Scott to present expansion options to Pac-10 presidents/CEOs today

Looking like today’s conclusion to the Pac-10 meetings in San Francisco could be pretty momentous.
There are varying reports that the Seattle Times has confirmed this morning that Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott will recommend to the Pac-10 presidents and CEOs a variety of expansion options.
Word is the preferred one will be the so-called Pac-16, adding six Big 12 teams to the mix. What Scott will apparently hope for is that he will get approval to begin talking to those schools with the intent of soon issuing official inivitations. OrangeBloods.com is reporting that such an expansion could be worth $20 million per school
One person told the Times that the “conversations could start immediately” if Scott gets the approval today.
Still at issue is exactly which six Big 12 teams the Pac-10 will approach with some reports saying that the conference may have to take Baylor instead of Colorado to appease the Texas Legislature. (And there’s one thought that both Baylor and Colorado could be included at the exclusion of either Oklahoma State and/or Texas Tech). Regardless, Texas, Texas A&M and Oklahoma are all givens in any Pac-16 scenario, which would obviously be a cataclysmic change for not only the conference, but college athletics.
Helping force the timeline are the reports that Nebraska and Missouri have been given a deadline of this Friday to declare whether they will remain in the Big 12. (Those are linked here).
Apparently, one thought is that conference title games could be held at both the Rose Bowl and the new Dallas Cowboys stadium (obviously in alternating years).
Scott is scheduled to meet with the media today after the Pac-10 meetings conclude.
