    I voted Rose Bowl Alliance but I'm open to Grandaddy; Dru. So, if you want to call time of death on Rose Bowl Alliance lol i'm good with that too!

    Anything then what it is now. Wide Open West is ridiculous. Shaun should be ashamed of himself for even putting that up lol. He could of at least went with Wild Wild West or something since he's such a big Will Smith fan after all.

    I was thinking it fit with the demographic of the players in the league though. If this league thrives until say NCAA 2013 and we aren't using the Big 10/Pac 12 the name 'Grandaddy' won't make much sense, unless we are talking about me and recchem being old.

    Yeah, the more I think about it I don't really like the idea of the league name being tied to the Rose Bowl, since if we have a year where we aren't using one of the Big10/Pac12 conferences the name won't be relevant.

    I presume this means that we are looking for new names again? Unless, of course, we turn off coaching contracts and just play the dynasty as we did this year. Then the Grandaddy name would be appropriate.

    You make a valid argument though dru. And we have plenty of time to make a final decision

    Exactly my point, I just want to get a name that makes sense and we all like. We'll take our time and come to a good choice.

    We could always tie the Rose Bowl into the conferences we choose. We now have that option (y)

    Can you change the league name to 'The Grandaddy'? Thanks.

    The Grandaddy still has a nice ring to it if we changed conferences or whatever.

    O didn't get any of the alerts in here but I'm on vacation for a few weeks and haven't had tome anyways. I think we should name our league, shovel that snow I've got tee times.

    If I had gotten the original alert I would have voted for rose bowl alliance. That is still the best option in my opinion.

    We could lose the Alaska feel to it and simply call it "The Frontier" as well

    sorry @JFace907

    I think maybe I'll do another poll - since we have the time and all.
