Theory: All college football division names are funny

Nelson Chenault-US PRESSWIRE

The Big East Conference has announced its new divisions for 2013 and beyond: East and West. This is funny, because we can say "Big East East" and "Big East West."

But if you take the word "Conference" from the name of pretty much any league with divisions, you get something funny. From FBS alone:

  • Atlantic Coast Atlantic
  • Atlantic Coast Coastal
  • Big Ten Legends*
  • Big Ten Leaders*
  • USA East
  • USA West
  • Mid-American East
  • Mid-American West
  • Southeastern East
  • Southeastern West

At the Division II level, there's a Northern Sun North and a Northern Sun South, but nothing can top D3's New England Football Conference, which goes with Boyd and Bogan as division names.

And then there's Pac-12 North and Pac-12 South, which aren't funny at all.
