Big Ten Backtracking On Names?

From everyone's favorite "reporter", Teddy Greenstein (OK, he's actually really good but got played like everyone else in Expansionpalooza), Jim Delany is...wait for it...surprised by the amount of negative backlash from the "Legends" and "Leaders" division names, and scrapping the names altogether is now under consideration.  Sources also say now that Nebraska may not be a good fit because they didn't win the Big XII in their final season with that league, that a sample size of nearly 20 years may not be large enough to see if this whole Penn State thing is working out and Minnesota will be going back to playing their games in the Metrodome now that it is, in fact, an outdoor venue.

The end of the article contains the real kicker; Delany didn't think the divisional names of "Stars" and "Stripes" were appropriate because

 conference officials felt those names represented America, not the Big Ten.

Because the Big Ten is not representative of America how?
