Here's the story per Adam Rittenberg:
"We can't test them until we play a season," Big Ten chief communications officer Diane Dietz told me today. "We have to see them through."
Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany had given all of us hope that perhaps he would perhaps be walking back the ill-advised names, but alas, that hope was as elusive as el chupacabra or the lost city of Atlantis.
[And just to be clear, I like to think of us as the Bigfoot of the Legends division -- powerful but essentially benign. You can figure out who the rest are; *cough* OSU is Stalin *cough*.]
