For competitive balance, they should send MSU west. But MSU has to play Michigan every year, right? Do they have one fixed cross-divisional rivalry (MSU-Michigan) and find a way to work around it?

Otherwise Northwestern is the obvious choice to move east because they have the smallest fan base in the league, and hence can't make too much trouble.
