NCAA Football: UCLA at Southern California Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

We’re in the midst of one of the crazier NBA off-seasons in recent memory, yet college football is finding a way to share a large portion of the headlines each day despite being two months from kickoff.

Dennis Dodd of CBS Sports reported on Tuesday that there are conversations involving the Big 12 to potentially add up to six Pac-12 teams after UCLA and USC head to the Big Ten. Dodd says that the Big 12 is reportedly looking at Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado and Utah as some of the teams on their radar.

Of course there is the possibility of a Big 12/PAC-12 merger and there are also massive TV Deals that need to play out before any decisions are made. However, this is once again more proof that we live in a new era of pro-mobility.

Whether it’s for star athletes or star universities, moving around and “trying new things” is the trend. It’s also become somewhat of a norm for constant drama and post-4th of July fireworks in college football.

Needless to say, this isn’t the beginning and most definitely won’t be the end of programs considering a move to another conference. You can read Dodd’s full story here.
