Those were the great revelations of schools in Indiana after Wednesday night Big Ten listing of how the two divisions will be after the 2011 season.
IU athletic director Fred Glass said the Hoosiers got what they wanted in order to protect the old oak bucket rivalry with the Boilermakers. He said he did not know the game would remain the final regular season until a conference call Wednesday morning.
Glass also said that if he had to choose, I’d choose to be in the same division.
“I think it will be fun for fans of Indiana have a sort of race for the title every year,” he said. “I think something is much greater than the other.”
Purdue coach Danny Hope said that the alignment of the division “is great for football and the Nation Purdue Boilermaker. Protecting Bucket game against Indiana for the last weekend of the regular season is very important to our fans, and us as well as keeps the game against Illinois trophy every year. ”
Purdue athletic director Morgan Burke was also pleased with the results.
“I’m happy IU is in our division,” he said. “I think it’s a good division.”
Despite the divisions have not yet received official names, IU and Purdue are merged into one from Illinois, Ohio State, Penn State and Wisconsin. The other division has Michigan, Nebraska, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota and Northwestern.
Each season the two schools of Indiana will face five other teams in their division. In addition, IU will play Michigan State each year, and Purdue will face Iowa on an annual basis.
The teams will play two other opponents outside their division on a rotating basis for two years. In the first two years, IU will play Northwestern and Iowa, and Purdue will face Michigan and Minnesota.
