    [​IMG]After one of its members officiallly left for the Pac-10, Big 12 commissioner Dan Beebe released a statement on Thursday afternoon.
    The Big 12 Conference has been informed that the University of Colorado has accepted an invitation to join the Pacific-10 Conference.* I continue to work through the process that was agreed upon last week by our Board of Directors to address membership issues, and are working tirelessly towards the long-term viability of the Big 12. ​
    Beebe's come under heavy criticism throughout the realignment process for making the conference appear reactive rather than proactive, among other things. This statement won't help that. But Beebe has maintained all along that the conference preferred to remain at 12 teams, rather than expand like the Big Ten or Pac-10.

    He maintains he's done all he can do to save the conference, at least in its current form. He probably has. But as of this morning, he's officially failed.
