    New Conference Names Considered

    I found this little gem on the Aggie board (those guys are delusional).

    Name change? From what I hear, Big 12 officials will view presentations regarding a conference name change at the basketball tournament in Kansas City, which takes place March 9-12. They'll make a decision on whether to change the name at the spring meetings (May 31-June 3).
    Dallasnews.com - News for Dallas, Texas - The Dallas Morning News


    I'll be cool with whatever they decide, but I would love the Heartland Conference.

    Re: New Conference Names Considered

    The smart thing to do would be to sell the name. $100 million a year for 10 years to be the Dr. Pepper Conference. Imagine what ISU could do with money like that.

    I really like this idea. Our conference would trailblaze the path to a new era of conference names.

    Might as well. We need all the extra money we can get, and the conference name really doesn't mean anything. Just a title.

    I was thinking like 15k so that's a pretty good deal.

    Agreed, i wouldnt mind it at all, provided the money was enough.

    Id prefer to keep the Big 12 name for the brand identity, but if we're going to change, and throw out that identity, why not get some cash for the new name?

    The PRC. The other Big 12 schools will be told that it stands for the Plains Region, but we know what PR really means.

    In true big 12 fashion though it probably wouldn't be divided equally among the schools.

    25 million to Texas
    25 million to Oklahoma
    25 million to A&M
    25 million split between the remaining seven.

    I like either The Central Conference or stealing the name The Heartland Conference.

    I know that historically A&M has tradition, but it is a joke that they are even in the same sentence as OU and UT. Am I way off here?
