Remnants of the Big East / football schools have picked a name they like.


The "America 12 Conference" is the favorite to become the new name of the current Big East Conference's football schools, league sources told ESPN. The name has not officially been approved by the league's presidents. The conference also is considering several other names, sources said.

However, Covington & Burling, the conference's law firm, purchased and registered the domain name America12.org on Tuesday, according to WhoIs domain-registration data. The Big East's law firm also registered other variations of America 12 on Tuesday, including America12Conference.com, America12Sports.com, American12.org, American12conference.com, AmericaTwelve.com and TheAmerica12Conference.com.

Now they just need to line up 12 members.

Joke making the rounds: The conference will have two divisions. "First to Go" and "Leaving Next."

Bye, bye Orange[men] ... nostalgic look back over 34 years. http://collegebasketballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/03/07/the-end-syracuse-and-georgetown-as-big-east-rivals/
