Does the Big 10 need a new name?

Badgers, Packers, Mallards. Paddling, running, golfing. And bikes!

Conference name?

It should stay Big 10. you know for the sake of irony.

The Big 10 would be perfectly logical and appropriate if by next season congress switches the U.S. to the Duodecimal system.

Lame logo, lame division names, lame name for the Championship Trophy(Stagg-Paterno). I can understand honoring Amos Alonzo Stagg, but Penn St. has only been a member of the conference for 20 years. Bad choices.

Leaders? Legends? Yeah those sound a little more American Gladiators then College Football. Logo is lame as well. I like putting Paterno's name on the trophy even if Penn St hasn't always been a part of the league. I fail to see how they can get away with calling it the Big 10 though. I think we just just pull a switch with the Big 12 and let the confusion sort itself out.
