Re: Conference Re-alignment
So now the Big 10 has 12 teams and the Big 12 has 10 teams, do they swap conference names too? Just a thought. I alwys wondered what would happen to those conferences with number in them when they expaned on contracted.
The Big 12 used to be called the Big 8 I believe. Even though the Big 10 had 11 teams, they always had the number 11 hidden in their conference logo.
Will the Pac-10 now be called the Pac-12?
Anyone know if these conferences will be renamed??
I know that the Big 10 had discussed being called the Mega 12 or something like that if they managed to get a 12th team because the presumption was that the Big 12 would remain...but the Big 12 is licensed and the Big 10 wouldn't be able to just 'swap' it.
The Pac-10 will most like be the Pac-12. I have no idea what the Big 12 will be called....word was, that should ISU, Kansas, and Kansas St. be left out, they'd formed the Heartland Conference with teams like Butler, UNI, etc., so maybe they will go with that.
The Big 10 is still looking to add 2 or 4 teams. I'm doubtful it will happen, but teams like Rutgers, Pittsburgh and Syracuse have been given offers.
