Over the past week, the Big 12 Conference has grown by 3 additional members (not including Colorado), the Pac-12 Conference has shrunk by 5 (those same 3 plus Oregon and Washington), and the college football world on Twitter and Reddit has come alive again with hilarious realignment memes. I asked some of our friends on the ODB Discord that seemed particularly plugged in to those memes to catalog them for a post. What they put together exceeded my expectations.
These are in no particular order. And before any angry media members try to lambaste me for seemingly taking pleasure in the Pac-12’s death...
I don’t care.
RedditCFB was particularly active in the space over the last few days, as you might expect. They’ll make a lot of appearances here. I think I’m safe saying this was commonly considered the best of the memes so far.
Utah was a common target of these memes for reasons that are immediately clear once you say anything about Utah that could be perceived as remotely negative on any form of social media.

This was my personal favorite. And there is a variation of it that is just Yormark.
Again, the Utes are a common target here.
Lots of variations with this one, too. Basically everyone on Earth has been accused of killing the Pac-12 over the last week. Just look at the next two memes in sequence.
This was basically our Discord server for 72 hours last week, through Saturday morning.
This has to be the best BIG12/PAC4 meme/Tiktok I’ve seen. Twitter made me trim it so it’s missing the first part. pic.twitter.com/Yt6p1NCLzF— Band Playing on the Titanic X (@bbart76) August 6, 2023

And another Utah one just to close things out.

Make that two.
The new Big 12 is going to be a very fun conference to watch. Every single fanbase in that league has realistic expectations or is Utah.— RedditCFB (@RedditCFB) August 5, 2023
Fine, one non-Utah, and it’s an absolute classic.
And finally, one non-meme.
