Pac-12 reportedly in danger of collapse
Conference realignment has caused a lot of changes across the college football landscape and there has been the general thought that it could eventually lead to the demise of some conferences.
The Pac-12 could be one of them. According to a report from CBS Sports, the Big Ten’s pursuit of four schools within the conference could lead to the eventual collapse of the Pac-12. Big Ten commissioner Kevin Warren has continued to seek an offer from Amazon or possibly another partner for additional Big Ten football media rights revenue.
And that could have impact on swaying Big Ten presidents to add the likes of California, Oregon, Stanford and Washington. That could spell demise for the Pac-12 and could lead to additional movement of teams.
It will be interesting to see how this shakes out between the two conferences, but as long as conference realignment continues with amount of moving parts there are, one thing that is for certain is that the sport is going to continue to evolve and it’s easy to get the sense that some significant changes like this one are on the horizon.
