Wyoming Joe talking about his fears for IU and Purdue being in the Big Ten East with OSU, UM, MSU and PSU in the Indy Star. Honestly I feel like this may be sour grapes from the former Boiler coach, but you must admit facing those (historically) 3 big teams each year would be a battle. However looking back at last year's record against the proposed teams we went 3-1 (didn't play Penn State last year), so it's not like we can't beat the teams. There is also talk of increasing the number of conference games to 9. Who knows? I just wanted to pass this on to Boiler faithful as well as get initial thoughts.
P.S. Also not to mention during basketball season (slightly less significant) being in the same division with Sparty, OSU and IU (if and when they eventually turn it around) will lead to some tough battles securing the one spot in the BTT.
