Related Topics: Colorado, Todd Saliman

Thursday, the University of Colorado Board of Regents voted to rejoin the Big 12, a move that was instantly approved by Big 12 officials bringing one of the original members of the league back home. Of course, despite the fact that this move was rumored for months, this shakeup has dominated the world of college sports.

“The landscape of collegiate sports is ever-evolving, and the University of Colorado Boulder has determined the Big 12 is the best future fit for our athletic teams,” CU President Todd Saliman said on Thursday.

Colorado has been in a big-time conference since 1948 when they were part of the Big 7, which would become the Big 8 in 1957.
