Seriously? They need to change the names to the Parkway Conference and the Driveway Conference. :)

2. They will simply swap names
The Big Ten will become the Big 12, the Big 12 will become the Big Ten. I expect the Pac-10 to announce (tomorrow?) that they're now the MountainPac 12.

3. Seems appropriate.
The way some colleges chunk out their academic criteria for the sake of football, having conferences that demonstrate a lack of mathematical skills seems more honest than ironic.

4. Good point. I once remarked on the odd fact that some pro football players
seemed to have difficulty speaking correct English, yet they were all college graduates...people actually seemed to find that humerous... :shrug:

7. Well, alcohol and cocaine can simulate a hard head blow. As for Palin
she played basketball, and beauty pagents. :)

9. Ah...Basketball!!!! They seem to have speech problems too...
where as the pagent ladies are obviously chosen for their brainpower...I'm now wondering if Palin ever tossed a baton in a parade....

15. meh
we've been the Big 11 for years; we got over that, we'll get over this :D

Anyway, before too long, there will be four superconferences, West, Midwest, Northeast, and Southeast, and it won't matter
