

The trophy names are actually pretty cool, and the logo is OK, but I'm not sure the division names are all that great...

Then again, I do like that they didn't just cop-out and call them East-West, or North-South.

However, if they truly wanted the division names to reflect on the history of the conference and the teams of yesteryear that used to be good, along with the future of the conference and the teams that are good now and going forward, then the LEGENDS Division should have been Michigan, Nebraska, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, & Purdue and the LEADERS Division should have been Ohio State, Wisconsin, Penn State, Iowa, Michigan State, & Northwestern.

  1. Epic failure in every way. The logo & the division names. The divisions are jacked up anyway, so don't even get me started on those. The people running this conference are absolute clowns. I wish Ohio State would secede and go Independent.
