Delany: Updated B1G divisions are not set

B1G commish Jim Delany just told me we should not believe report on Rut & Md going to Leaders, and Ill shifting to Legends...

Delany: "I have absolutely no idea where that came from. We have not had discussion one about that."

Delany says geography will probably play a more important role in the next divisional alignment

Delany reiterates the Big Ten "has to seriously consider adding more [conference] games." Says it would help maintain rivalries.

Delany says nine-game sked has to be back on the table. Question is whether schools have flexibility in future schedules.
