With the addition of Nebraska into the Big Ten Conference in July 2011, the Big Ten expanded to 12 teams. The purpose of this move was so that the conference could split up into two divisions and have a Big Ten Championship game at the end of the season between the two division winners.
While the Nebraska addition was made primarily for football, I think it would be interesting to look at how the basketball divisions would stack up if divided between the Leaders and Legends. Only a handful of conferences use divisions for basketball, and the Big Ten has never been one of them.
While this is purely hypothetical and will not happen anytime soon, if ever, I decided to split up the divisions and rank both the teams and players in each to determine which would be stronger during the upcoming season.
