Brett Yormark Makes Michael Jordan-esque Statement to Announce Colorado’s Return to Big 12

‘They’re back.’



Some would call Brett Yormark the GOAT of the court of public opinion.

Colorado’s board of regents unanimously voted to rejoin the Big 12 on Thursday, leaving the Pac-12 after what will be 13 seasons. To share the news, Yormark did his best Michael Jordan impression to announce the Buffaloes’ return.

It’s a nod to MJ’s return from retirement in 1995 after he left the Bulls to pursue a professional baseball career.

The Buffaloes won’t rejoin what they left quite as quickly as Jordan did, as Jordan was back on the court the next night, scoring 19 points against the Indiana Pacers. Colorado will rejoin the Big 12 ahead of the 2024-25 school year after one more year in the Pac-12.

Jordan went on to win NBA titles with the Bulls in 1996, 1997 and 1998 — so, your move Colorado.

A Big Eight school, Colorado was with the Big 12 since its inception in 1996. The Buffs left the league for the Pac-12 in 2011. The Pac-12 has struggled to find a new TV deal with the Big 12 jumping the Pac-12 at the negotiations table. That has left the Pac without a deal entering the 2023 season, the league’s final season with its current deal. That shaky standing has now led Colorado back to the Big 12.
