When 10 is 12, and 12 is 10

Conference expansion is officially taking place this week in college sports.

Because these movements are football-driven, it's another opportunity to show how college football can't get it right.

With the addition of Nebraska, the Big Ten, which had 11 schools, now has 12.

The Big 12, which lost Colorado in addition to Nebraska, has 10 teams.

Both conferences are retaining their now numerically incorrect names.

At least the Pac-10 has it right. With Utah and Colorado, it expanded to 12 schools. With the move, it changed its name to Pac-12.

What a concept.
