Awesome work guys. And I'll give you this, it's much MUCH more productive than voting 847 times in a horizonleague.org fan poll! ;D
Some people/organizations will be more receptive to making changes than others (I would know, since I've also done this before). For the more stubborn ones, it sometimes helps to point out discrepancies in their current naming formats using other hyphanated schools. Most sites may care enough to make a change once you point at a lack of consistency. Conference USA and the A-10 are good places to always cross check with on the media site in question, as their schools are almost always referred to correctly by media outlets (i.e. Texas-El Paso as UTEP, UNC-Charlotte as Charlotte, etc)
Keep it up and good luck!
