Top 12 Names For New Big 10

Robert DentonCorrespondent IDecember 16, 2009

As the Big Ten Conference contemplates adding a new school to its current roster of 11, it seems appropriate to help them with a new name, after all...they're busy enough.

Several names have been mentioned since the announcement; Syracuse, Pitt and Rutgers being the most notable among them.  Notre Dame would benefit the conference more than anyone by joining, and would benefit themselves most of all, but has said repeatedly that this will not happen.

So, let's hear it.  Here is some additional information that helped me with a few names...maybe it can help you as well. 

Over the past decade, the BCS is 8-12 in BCS Bowl game match ups, and have been outscored 79-38 in their last two national championship game appearances.  For these lackluster performances, I give them:

1. The "How do you like having 72 days off?" 12

2.  The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly 12

3.  The Who?

4.  Three yards and a cloud of dust 12

5.  We don't need no stinkin' quarterback 12

6.  Ohio State and Friends

7.  The Slow and Dirty Dozen

8.  One Mediocre and 11 Also-Rans

9.  The Plodding 12

10. The We Used to be Goods

11. The Big Two and a Half

12. The BCS Bridesmaids

As you can clearly see, comedy is not a skill I've mastered...much like the Big 10 and the passing game.

Please feel free to help me out...
