We have about had it with trying to name the Big East

Friday March 8th, 2013


Welp, we're in it now, and wouldn't you know it -- we've exhausted our supply of Future Big East Name Jokes. Y'all, just get it over with. All we ask is that any sort of Leaders-and-Legends situation be avoided, and based on this statement released by commissioner Mike Aresco, it seems as though the conference has come to the same conclusion:

"We have not chosen a new conference name at this time and there are no favorites. We are going through a thoughtful evaluation of potential names for our conference, and will select a name in a timely manner through a comprehensive and deliberate process that involves our presidents and athletic directors as well as constituents from inside and outside the conference. We are excited about the prospect of re-branding and look forward to working with our institutions and our fans as we engage in this process."
