  1. The B1G is stupid on football conference scheduling. Each year there are 9 games; 6 in division, 3 home and 3 away, that was easy. 3 against teams in the other division “cross-over” games. 1 for “big rivals”, i.e. Purdue v IU. Then an automatic “match” with 2 teams with “about” equal talent levels, based upon results from the previous season: #7 vs #7 and 6…#1 vs #1 and 2…etc. make the games “fun and exciting” between evenly matched teams. It isn’t “rocket science”!
