Tuesday links — Conferences talk expansion, and a QB set to make his decision

Whether there really will be expansion — massive, minimal, or anything in between —- may start to become known this week as various conferences hold their spring meetings.
That includes the Pac-10, scheduled to meet later this week in San Francisco. There’s no shortage of speculation about what may happen, and Bud Withers attempted to break it all down in this story for today’s paper that included a few comments from UW athletic director Scott Woodward. Withers writes what I’ve heard as well — the conference may be deciding that the long-speculated Utah-Colorado duo may not pencil out as worth it to add, with the focus then on seeing if Texas becomes available (surely bringing with it Texas A&M).
In other expansion news:
Greg Hansen of the Arizona Daily Star says that the conference doesn’t need to expand, just negotiate a better TV deal.
Jon Wilner writes that the best bet for real action this week is at the Mountain West meetings, as the MWC may set in motion adding Boise State.
— Here’s a preview of the Big 12 meetings from the Kansas City Star.
— The Orlando Sentinel has some links, as well.
Tony Barnhart has a list of five things on the agenda at the SEC meetings, including expansion.
IN NON-EXPANSION NEWS. …
— Scout.com writes that Bakersfield QB Cody Kessler will make his decision this week. Kessler visited UW the last week of spring practice and said his top four are USC, UW, Boise State and Pitt with UCLA and Alabama also in it. Kessler is reported to be one of two uncommitted QBs to which UW currently has offers, the other being Brett Hundley of Chandler, Ariz. Getting a QB is vital in any class, but with just two scholarship QBs set to return after the 2010 season, the Huskies may be looking at signing two in 2011.
Ted Miller is beginning his countdown of the top 25 players in the Pac-10 with UCLA kicker Kai Forbath. I imagine a Husky or two or three will make the list later.
All for now.
