    New PAC 10 Logo



    I don't get it? You are adding 2 teams to your conference. Just call it the freaking PAC 12. Oh, but you added mountains for CU and Utah? Yeah, that makes it better. Lame.

    Re: New PAC 10 Logo

    Maybe there's a 12 hidden somewhere in the logo .

    Yea, I don't get that. It's not like the Big Ten where the conference name has never changed, considering it was originally the Pac-8.

    They are changing it to the PAC-12 next year when the teams are added. I would assume they will have a new logo then as well.

    It won't be too hard for them to switch that zero to a two.

    is there a story out there for that? Then that will be alright.....I didn't want them to pull a Big Televen here....and say it's a Brand name. Come on, for years they should have been called the Big 11. Big deal....

    I also hope, for the Big 12's sake that we change our name in a year as well. (We still have rights to the name's Big 12-16 right?) I would keep the word "Big" in it....and if the time ever comes where we are back at 12 again....then we just switch back.

    There have been multiple stories, I edited my last post to include one. If you google Pac 12, you will find even more information about it.

    That story IS a good confirmation. Good work.

    What does everyone think about our conference and a "new name?" I mean, the Pac 10 has really gotten on this new logo/name thing really fast. I have heard nothing about the Big 12....and our plans for a new logo/name?

    Is it just because we had 2 members bail? I would think...if I were in charge of the conference...I would show confidence in it's staying members and really get on this conference name thing moving....and stand by my decision. Not this beat around the bush crap our current AD has pulled.....which didn't help our conference in other areas as well.

    they are still the PAC 10 until next year. This logo ties in the current to the future. They can count unllike some other conferences

    I think it is VERY important to be numerically correct. Plus, if we were to change, it would really highlight the fact that the BigTen (11, soon to be 12) is, and has been wrong. I think the positive press that the conference would receive from changing its name would greatly outweigh the storied history (>15 years) of the BigXII.

    With all of the unrest in college football, I would change our name to something without numbers, and keep the naming rights of "Big 12-16" just to 'F' over the BigTen who undoubtedly would like to keep the "Big" aspect of their name.

    I'm right with you man on this one. Keep the rights to Big 12-16... But they are so arrogant....they'll keep the Big 10 name.... but deep down...it really just feels that they are telling Penn St. and Nebby that you joined OUR conference.

    Re: New PAC 10 Logo

    I can't keep up anymore. Is the Big 12 making Colorado jump ship after this year with Nebraska, or are they still staying 2 years?

    The logo change has little to do with conference expansion. It had been spotted on basketball courts and artificial turf fields across the league before any of the realignment ruckus went down.

    As far as the name goes, they've used Pac-8 and Pac-10. Since nobody else uses "Pac" (unlike "Big"), they're able to roll with the punches and simply change the number whenever necessary.
