 Craziest sports day?

Does anyone agree that this could be one of the craziest sports news days we've seen in awhile? Especially considering that the two major sporting events right now, the NBA Finals, and the World Cup had nothing to do with it...

First, Colorado has agreed to join the Pac-10. By itself, that's a big deal. But that could be a sign of a lot more teams changing conferences too. If the Big 12 somehow does survive, it won't be the same at all. We could be looking at a lot different set-up of teams.

And USC received a postseason ban today for their football and basketball teams. Stemming from mostly Reggie Bush, and O.J. Mayo they're in pretty hot water now. It makes sense why Carroll left when he did. They've been a consistent powerhouse, but maybe not for much longer - and who knows if they'll recover to where they were.

To top it all off, Tom Izzo is considering joining the Cavs as their head coach. This may fall through and prove to be nothing but a false alarm, but if it happens it could shake up Michigan State dramatically and have a big impact on the NBA (Will LeBron stay or go?).

The crazy thing about all these stories is that we may still be talking about them 5-10 years from, if not longer. Conference realignment could shake up the whole college football dynamic which would have the longest impact. And USC ending their mini dynasty (they've lost 30 scholarships in addition to the ban) could be pointed to this. Plus, the underappreciated story in all this is how Izzo (or whoever takes the Cavs job) might impact everything. If LeBron wins multiple championships in Cleveland in the next couple years, we could be calling his new coach the "missing piece" he never had. And he'll go down as one the greatest players. Or if he doesn't, then the blame might be split between that coach and LeBron. Or they might hire a coach to watch LeBron leave right afterward, and that coach would be forever blamed with running him out of town... who knows.
