    Big 10 conf name change press release

    **** not a serious post****

    Just to have a little fun on a Tuesday!

    Press Release

    Newark NJ (AP)-

    The Big 10 offices in New Jersey today announced that they will be changing the name of the Big 10 conference to something that more accurately describes the 11 teams in the league.

    After several years of being over-hyped, and overrated, James Delaney, conference commisioner, decided it was time for a change.

    Several suggestions were taken into consideration. Among them "Big 2, little 9," "OSU and the 10 dwarfs," and "Underachieving 11." After carefully reviewing the options the conference took into account all the characteristics of the league.

    "We looked at how we had more money than most small countries, our very own TV network, and a gigantic fan base," said Delaney. "In addition to that, we had to look at how the media has a love affair with our teams, how we get into bowl games we don't deserve, and how we never live up to our pre and midseason hype."

    The conference will now be called the "Notre Dame Football Conference."

    I typed that up this morning for CN, but I have to give credit where credit is due. Bryce was my inspiration.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Maybe they should pay to borrow the MVC moniker and toughen up their pre season schedule since they have so many zeros on their schedule during the conference season. Only 4 of the 11 run a standard offense, most have a spread offense.
