08:10 AM ET 03.08 | Though it will likely start without a dozen teams, the new name suggests expansion. 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.

As I always say, If the condom fits, wear it.

A terrible name for a terrible conference.

A-12? Not to be confused with 1 double A.
