Sark talks expansion on College Football Live

UW coach Steve Sarkisian was a guest on ESPN’s College Football Live today, which you can see most easily again at 4 p.m. today on ESPN2.
It was a short phone interview with John Saunders at the start of the show and centered on expansion. For the most part, it repeated what was covered in the interview on 710 ESPN Seattle earlier in the day (and covered in the post below).
The most interesting new thing he said came when asked his thoughts on how likely this all is to happen
“I think this thing has life, it has legs, and I guess as of right now we’re at a 50-50 (chance of it happening),” he said. “The ball is obviously not in my court to make this decision. We’ll see what happens with it. But either way we go, I think the Pac-10 conference is going to be very strong.”
Also in expansion news today, looks as if the deadline for Missouri to declare its loyalty to the Big 12 is June 17. As the story notes, however, it’s still a little unclear what the deadline actually means — does the Big 12 really kick out Missouri it if doesn’t say something?
