America 12 Likely the New Moniker of the Old Big East

Mike Aresco, maybe I owe you an apology for how angry I have been towards you this year. Or maybe this video of Nerlens Noel rapping has put me in such a good mood that I will only bash you a little bit going forward. Who am I kidding? Let the bashing begin!

For those of you who are unaware, Aresco is the current Big East commissioner who happened to help play a vital role in the demise of a once mighty conference. Granted, by the time he got there, most of the damage done was irreversible. However, he didn’t do much to help try to save the conference, but seemingly did everything he could to help put the final nail in the coffin of the Big East as we know it.

So besides the fact that Aresco goes about his daily routine by adding sugar and his own tears to his coffee, he has also helped come up with a new name for the old Big East–the old Big East being the members who will be left in the abomination of a conference after the Catholic Seven depart later this year.

The name is “America 12” or what cool kids like to call “Conference USA The Sequel”.

I couldn’t think of a name more fitting for a league that has become a laughingstock under Aresco’s leadership. Considering that they have plucked nearly every horrible program, but left all the good ones out of Conference USA, this is a move that continues to show his inability to have an ability to get anything right.

Even though it is not official, Covington & Burling, the conference’s law firm, has purchased several domains with the “America 12” moniker. So rest assured, fans who love horrible sports conferences, Aresco is doing all he can do brand your new product as horribly as possible.

I mean, he wouldn’t want anyone in the world to think he might be semi-intelligent, right?
