With the news coming from CBSSports.com's Brett McMurphy that the Big East was expanding to include Boise State, San Diego State, Houston, SMU and UCF in 2013, one thing became immediately and abundantly clear: the Big East cannot be called the Big East anymore. We've sat idly by and let the Big 12 have 10 teams while the Big Ten expanded to 12, and we're just not going to abide that conference name dishonesty any longer.

But we're solution-minded folks, one and all, so here are some helpful suggestions from us as to what the Big East ought to be renamed:

  • League of Extraordinary Liberty Bowls

  • Marinatto's Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

  • Frequent Flyer Conference

  • Manifest Destiny Conference

  • Everything But The Crystal Football Conference

  • Etc. Etc. Conference

Vote! Vote at once, you knaves!

As a clarification, and akin to the Sugar Bowl trading OK St to the Fiesta for Oklahoma and a team to be named later, Conference USA will trade its name to the Big East and Change its name to the Big SouthEast.  And fearing that they will be left out of things if they don't do what everyone else does, the Big Ten will swap conference names with the Big Twelve.

Let's borrow a little from the ridiculous and the sublime shall we!

How about naming it the (T.A.C. ) Trans American Conference.

then to borrow from a previous suggestion, two divisions...Big East and Big West.
Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue ( Boise...)
"..til the haters due us part LOL,"

It should be called the Big WEC.  The Big West/East Conference.  Or Wreck for short.

In the song "America the Beautiful", there is a verse sung as "from sea to shining sea".


Since the Big East has expanded from the Atlantic to the Pacific, Then why not call the new expanded conference "sea to sea"?


Or in other words, rename it the "C2C Conference"!


This conference could grow up to 24 schools with 2 divisions.


The C2C CONFERENCE
