McLaughlin: Could Pac-12 and ACC’s Futures be Intertwined?

Spencer is joined by Candace Cooper of 'Locked On ACC' to talk about the fate of the two leagues

The Pac-12 and ACC have both had their futures questioned in matters of existence as the college sports landscape shifts heavily towards the Big Ten and the SEC.

If no moves on that front materialize for remaining member schools, the leagues could do well to be friendly and proactive to help themselves out.

Could they merge?

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, I’m joined by Candace Cooper of ‘Locked On ACC’.

They discuss the potential of such a concept the likes of which we haven’t seen—which in today’s era, seems to indicate it’s a potential possibility.

After the ‘Magnificent 7’ made headlines about wanting to break away from the ACC, talks along that front have quieted down.
