There hasn't been 10 teams in the Big Ten since 1990, so does it even matter anymore?

Yes it does matter -- they should change the names of these conferences. It was extremely foolish and short-sighted to have given conferences names such as Big 10 or Big 12 in the first place. This would have been like originally naming the US "United 13 States of America" -- ignorant enough to think the number of states (or, in this case number of teams in conferences) would never change.

No, the mascot of the team is the scarlet knights not the red knights.

Is "Fighting" really necessary for Illinois' nickname when "Golden" is not necessary for Minnesota's? I kept thinking I had misspelled a 6-letter word -- granted, putting all those I's and L's together can look confusing -- until I went back and put "Fighting" in front.

Illini should be accepted, while I don't think just 'gopher' should (if that's still the case).

From 1971 thru 1987 Illinois' side helmet decals featured a single word: "ILLINI". If they refer to themselves simply as the "ILLINI", then I think that is a compelling reason to accept just "Illini" as a correct answer.

As an Illinois alum, I would support the shortened version on the quiz. There is a limit - Nittany is absolutely necessary as part of Penn State, for example. And I can see how a Minnesota alum might support the shortened form of the team name. But - using the example of how the team refers to itself - at Northwestern, they say (all the time) "Go Cats" and the team of course is the Wildcats. I don't think my son (recent NU alum) would agree with just using "Cats" for the school. Oh, and before I forget, "What's a Hoosier?" :) Sorry IU alums, I had to do that.

Yes! Go Bucks! This quiz needs to accept THE Ohio State and "that team up north." I missed one because I wouldn't type the M word!

No, you missed two. Michigan is a prerequisite to Michigan State. Have fun in the 60th percentile. Noob.

Oh yeah, I remember THE Ohio State University when they played THE Clemson University and couldn't find THE endzone one time. I scored just as many points as Ohio State did that night. Pathetic. But let's be cocky and above everyone else and make sure to say THE everytime we talk about THE overrated Buckeyes because we're just so good at everything...

Go U, NU! MSU and OSU should be accepted for Mich. St. and Ohio St. UMAA, UMTC, UIUC, UMD/UMCP, UNL should also be accepted for Michigan (Ann Arbor), Minnesota (Twin Cities), Illinois (Urbana-Champaign), Maryland (College Park), and Nebraska (Lincoln)

UIUC is a pretty specific usage for the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Just "Illinois" could technically refer to any of the three campuses - Chicago and Sangamon (Springfield) are also home to separate campuses, albeit with independent sports (in the case of UIC - UofI Chicago - I don't think UIS actually has a sports program, at least Division I level).

Not to mention Michigan handed you guys a whooping in Ann Arbor 49-10. The B1G conference is messed up with PSU, UM, MSU, and OSU all in the same division with Wisconsin being the only good team in the other division. Maybe we should go back to the Leaders/legends for the divisions rather than east/west so we can actually avoid those three or four way ties in the east division.
