Frankly, I totally disagree with the PCAA Council when it says the conference has a name recognition problem. That's nonsense. Now if only I could recall what PCAA stands for, I'd tell you why. Wait, I remember: Pacific Coast Athletic Assn. --but maybe not for long. Seems a majority of the council members are thinking about changing the conference name. They want something a little snazzier, an acronym with sequins, something to attract attention across the country.
