The league would likely do this via Twitter. Start brainstorming.
The league is currently considering a list of names provided by its branding firm. ESPN reported the league's lawyers bought the domain for "America 12."
The Big East on Friday finalized its 7-12 split with the Catholic schools and will emerge as a 10-team football league for 2013-14. Navy joins the league in 2015, and Tulsa has been the in-office favorite for the 12th spot for awhile. Talks with Tulsa could re-engage now that the C-7 breakup is complete.
The Big East just finalized a television deal with ESPN that one TV source said will be worth right at $20 million per year for basketball and football from 2014-20.
