B1G Butt Trophy: Is Rutgers REALLY Buttgers?

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to B1G Butt Trophy, the B1G's only rivalry trophy up for grabs for each of the conference's 14 teams. The Butt is not a physical trophy, thanks to both budgeting constraints and the fear that one of Nebuttska or Buttesota would claim they never endorsed the trophy and threw it in the trash. The Butt is, instead, a label of dishonor or a mark of shame that your team must carry until it doesn't completely suck anymore.

Earning the B1G Butt Trophy: The rules are simple, lose to the current owner of the Butt, and you become the owner. As an example, Buttwestern topples Purdue 28-24. Northwestern regains their standard OTE meme name, but Purdue becomes the Buttermakers. The Buttermakers will stay the Buttermakers until they defeat a conference opponent. Each time the team fails to defeat a conference foe, due to lack of Offense and Defense, they complete a successful Buttfense. Easy, right?

Nomenclature: Each team needs to have a unique way of working Butt into their name. The rest of their name can be any kind of butt-related phrasing to ensure max hilarity. Some are simple, some may not be. Iowa, which will be holding this title frequently, seems a tall task, but a bit of communal creativity gives us the IowAss HawkButts.

B1G Butt Beginnings: There are only two logical places to start the trophy's history, the first conference game of the current 14 team conference (9/13/2014 Penn State 13 Buttgers 10), or at the very first conference game ever (10/17/1896 Minnesota 14 Buttermakers 0). The taxpayers haven't been getting their money's worth with me anyway, so I did the whole shebang. Enjoy!
