DO NOT WANT. Hopefully MSU is in same half as UM.
Maryland will be good though. They have too much support from Kevin Plank to not turn it around in a real conference. Florida State has had trouble sustaining good recruiting in the ACC and they probably had the best 20 year stretch in the history of college football.
Why? Put Michigan and Ohio State in the same division, and MSU and Wisconsin in the same division.
Get rid of protected cross-over game.
Sets up where MSU-UM, MSU-Indiana, OSU-UM, Indiana-Purdue, Northwestern-Illinois, Nebraska-Penn State, Wisconsin-Iowa, Wisconsin-Minnesota, and Iowa-Nebraska play every year.
Common theme on some other boards is to keep the divisions the same except ship Illinois to the Legends and add Maryland and Rutgers to the Leaders.
You always want your rival in the same division. Additionally MSU would be trading IU for UM in the protected cross-over game meaning a tougher schedule each year. In my opinion, MSU made out well in the last re-alignment. Keep UM rivalry in division, have a presence in Chicago each year with NW, and have one of the worst teams as protected rivals (although IU is getting better)
Would LOVE that move from a Spartan perspective.
