Woodward talks about expansion rumors

I got a hold of UW athletic director Scott Woodward this afternoon to ask him about the expansion rumors making the rounds today.
He said that as of now, any reports are “all speculation.”
But he also said that many options remain on the table as the conference gets set to hold meetings this weekend in San Francisco, with expansion sure to be a major topic.
“There is an enormous amount of speculation about conference expansion right now and I think with the Pac-10 that anything is possible, all the way from remaining with the status quo, where we are today, to a full merger with the Big 12 and anything in between,” Woodward said Thursday afternoon. “All possibilities are viable and open for discussion.”
Woodward is headed out tomorrow morning to San Francisco where he and UW president Mark Emmert (along with senior women’s administrator Stephanie Rempe) will represent the school at Pac-10 meetings, that will be held Friday through Sunday.
Woodward said it was “too early” to make a judgment on how expansion would impact the University of Washington. “I want to make sure I’m given all the data and all the reasons why a particular institution should or shouldn’t join if we go that route,” he said.
