According to a tweet just sent out by ESPN’s Brett McMurphy, the conference that will soon be formerly known as the Big East is leaning towards the name “America 12 Conference”.
“America 12 Conference” favorite to become new name for Big East, league sources told @espn. Not official; other names being considered

My first question is why they didn’t add an “n” to “America”. My second question is why they’d have a number in their conference name considering that a few teams (UConn, Cincinnati) would leave in a heartbeat if asked by the ACC.
But hey, these guys have been making great decisions for years, right?
America 12 Conference just sounds stupid.

That probably sums it up the best.
