College Football Shake-Up: Top Conference Moves and How They'll Affect the Game

The Colorado Buffs move to the Pac-10 is among the most puzzling moves in recent college football history.

#5- Colorado

Have you ever had a friend that you loved because you loved to mock them without mercy?  Yeah, I think we all have and the Pac-10 er 12 is no different.  Why else would they invite Colorado?  What other explanation could there be for extending a conference with the word "Pacific" in its name not just to Salt Lake City, but to Boulder Colorado?

There is an old Indian Proverb that says "If the soul remains the same, as will the world around you"

The Buffs are in a state of disarray and the move makes no sense whatsoever.  What did they stand to gain?  BCS Status?  They already had that in the Big 12.  Money? Maybe but at what expense? A recruiting advantage? Not when sharing with USC, Oregon and well, everyone else in the conference.

Prediction: As USC gradually begins to recover, Oregon continues its climb, Washington completes its rehab and Arizona becomes ever more threatening, Colorado once again finds itself the conference bottom feeder.   Their soul is the same, and so will the world around them be.
