    The OP is incorrect. This is the Big 12 logo:

    I guess they will have another new logo when they actually have 12 teams.

    The new Big 12 logo will be used starting in 2014-15.

    Are they confident they are going to 12 teams or just plain stupid?

    I worry about the B12 the same way I worry about the leak I took the day CU left that steaming pile of doo-doo conference....

    The Big Ten will retain the name even with 14 teams. I think it would have been better if conferences get rid of the reference to how many teams are in that conference. The Pac-12 can just become the PAC but I think that would mean a new PAC logo in this case.

    I'll have this as a good Big 12 thread and if no one cares, just don't post.

    Two things:

    1) The Ten and Twelve are not fully changing their names because the conference/NCAA shake up is far from over, so it would be a waste of time and tarnish their brand without the longevity.
    2) Some already noticed, but they are trying giving the PAC 12 a jab by only putting XII in their logo as if they are THE conference of 12 and PAC is just some other guy...they're still butt hurt about the whole courtship a few years ago.

    They need to get back to 12---why they haven't added Cincy and somebody else is beyond me.

    Oklahoma and Texas like a 10 team conference. In a 12 team conference they'd have to play each twice. Once in the regular season, and once in the championship game.

    If they went back to 12 teams they would split between north and south again.

    OU and UT like the 10 team conference because it puts more dollars in their pockets.
    They also like the Big 12 because they get to keep all their 3rd tier money. For UT that was $15+ mil last year. Even KU was able to bring in $6.5+ mil for 3rd tier money.

    8 of the 10 Big 12 teams got paid $22 million this year for their 1st / 2nd tier rights. When you add in the 3rd tier rights several teams get up to the $30+ million range. Not too bad for that conference.

    Technically, they would have to change from Pac-12 to something that forms the acronym "PAC". Just being called "Pacific" sounds kinda weird.

    You do realize that PAC stands for Pacific Athletic Conference? (It at least used to, if it doesn't anymore (a la KFC & FedEx) it's a pretty easy remedy.)

    The official name, since forever, is the Pacific-12 (10, 8) Conference. The Pacific Athletic Conference-12 Conference...nope.
    People capitalizing "PAC" has pretty much always been a pet peeve of mine, but I'm learning to let it go.
