The day has finally come. The University of Colorado is the newest (along with the University of Utah) member of the Pac-12 conference. Ever since the drama of last summer, the will they, won't they back and forth that had Buffalo fans crossing their fingers and hoping that everything would work out for the best, we have waited for this day to arrive. The day where we can truly stop looking back and can finally start looking forward to an exciting new chapter in Colorado's history. Kick back and reflect on it all today. There's going to be lots of bumps in the road, but we know they'll get back to where they belong.

Lots of cool stuff going on today in Boulder, take a look at the University's press release.

Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper has declared Friday, July 1, as PAC-12 DAY IN THE STATE OF COLORADO, and Boulder Mayor Susan Osborne the same as PAC-12 IN THE CITY OF BOULDER to commemorate CU's first day of membership in the Pac-12 Conference.
