There a couple threads on this from the past few days. Pretty sure he is talking about those two. Consensus that CU is NOT going back.
I certainly would hope not.
It would make no sense for CU to go back. The alumni base is in the Pac-12 footprint and this was a driving reason why RG was able to get the funding for the facilities. Even Big 12 representatives made comments about CU's decision to leave relating to them understanding because it made better sense for a lot of reasons.
Anyway, speculation that CU might return to the Big 12 is uninformed and anyone who has written that is an embarrassment to journalism.
If we left, we'd probably hold dozens of records for football futility in the Pac12 that would never be broken. We can't leave on that note.
Rick George spent enough time in the Metroplex to get a whiff of the stink of the Big Texoma footprint and understand that is a balance of power that absolutely does not favor CU. The pull of the state of California is much different in the Pac-12 as others have mentioned because of the alumni numbers. There is no way we build on any momentum we've gained by stepping back to that old ball and chain.
Two looking to get back in, and 6 looking to leave. They could be the Big XII-2+1-1+1-1-6+2. This would be the perfect league for ****brass. Mizzu, ISU, KSU, Baylor, and Tech would be perfect for them.
no way it's us.
K-State guy at work asked me about it. He'd read it in Bleacher Reports. I'd never heard that rumor. I told him our fund raising has gone way up since we moved and there is no way in hell we'd go back.
