With the Pac-12 continuing to search for a media deal, Colorado Chancellor Phil DiStefano has been the latest to state a desire to remain in the Pac-12.

But he didn’t COMPLETELY shut the door on a conference move one day.

For Colorado, not even Deion Sanders changes where they fit into the ongoing realignment puzzle.

Today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12 is a crossover with Josh Neighbors of Locked On Big 12.

They discuss how Coach Prime, seemingly always in the headlines, handles the media and whether that could become problematic down the line for him.

The Pac-12 and the Big 12 will basically have automatic access to the College Football Playoff with the six highest-rated conference champions automatically getting bids starting in 2024.

Getting multiple teams into the CFP, however, will not be a cakewalk given the evolving landscape of College Football.
