New At Rivals

I have another new column up at, this time regarding the recent spate of conference expansion madness.  It's on the subscriber side, but here's a preview:
First of all, what the heck are we supposed to call all these Conferences Run By People Who Can't Count? 
"Pac Televen" is an easy one, but what about the others? The Big 10 now has 12 teams and the Big 12 has 10. 
Wouldn't everybody's lives be easier if they'd just mutually swap all their t-shirts and banners and stationary? Or maybe the Big XII-Minus-II should just revert back to the old Southwest Conference moniker, since they're now all but formally Texas And A Bunch Of Texas' Rivals.
It's enough to drive one to drink-assuming, of course, that one stopped drinking beforehand.
