    We should call this conference the Big X

    Pronounced Big Ex.

    It looks like ten, and then we don't really need to change the conference name if we add more because our conference won't be named after a number.

    But it would. It's totally genius.

    Sorry to dig up a dead subject.

    We'll be at 12 teams again soon. The conference still holds the rights to Big 14 as well so we're covered there too.

    Yeah, I'm guessing they already own the rights to that name.

    Why does it have to be "Big" something.

    Why not "Conference X (also pronouned `ex')"

    Surprisingly, no they do not but I'd bet they would win a lawsuit over it resembling their current trademarks (like the kid that had MikeRoweSoft losing to Microsoft)

    what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    It's not as catchy as big 12 but how about "The big 10 that isn't boring"

    People need to get out of the decimal cage that limits their thought.

    Unlike the the Big Ten, we don't think two of our members aren't big. Take that how ever you want to. Infact, we believe the sum of our parts is greater than just ten.
