Colorado Buffaloes Taking Advantage of being a former Big 12 Member

Have you ever wanted to just wig-out on an employer when you know your time there was short? Like, if you planned on quitting or knew you were going to be fired, so in turn you decided to make sure to humiliate every coworker you hate, yell at your boss about his habit of eating his earwax or any number of other awesome, albeit ill-advised, ideas?

Yes, those are awesome things that every employee wish they can do — and feel like it is their duty to do — when their time at a company has come to an end. So um … please refrain from doing so. You never know when you might need to cross that bridge again — so burning it will only help propel your life to the road less traveled.

And when I say less traveled, I mean it because nobody wants to walk it.

Thankfully for the Colorado Buffaloes, they didn’t burn any bridges when they left the Big 12 for the Pac 12. Now, well, they are using their old bridge to help make a new, strong non-conference schedule.

Thanks to the amicable split, Colorado has been able to secure the Kasnas Jayhawks as well as the Oklahoma State Cowboys on their schedule. Those are not only two quality opponents, but helps keep the allure of Colorado hoops’ relevancy alive.

It will also help put a national spotlight on a Colorado team most think will be very competitive and will likely live in the top-25 next season.

Next time you are quitting your job, just tell your boss thanks for the opportunity — he will get his when he hires your replacement at a cheaper rate.
