Poll: Big Ten division alignments

By Brian Bennett

Earlier today, Adam and I presented our proposals for Big Ten division realignment. Now we want to know which idea you favor.

To refresh your memories, here are our plans:

Adam's plan

East: Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State, Michigan State, Indiana, Rutgers, Maryland
West: Nebraska, Wisconsin, Iowa, Northwestern, Minnesota, Illinois, Purdue

Brian's plan

East: Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State, Maryland, Rutgers, Purdue, Indiana
West: Nebraska, Wisconsin, Michigan State, Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Northwestern

Don't like either of those? Well, there's another plan out there, first seen (at least by me) on the Big Ten Network website, called Inner-Outer. It goes like this:

Inner-Outer plan

Division A: Iowa, Maryland, Minnesota, Nebraska, Penn State, Rutgers, Wisconsin
Division B: Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Michigan State, Northwestern, Ohio State, Purdue

Which of these plans do you like the best? Vote now in our poll.
