Rumors have it that Washington and Oregon reached out to the BIG but were told they were standing pat for now. Washington and Oregon leaving has the Pac12 reeling at the moment. Washington and Oregon have few options available. Just a what if they joined the Big 12? The Big 12 is still recovering from Texas and Oklahoma bailing out. Washington and Oregon have more curb appeal than the four teams they have added. This would give the Big 12 geographical presence in the Northwest. As long as we are just throwing out possibilities what if the Pac12 and Big 12 consolidated? This would result in a 22 team conference stretching from Seattle to Orlando. This would put them in a competitive position with the BIG and the SEC. Just food for thought.
