It appears there will be some shakeup to the Big Ten conference in the near future.

Michigan State Athletic Director Alan Haller made some interesting comments on Monday regarding potential conference realignment in the Big Ten. Haller was asked about any shakeup to the Big Ten coming down the pipeline during the Michigan State luncheon with the Detroit Economic Club and he hinted at something being in the works.

Here’s what Haller had to say (courtesy of the Detroit Free Press’ Tony Garcia):

At first glance, this seems to be related to the conference working to either remove or adjust the current divisions used in football. For a long time, the imbalance of competition between the Big Ten East and West Divisions has been clear so it appears the league is working to resolve this issue.

Haller’s comments could also be related to the league exploring adding more teams to the conference. There was a ton of buzz last year when Texas and Oklahoma jumped ship of the Big 12 to join the SEC, but the Big Ten has been quiet ever since then. Could this mean the league is finally getting off the sidelines and looking to add one or two more teams?

Either way, it’s exciting to hear the conference is looking to make some changes that I’d assume would be positive moves. We should hopefully know soon enough what those changes will be.
