Pac-10 commish Larry Scott to meet with media on Sunday

According to the reports, doesn’t sound as if there is definitive yet that has emerged from the Pac-10 regarding expansion as the conference holds meetings in San Francisco.
But the media is scheduled to at least hear from Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott on Sunday afternoon when things could become a little clearer.
That news is included in this story from ESPN.com that provides an overview of what has happened so far, and includes a quote from UW athletic director Scott Woodward.
Also breaking tonight is the news that the Big 12 may have given Nebraska and Missouri a deadline of next Friday to declare if they are in or out — and if they say they are out, then the dominoes obviously could start falling quickly.
Another piece of new speculation today is that Legislators in Texas might try to force the Pac-10 to invite Baylor instead of Colorado if the conference really decides to invite six Big 12 teams — the feature schools of which are Texas and Texas A&M.
HERE ARE SOME MORE EXPANSION-RELATED LINKS:
John Henderson of the Denver Post, who worked for a time as a reporter in the Seattle area, is covering the Pac-10 meetings and filed this story early this morning and quotes WSU AD Bill Moos saying the Northwest schools will fight to maintain an annual presence in LA and the Bay Area.
— Here’s a good story from The Kansas City Star detailing why the Big 12 is falling apart. It paints a somewhat ominous picture of the potential future of college athletics, stating that one of the main reasons the Big 12 is breaking apart is that it was formed for purely business purposes and that there isn’t a legacy of trust leading to some disagreements from the very beginning.
All for now.
