    Opinions?

    1) Why are both Maryland AND Rutgers in the same division? Personally I would have split them up.
    2) The West Division is weak as shit, Wisconsin and Nebraska are the only contenders as far as I am concerned.
    3) Why get rid of Leaders and Legends? I've grown fond of them, though I guess they were mocked and not highly popular so I won't throw a huge stink about it.
    4) I wonder if, when the 2016 season rolls around, if we will automatically have 9 conference games like the article states or if EA will completely ignore this. If they do ignore this I will make the corrections as needed.

    The only thing that does make sense is we have a division that is geographically correct via timezone..

    Only thing I care about: Are we doing an all B1G dynasty next release?

    While I prefer teams to be set up geographically (while I know which teams are in which division since it was easy as it turned out all the Ms and Ns were in 1 division with Iowa, I agree with the article that I bet most fans can't remember), I prefer them to be balanced by power more and I think the new divisions are lopsided. Obviously this isn't unprecedented (the SEC West has been way stronger than the East for a while for example) I'd still prefer them to be more balanced.

    I'm game on one dynasty. I prefer it, especially if we go ahead and add in the changes to the conference. Maybe change around the West to be almost equal to the East.

    Maybe. I'm cool with how it is. I'm still unsure who I would want. It's between Maryland and Northwestern (eliminated Rutgers even though I love their helmets)

    I'm hoping that we do this, but only if I can be Ohio state.

    Are you sure you don't want us to add Notre Dame and be them?

    I'm just glad it got rid of that ridiculous leaders and legends divisions.

    1) geography my friend
    2) hmmm....three time defending champs are in the weak side? Excellent, easier road to the four/five/six peat....right?
    3) people hate legends and leaders.
    4) I doubt EA will auto adjust at this point.

    I did give Wisconsin credit as being one of the only two contenders in that division.

    I wouldn't mind that, everyone else has to be on board though.

    Way off topic but Matt Scott signed with JAX

    He will play at least one game at starting QB. Gus Bradley had Russell Wilson at Seattle. (even though Bradley was a D-Coordinator) I have zero confidence in Gabbert so I hope and think Scott will become the starter. Jacksonville is now on of my new favorite teams. Haha

    They have offensive weapons but lack any help on defense really

    Blackmon is suspended for Four games which hurts but MJD is a beast. He could be Marshawn Lynch like with Scott. Be imaginative people!!! And their defense got Cyprien (who I wanted the Bengals to get) who adds some safety depth and they also added some good pieces.

    Also Leveon Bell to the Steelers. Good and bad.
