    New conference name: 'Best 10' or 'Real 10'?

    Those are two possibilities, says President Geoffroy.

    Best 10 I could maybe get used to, but Real 10 just doesn't sound right.

    Agreed. Those both would suck. Honestly i think we should just leave numbers out of it entirely, especially as its very possible the college sports landscape isnt done shifting. Could go up or down..

    Re: New conference name: 'Best 10' or 'Real 10'?

    Why does there even need to be a name change? The Big 10's been rolling with 11 teams for quite a while. It's all about branding and a name change would erase any work that's gone into branding the Big 12 name.


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    I don't really like either of them. Wasn't "Super Duper 10" available?

    I don't like either. Lets just add 2 more teams and keep the Big 12, or just keep the Big 12 no matter what.

    This can't be for real. Those names totally blow.
    "Here comes Iowa State out of the Real 10 conference." That sounds terrible.

    I wonder if Real 10 is supposed to be a stab at the Big 10 and Pac 10 as we would actually have 10 teams

    You could have a kindergarten class come up with names using 10 and have better alternatives.
