These are not my ideas, but some of them are pretty funny.
Big-10

ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg suggested the Big Dozen, which is nice, but Dandy Dozen would be better. Of course, that might tick off the sports editors of a lot of southern newspapers who would suddenly need a new name for their all-state football teams


The Big Eleven. Being off by one worked for 20 years.

Big-12


Bevo and Pals. Because it sounds so much nicer than Texas and the Nine Dwarfs or -- thanks to Tom Shatel of the Omaha World-Herald for this one --
Texas and the Pips


Dennis Dodd of CBSSports.com offered a fine option with this gem: The Tentative Ten


We at FanNation can do better than that, well maybe not better than Texas and the Pips, but we can try.
