Leaders and Legends dies a well-deserved death

ANDREW SELIGMAN (AP Sports Writer) wrote: PARK RIDGE, Ill. (AP) -- No more ''Legends.'' And no more ''Leaders.'' The Big Ten is giving them the boot and following a more conventional route for its division names. The conference is going with ''East'' and ''West'' instead and switching to a nine-game scheduling format after presidents and chancellors approved the moves on Sunday.

The new division alignments will begin in 2014 when Rutgers and Maryland join the conference, meaning ''Legends'' and ''Leaders'' will be a thing of the past. That will probably come as good news for fans who have criticized those names ever since the league unveiled them in 2010. To many, they were confusing and didn't help identify where teams play, but that won't be an issue any more.

Now if they could just figure out what to call their 14-team league instead of Big "10"...

It will be a lot nicer in some ways. Also, there was a time where then SEC east dominated. So, hopefully the Big 10 west can improve. It's going to be a little lopsided at first.

I have to say though that I feel dirty saying Pac-12.
