The Big East Conference to become the America 12 Conference?

ESPN's Brent McMurphy is reporting that the remaining football members of the Big Conference may have picked a new name.They'll have to, since the basketball-only Catholic schools are taking the Big East name with them when they leave.  It's not written in stone yet, but the remaining football schools of the Big East could become... The America 12 Conference.

And yes, someone has already used your "MERICAction" and "America F**k Yeah! 12 Conference" nickname ideas. So you'll just have to be a little smarter and a little quicker there, #Hashtag.

Points to the soon to be ex-Big East for the use of "America" in the new name, but points taken away for using a number that nobody expects will equal the exact number of teams in the conference in a few years time, if not sooner.
