Is the Pac-10 becoming King Ghidorah?

Stewart Mandel's SI.com article on the rise of Oregon, Arizona, and Stanford in the Pac-10 has an alarming title:  "Pac-10 becoming three-headed monster worthy of our respect." Well, that's scary. Imagine the Pac-10 mutating into this:



King Ghidorah, the infamous Japanese kaiju. With three heads that can generate gravity beams from each of its mouths.

Of course, this brings up the question "If the Pac-10 is King Ghidorah, what kind of kaiju are the other BCS conferences?"

The Big East - Mothra


Mothra is a giant female mothlike kaiju. Appropriate for the Big East, since the most conference's most ferocious is the UConn women's basketball team.

Big 12 - Rhodan


A giant prehistoric birdlike monster. Also, highly overrated.

Big Ten - Gamera



Maybe the ACC would be more appropriate because of the  Maryland Terrapin connection, but Gamera is one of the legends of  kaiju and only the Big Ten would suffice for such a personage as he.

ACC - Megalon


A sea monster that faced Godzilla. Also, a bit of a wuss.

And speaking of the Big Guy:

The SEC - Godzilla




'Nuff said.
