Legends and Leaders could become a thing of the past in the Big Ten by 2014. Penn State athletics director Dave Joyner says the Big Ten is currently discussing a number of options for the future of the conference once Maryland and Rutgers join the Big Ten to create a 14-team conference.
''I have a feeling it will be more geography-based,'' Joyner said in a recorded interview shared on Penn State's athletics website Tuesday. He was referring to the divisional format, one of many topics that have been discussed between athletics directors over the phone. ''There seems to be a lot of sentiment for that.''
