Big Ten's biggest storylines

Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany is "East Coastifying" the conference. Maryland and Rutgers are here, though cynics would say it's to get revenue from the New York and Washington, D.C., markets.

Also, the "Legends" and "Leaders" reign of terror is over. Now the divisions are sensible: East and West.

RedEye sifted through all the tedious cliches—"got to stay focused," "trying to get better every day," "doing whatever I can to help the team"—to create one line that embodies each program's storyline.

Then there's a quote conveying that theme—in words that might fit a motivational cat poster (plus, we predict their order of finish).
