Actual movement on the Utah front, and Te’o-Nesheim signs

While sources and all reports have said throughout that Utah to the Pac-10 would happen, and happen soon, details are starting to emerge as to the how and when.
Lya Wodraska, who covers Utah for the Salt Lake Tribune, reports that the school’s Board of Trustees will meet Thursday at 12:30 p.m. to approve the move. Assuming they do, an announcement could come any time thereafter.
UPDATE: 12:25 P.M. — Sources have told the Times that an official announcement could, in fact, could in a few hours. So this will all become official today.
So it’s a done deal that Utah will officially be in the Pac-10, as a 12th member (and no, not sure yet if they decide to change the name or just leave it, the way the others are apparently doing) and expansion for this year will be over (and who knows for how long from here?)
Still lots of other unresolved questions — do they start playing in 2011 or 2012? And how will the divisions be split? What we do now for know is that the Pac-12 is reality.
Here’s ESPN.com’s wrapup of Utah to the Pac-10, also reporting that an announcement could come as soon as Friday.
Also worth linking is this AP story that Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott says he has no animosity toward anyone over the failure of the Pac-16 to work out (I would imagine there will be a more complete version of this story soon).
And finally, the Eagles have signed former Husky Daniel Te’o-Nesheim to a four-year contract.
According to Scout.com, the deal guarantees Te’o-Nesheim $740,000.
