OK, now I think the Horizon League should change its name back to the Midwestern Collegiate Conference. You know, just to confuse everybody in the country who follows college basketball only at tourney time.

Exactly, similar leagues now have similar names...again.

Now we just need to get change names of the MAC and the MAAC.

Who is the moron who thought that being called the Summit League sounds better than the Mid-Continent Conference. I have not been a fan of recent conference name changes; Horizon, America East, Summit, Atlantic Sun are all inferior names than the original conference name.

You know? A big part of the reason they switched to the Horizon League in the first place was because of all the confusion between Midwest Collegiate Conference and Mid-Continent Conference. Although I wouldn't call them similar leagues. It's pretty clear by how the MCC took half the league from the Mid-Con in 1995 that they're on different levels.

At least the MAC and MAAC don't represent the same part of the country... save for one city.

I disagree. I think having "Collegiate" and/or "Athletic" in every name makes them sound unnecessarily generic. But I do think conference names should refer to some kind of region. I always thought that a name like "Northern Sky Conference" or "Great Lakes Conference" made more sense than Horizon League.

It does get really confusing in Buffalo during Basketball season. Usually we say M-A-C or M-double A-C.
