    America 12

    The "America 12 Conference" is the favorite to become the new name of the current Big East Conference's football schools, league sources told ESPN.

    The name has not officially been approved by the league's presidents. The conference also is considering several other names, sources said.
    However, Covington & Burling, the conference's law firm, purchased and registered the domain name America12.org on Tuesday, according to WhoIs domain-registration data.

    The Big East's law firm also registered other variations of America 12 on Tuesday, including America12Conference.com, America12Sports.com, American12.org, American12conference.com, AmericaTwelve.com and TheAmerica12Conference.com.
    With the Catholic 7 schools leaving the league on June 30 to start a new conference and keeping the Big East name, the current football schools must have a new conference name by July 1.

    The Big East football universities are not expected to add a 12th school until 2015, when Navy joins. It will have 10 members in 2013, and East Carolina and

    Tulane will replace departing Louisville and Rutgers the following year.

    Sources said Tulsa is the only school the league is considering to become its 12th member
    . It hasn't been determined yet whether the Golden Hurricane would be invited to join in 2014 or 2015, sources said.

    How close could they get to the name Conference USA than that?

    I don't know why they couldn't just bring back the Metro

    Re: America 12

    So, is this a sign that the "America 12" will add ONLY Tulsa, and stop at 12????

    Navy is currently the 11th school scheduled to be added in 2015. Adding Tulsa would take them to 12 members. Could this actually be good news for us and CUSA? Doesn't this mean USM, Rice, UAB, Marshall and UTEP will be staying in CUSA?

    For the time being. I bet more realignment is coming and America 12 will lose 2 or 3 more.

    The hidden advantage here is being listed first. Like calling your company "Acme Whatever" back in the olden times of people using physical yellow pages.

    But it will be likely be listed like this:

    ACC
    Big 10
    Big 12
    PAC 12
    SEC

    America 12
    CUSA
    MAC
    MWC
    Sun Belt

    Exactly........ That makes room for us, Southern Miss, and probably Marshall or UAB. UTEP to MWC. Rice may have a problem, unless Houston wants them - don't know why they would, though. I would want more separation if I were Houston. If Marshall doesn't get in, they will go back to the MAC. CUSA truly then becomes the Sun Belt and the belt dies.

    No way does UConn, Cincy, and USF stick around for long. Just wait for the ACC to get finished with what they are going through.

    UCONN, Cincy, and USF are going to stick around long enough to collect their money and get the f*** out of there

    In that case, maybe Conference USA should rename itself "AAAmerica 12".

    Re: America 12

    would the 'Murrica 12 conference be listed first alphabetically?

    Re: America 12

    but seriously, i think they made a mistake not reviving the Metro name. I think there is some value in that name given the teams that have come through that conference. the name would have been more valuable than trying to rebrand a new name like 'Murrica 12
