Boston College's former conference home has a new name.

The current (read: old) Big East Conference has announced that it will be renamed the American Athletic Conference and will rebrand in time for the 2013-14 season. Unlike other, more legitimate conferences which go by an acronym, the conference intends to emphasize "The American" as its brand. Not an acronym. OK, AAC.

I gotta give the conference credit: the Big East will finally finish in first ahead of the Atlantic Coast Conference ... alphabetically. Troll on, Big East. Troll on.

While not "American 12" bad the conference's new brand is still in the ballpark; at least judging by the reaction on Twitter. Seriously all. of. the. jokes.

A full set of marks for the American Athletic Conference will be presented in the coming weeks, but if the final logo isn't one of the four below, I'd be shocked.
