A little more than a year ago at the Big 12 Conference spring meetings Colorado athletic director Mike Bohn made national news by becoming the first credible voice to speak on the record about the probability of conference expansion. Until the point when he confirmed to the Daily Camera that CU was flirting with the Pac-10, conference realignment was mostly speculation.
Those Big 12 spring meetings were a media circus with a throng of television cameras and reporters surrounding any official who dared to step out of a meeting and agree to be interviewed.
A year later, the landscape has changed with Colorado now in the Pac-12 along with Utah. Nebraska in the Big Ten, TCU headed to the Big East, Brigham Young starting a solo career and Boise State heading to a Mountain West Conference that doesn’t look much different from the Western Athletic Athletic Conference the Broncos have dominated in recent years.
CU has a new football coach and is coming off maybe the best basketball season in its history. It certainly was in terms of wins (24).Buff Nation is excited about the move west and the coming football season.
These spring meetings are much more low-key without a television camera in sight. There might not be any major announcements from the Pac-12 this weekend, but the league is discussing a lot of important issues related to its future, including who it might partner with to form the Pac-12 Network.
