"But can we all agree that Maryland and Rutgers are looking particularly leaderly this morning? Hello?" (AP)

Friday night news from Sources McMurphy that bears repeating: Leaders and Legends are going the way of the dinosaur. Not in the re-released-in-3D way, but rather the selected-for-necessary-extinction way:
Legends and Leaders are no more, as the Big Ten will use geography to determine its new divisions and division names beginning in the 2014 season. The Big Ten will replace Legends and Leaders with East and West when Maryland and Rutgers join the league in 2014, league sources told ESPN.
"Just take a ruler and a map [and split the 14 teams]," a source said.
HOW HARD WAS THAT? Honestly.
