No it will not.
There's no 12.
We should invite Georgia tech! They could fill two other letters. And Baylor too!
Edit: Follow along people... It's not that difficult...
You're right, I think the USA Today/ESPN Coaches poll only gave them a share of that N. Grrrrr
I think it really should be the Big TeM conference.
As a fan in Virginia, I'm been hoping for a senerio that brings UVA to the Big Ten (or 14 or 16). It would be great to see Michigan in Charlottesville.
The only way I would ever want to see UVA in the Big Ten is if the ACC up and completely dissolves. I think UVA athletics would be ruined. Forget being a football school or a basketball school or even a baseball school - the best we could hope for is being a lacrosse school.
Hey, at least it wasn't that "N" they use that looks like a comic sans font drawn with the world's biggest Bic flair.
I've been taking to calling the conference "The Big X" for now, where X = the number of teams in the conference when the dust finally settles (and doubles as the roman numeral for 10).
Of course, if we stop at 12 teams and the Big XII is still alive, well...I guess we'd better just kill the Big XII. Never should have let anyone else call themselves "Big" anyway.
Can you do a logo that combines the SWC, Big 8, Big 12, Big 10, and Big(11)10?
The Big Ten commissioned me to come up with a new logo, and gave me some specifics of what needs to go in there. Here's what I've come up with so far:
Is it really necessary to include part of the female anatomy above the I?
(Ah, classic MZone)
There's no 11 in the logo. You need to fit that or a some other reference to Penn State in there.
I think the top of the B needs some wings.
This goes here now.
As a Kansas grad, and someone who lived in Kansas during Nebraska's heyday during the '90s, I can tell you this: Nebraska fans are like Iowa fans, only really obnoxious and arrogant...If expansion has to happen, I'm glad to have Nebraska, but I already dislike them intensely.
I had one Nebraska fan tell me yesterday that when they come to Ann Arbor there will be more Nebraska fans in the stadium then Michigan fans. I had a hard time answering because I was laughing too hard.
The Cornhuskers are the only game in town in the whole state of Nebraska, in terms of sports teams to root for and just entertainment generally...I'm so glad I don't live around Nebraska fans anymore.
Yes, but have they seen Big Ten stadia yet? We can fit the whole state of Nebraska in the horn section.
They need to get rid of the numbers in conference names in order to promote mega-alliance-reshuffling-conspiracy-theories and associated names and logo's.
They should probably go with the "Great Lakes Conference", but the marketing yahoos would probably come up with something like "the Quizno's Power Smash Bash College Football Conference, sponsored by Samsung" (though I do like the ring of QPSBCFC).
I'd rather we were sponsored by Queso. Those commercials were the best part of almost every BTN Michigan football broadcast last year.
Say what you will but they wear red and they can fill stadiums. Did you see when they went to Notre Dame? They looked like they outnumbered ND fans at that game. I think a lot of it is an optical illusion but Ohio State looked like they were around 50% of the attendance this year at the Big House. Red stands out.
Me, I'm up for the Bounce coupon I see in the top banner. $3 off?? Crazy...
Conference (With block Ms of course.)
