(In checking the media guide, I also found hilarity. The Big East lists preferred and unacceptable reference terms for each of its teams - and the conference itself - and most of them make some sense. DePaul wants to make sure you capitalize the P, for example; "Depaul" is unacceptable. Villanova wants "Wildcats" and never "'Cats." Fine. Also listed as unacceptable: "Big East." You're not supposed to call it the Big East, because it seems the whole damn name is supposed to be in caps: "BIG EAST." Wuteva. I'm not doing it, nobody else is doing it, and frankly I've never seen an organization so pathetic and yet so comically full of itself. Do you think they'll like Biggish Eastish, which is what I've taken to calling them ever since they started adding teams decidedly neither Big nor East?)

That's BIG EAST to you, thank you very much!
