Report: Old Big East Could Be Named “America 12 Conference”

According to a tweet just sent out by ESPN’s Brett McMurphy, the conference that will soon be formerly known as the Big East is leaning towards the name “America 12 Conference”.

My first question is why they didn’t add an “n” to “America”. My second question is why they’d have a number in their conference name considering that a few teams (UConn, Cincinnati) would leave in a heartbeat if asked by the ACC.

But hey, these guys have been making great decisions for years, right?

 

That probably sums it up the best.
