    Should be Big 12 not Big XII

    Dump the Roman numerals and get a number 12. Then go get BYU and Notre Dame.

    Re: Should be Big 12 not Big XII

    Is that the problem? BYU and ND don't like roman numerals?

    I think it should be Big X-II and that would be a hyphen not a minus sign

    I prefer Big XII-ish.

    Re: Should be Big 12 not Big XII

    First I'm thinking that Roman Catholics - and therefore Notre Dame - would be big on roman numerals...

    And, my suggestion for the Big 12 logo: BIG XII +/-

    Interesting, since they just decided to stick with the "Big XII" logo (with roman numerals).

    I actually got an email from the conference earlier in the year asking me to change references in my Big 12 basketball bracket generator from "Big XII" to "Big 12".

    Wow, you must have made it big if the conference is sending you e-mails.
