Time to retire the Stagg CCG trophy

After this year, the B1G is expanding and realigning, so let's retire it. Outside the fact that it has been tarnished by originally being associated with a certain PSU coach, the name really isn't fitting for the conference championship game trophy as Chicago is not a B1G member any more, and it is insulting to the school that made the Big Ten, ten. Instead let's replace it with one named after a former Golden Gopher player, assistant at Michigan under Crisler and head coach at MSU: Clarence E. Munn. All "Biggie" did as coach was win the Big Ten, go to the Rose Bowl and win that. And that was after waiting 3 years without being eligible to go to a bowl game, while running up an undefeated streak of 28 games and a national championship. The trophy could be inscribed with one of his favorite quotes "the difference between good and great is just a little extra effort" and called simply the Biggie.
Every true football power should want to play for the Biggie. We could be justified that in claiming the SEC championship doesn't matter.
