Real tough decision regardless, if there was a perfect solution it probably would have already been determined.
Ohio State and Michigan are going to have to be in the same division because there won't be cross over games anymore and you have to have the biggest rivalry every season.

Basically make it East-West and give the Illini-NW rivalry the shaft.
