The Big East has considered "the Metro" and "the United" as possible naming options for the new iteration of the conference beginning this summer, according to Jeremy Fowler of CBS Sports. The "Catholic Seven" will be taking the Big East title, leaving the conference to create a new branding.
"America 12" had previously been mentioned, and Fowler says that it is still on the table. The new assortment of names range from sounding like a group of comic book heroes to a high school basketball league, which could be fitting considering all of the hoops powers leaving the conference.
The new assortment of teams will stretch as far west as Texas with Houston and SMU, meaning a directional title are out of the question. With the league continuing to reach West, they should consider historical names like "Manifest Destiny" or "The Louisiana Purchase." Those can reflect the conference's apparent new mission of taking over every mid-major program in the Western Hemisphere.
