Only Legends And Leaders Are Wanted

I don't know if I'm supposed to laugh or cry at this.
Jesus Christ, this is just getting sad.  The Big Ten has been a punchline for awhile now but have gradually been building it's reputation back up over the past few years.  It's more than just Ohio State in football now.  It's more than just Sparty in hoops, too.  Hell, the football portion of the conference could be better than it has been in over a decade now.

But then Jim Delaney unleashes this new stupid logo.  And then he announces what the new divisions are to be called.  Forget about the fact that the separation of schools makes ZERO SENSE at all.  No, don't worry about that.  Why would you want to have East and West divisions when you could have LEGENDS and LEADERS divisions?  Who wouldn't want that?

This is just stupid.  I have yet to find anyone who likes either of these Delaney ideas.  I don't find it cute that the "I" is a number 1 or that the "G" resembles a ten.  It looks like something that a kindergarten class could do.  The Big Ten will now become LEGENDS in the field of embarrassment and LEADERS in the realm of retardery.  And for all of you BCS haters out there, just remember that it's Jim Delaney who is one of the main proponents against a playoff.

I think the logo is worse than the names of the divisions...and they are bad too. But, I really don't give a fuck about any of it. Yeah, people can make fun of it and old people can get all up in arms about it...but, I care about an infinite more about what goes on on the field than bitching about a logo or the names of divisions. They should have definitely taken a long look at the PAC-10's new logo, because it's bad ass.

By the way...great off-season the Yankees just had.

Wilbon said on PTI last night that they should have the Schembechler and Hayes divisions and I thought that that was a good idea.

Derrell Johnson-Koulianos is both a legend and a leader in the field of drug dealing wide receiving.

Yeah, not very good but it feels like that tardbilly wanted to go back to Philly all along. We'll be fine though.

Drew said...

They said they didn't want to do the Hayes and Schembechler, because it was "too exclusive" to the two schools. Really, the thing they have fucked up the most is still putting Michigan and OSU in different divisions. That's the thing that makes absolutely zero sense.

The BTN turned out to be one of the greatest $$ ideas ever. Adding Nebraska was a grand slam. Almost everything else they do is retarded and leaves you scratching your head.

Yup...the Yankees will be fine. Let the Sergio Mitre and Ivan Nova era begin!

WTF!

GMoney said...

You act like they are just going to give up now. There are other options out there. I think that they should look at Brandon Webb personally.

Yeah, Delaney didn't want the divisions to sound too pro- Michigan and Ohio State but he had no problem setting up the divisions that way. The guy is a turd.

Big 10 fans and Big 10 haters have all come together to point and laugh at this debacle. A marketing company made a shitload of money to put this shit together. It looks like they hired 4th graders to come up with genius ideas and drawings. The old division x and o were better than this!

I like how the logo is Carolina Blue and Delaney is a UNC Grad.

G$...Have fun with Brandon Webb...he's pitched four more innings than you and I have over the last two seasons.

GMoney said...

I think that Delany should have hired Ace to do the logo. After what he did to the site banner, I have no doubt that he could do something better than this.

Drew, I'd rather go there than trade for Greinke or be the team dumb enough to sign Pavano.

Drew said...

They probably could have done "Jim's" and "Tressel's", since the whole conference is pretty much his biatch.

I would think even if Pavano was willing to pitch for free in NY, that he would be unwelcome after all of the money he basically stole during his time there.

Like the Yankees aren't gonna make the playoffs now. Fuckin please.

Did anyone hear the Joe Paterno clip on the Herd today? Fuckin hysterical. The radio DJ was shouting as loud as he could into the phone and all you could hear in the background was Paterno saying how he couldn't hear the guy's questions. This is a man who says he will be coaching that team for the next 4 years at least. Something needs to be done about this.

Drew said...

Iceman....making the playoffs is not the Yankees goal...it's winning it all. Right now they are a worse team than the Red Sox and I'm not sure any team can beat the Phillies rotation in a series.

I have a weird feeling that Paterno may call it quits after this bowl game, regardless of what he has been saying. Either way, he's a selfish fuck. They have like three verbal commits from just shit players and he's running that program into the ground. He's a complete embarrassment right now.

Yeah, except the Giants did just beat all of those pitchers in the playoffs (multiple times in Cliff Lee's case), so it is do-able. I'm not dumb enough to think the Phillies aren't improved, but beating them is still possible as the Giants showed with their awful (but streaky in the playoffs) offense.

GMoney said...

Russell Martin = 2011 World Series champions...WEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

Jeff said...

Don't worry G$, I'm sure the yanks have something in order to go after Greinke, even though it might cost them the whole farm, but farm systems are over-rated when you can just go to the auction and buy what you want.

Drew said...

According to the Yankees source on ESPN, they have no interest in Greinke due to his mental issues. They don't think it would work at all.

GMoney said...

I'm with the organization. I don't want anything to do with a basket case who was overwhelmed in Kansas City three years ago.

If they even think of making the panic move and trading uber-prospect Nobody Fucks With The Jesus Montero, I will murder Brian Cashman. The guy is about as can't miss as they come. Although no one really comes to mind that is available that would warrant that trade other than MAYBE Josh Johnson in Florida. But I doubt that.

The Iceman said...

Baseball cracks me up with all these fuckin prospects. How many "can't miss" prospects have ended up working in the recyling plant in their home town? There's no such thing as a "can't miss".

Actually Drew, I would think it's the exact opposite. I would think making the playoffs is exactly the goal for the Yankees. Because if baseball has taught us anything it's that the best team doesn't always win. Often the hottest team wins it all. As long as the Yankees make the playoffs they have almost the same chance at winning the title as any other playoff team.

Thanks for pointing out the obvious.

And as long as I dont wear a condom, I have a chance to get a girl pregnant.

GMoney said...

Why would you wear a condom to fist your asshole? That makes no sense.

Mark Prior to the Yankees, so at least you got that going for you, G$.
