    Pac 10 board give ok to pursue expansion

    SAN FRANCISCO -- The Pac-10 board has given commissioner Larry Scott the authority to pursue any possible expansion for the conference.

    Scott spoke following the conclusion of the conference meetings in San Francisco on Sunday. Earlier in the day, he addressed the chancellors and presidents about possible expansion and was given authority to move ahead without having to go back to the board for approval.
    Scott says no final decision has been made whether to expand but many different scenarios were discussed this weekend. There have been reports that the conference could add as few as two teams or as many as six if it does expand.
    The conference will decide its future plans by the end of the year before negotiating a new television contract for the 2012-13 academic year.

    Re: Pac 10 board give ok to pursue expansion

    According to the American-Statesman, the six schools would be more inclined to accept the Pac-10's offer if Nebraska and Missouri were interested in leaving the Big 12, as their departures could lead to the conference's dissolution.
    The Big 12's ultimatum really is geared toward Nebraska, according to OrangeBloods.com. The conference believes it could survive without Missouri but not without the Cornhuskers. The decision date of roughly June 15 coincides with a meeting of the Nebraska Board of Regents in Lincoln next weekend.
    However, neither Nebraska nor Missouri has been formally invited to join the Big Ten, which has said it could take up to 18 months to decide whether it wants to expand.

    UPDATE 4:31 p.m. ET: Here's a tweet from Pete Thamel of the New York Times, one that will make Buff Nation very ****** off. And fans of Oklahoma State and Texas Tech somewhat concerned.


    Source: Baylor appears to have bumped Colo in Pac-10 expansion. Also, Pac-10 pres have concern over TT and OSU academics.

    They said something about a concert...



    Green hills for thy throne, and for crown a golden melody/Ringing in the hearts of all who bring thee love and loyalty/Dear Alma Mater, make our spirits great
    True and valiant like the bells of I-O-WA STATE!

    And thank you Stumpy for this:
