Okay, so on Thursday we covered the teams that we believe should be ripe for the picking by the Big1Ten1. Today we delve into what to name the Big10 after it becomes a twelve member conference....
1M) The Heartland 12
Sure, it might sound a little cheesy, but hey--it's true! America's heartland is in the midwest where the grand majority of the conference members are.
2W) The Dirty Dozen
I honestly doubt this will be a choice.. but honestly it probably would be the best option , to sound like a old western mixed with football.
3M) Great Lakes Conference
I think this actually might be my favorite, and I have to say that I did not come up with this myself, but rather read it somewhere else (forget where, apologies to the original creator...not THE original creator, but you know what I mean). I enjoy things that actually make sense, unlike the LA Lakers or the Utah Jazz (is Jazz even allowed in Utah?), and seeing how most of the teams are within a couple hundred miles of the great lakes, it would make a lot of sence. The GLC would be a cool name I think.
4W) The and 1 conference
Cause we never know when we are going to add 1, ACC you have 12? WE Might just have 13, PAC you have 10? Well , 11 may be just right for us.. You just never know when And 1 will add one on ya !
5M) The Western conference
Back to basics, I say! The original name of the Big10 was the Western Conference, and it informally changed to the Big10 in the 1920's before becoming the formal name in the 40's. While it's not in the West Coast, it WAS the original name so I think going back would be kind of cool.
6W) MAC II
I mean, Mid American Conference, or Mid Atlantic although I am uncertain what that exactly means.. Maybe it allows a franchise license to the Big MAC, and McDonalds money would start to flow in? Possibilites are endless on this one!
7M) The Bigger 12 conference
Big12 is taken.
8W) The FCS Region C Conference
To really make no sense, they could start a region conference, hoping everyone jumps in.. and somehow take Region C.. Although no one jumps in..FAIL
9M) tBig Ten Conference
In honor of THE Ohio State University which wins everything in this one team conference anyway. We doubt they're going to add anyone that will be competitive (like the ACC did with BC/VT/Miami), expansion is much easier on the current members if you bring in doormats.
10W) The Conference
Kinda stealing a bit of BCMike's thunder here, but if they want to have The in front of every school in thier conference, then just call it THE conference.
BCMike drafted: Heartland 12, Great Lakes Conference, The Western Conference, Bigger 12 Conference, tbig ten
Wesley drafted: Dirty Dozen, The And-1 Conference, MAC II, The Conference, FCS Region 3
