Big East Football: Big East is Offically the Big Easy

Mark Dolejs-US PRESSWIRE

So the Big East Conference decided to get in on the fun of expansion today by officially adding the Tulane Green Waves and the East Carolina Pirates!

(crickets)

Yeah…

The College Football Nation cringes at thought of the powerhouses of Tulane and East Carolina entering the depleted Big East.

To be honest, most of the college football media was shocked by this announcement because everyone had already thought the Big East had folded…

This guy sure did…

Even the Pirates aren’t too sure what’s up because they just joined for football only…

You can’t make this stuff up folks!

So with these two teams officially on board and the Big East in a desperate push to become viable enough for a major TV Deal its time for a full makeover…

And that starts with a name change!

So, you heard it here first as the Big East will officially go all in and change its name to the Big Easy…

Tulane gives them the perfect opportunity to bring back the swagger to New Orleans, Louisiana!

The Nola CVB should be all over this!

Other potential names for the new conference could be…

Go Division I With Us

East To West Conference

We Merged with Conference USA Because We Like Their Name Better

We Don’t Have a TV Deal Yet

 

But the Big Easy just seems so natural…

So congratulation Big East!

The college football world cringes in the wake of this announcement…

And can’t wait to schedule you as the cupcake non-conference game in 2014…
