I reported this one for 670TheScore.com so the link takes you there. All I can say is thank goodness. Having Ohio State, Wisconsin, Purdue, Illinois and Indiana in the same division would completely contradict the competitive balance of the football divisions.
Both Jake Harris and I are participating in a series of roundtable discussions this season on the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's web site. The first edition involves a disussion on Wisconsin's offense. Enjoy.

Wisconsin will once again only play Minnesota and Iowa once.
Big blow to Wisconsin's recruiting in Chicago. Bo Ryan will have to find a good replacement to take over that area. May I suggest former Badger Tracy Webster? He just took an assistant job at Nebraska, but it would be hard to pass up an offer to return to Madison and recruit his hometown area of Chicago for the Badgers.
A reason why every team could win or lose the conference. Wisconsin is picked to win it all.
Thanks again, Adam, for taking the time to provide this insight regarding the 2010 Badgers football team!
This is pretty much what I expected, although I would still put them at No. 15 to start the season. Thoughts? Too high, too low?
I have to be honest, when news broke last week that Jimmy Collins was retiring as UIC's head basketball coach, the first thought that popped in my mind is that Wisconsin might lose assistant coach Howard Moore. Moore is a perfect candidate for this job. His Chicago roots have resulted in a number of great Illinois high school prospects at Wisconsin and those numbers are only increasing in the coming classes. There will definitely be more to come with this story.
