The Big Ten officially announced realignment starting in the 2014 football season, with teams divided into two seven-team divisions — East and West, mercifully replacing Legends and Leaders.

Since paying nearly a million dollars of taxpayer subsidized money to not play a mediocre east coast team I would think the MIAC is more in line with what the U is aiming for.

The challenge for Jerry Kill and staff is to recruit better players and win conference games. I'm not sure this new alignment will make a lot of difference. But since Mason, we're looking for any ray of hope. Go Gophs!

It doesn't matter where we are going to end up division wise with the football squad, we are still going to stink no matter where we land. That's the brutal honest truth.

The fee for removing a game was not subsidized nor is the athletic department. Facilities have benefited from tax dollars but the day to day operations are not subsidized. We have been cancelled several times and been paid too. we are ahead in that regard.

I LOVED the buyout of that Carolina game. Can't wait to get a much more fun game scheduled at the end of the year on a neutral field in a bowl game. I watched Coach Mason squads beat Oregon, Arkansas and Alabama at the end of the year. Now: who knows how long the newest East/West Divisions of the B1G will last. Most likely only until a couple of more programs are added to the Conference. In 2014 there will be 9 B1G Conference games. That will be a good thing! Once again, buying that Carolina game out was a stroke of brilliance and just look at all the non-Gopher fans who feel compelled and appear to be obsessed with that move. My only regret is that the buy out didn't cost a cool million... ; 9 )
