Thursday night links — Pac-10 divisions nearing finalization?

Word is breaking tonight that the Pac-10 ADs apparently voted 7-5 to split the divisions with the four Northwest schools aligning with Cal and Stanford, with the other six in a southern division.
Ted Miller has news of it here, as does Jon Wilner, each noting the protests of USC AD Pat Haden that were first made public by WeAreSC.com. This alignment is one we’ve written on here had appeared to be becoming the favorite in the clubhouse. This is also one that would be favored by UW.
Pac-10 presidents and CEOs are set to decide all of this once and for all next week. Interestingly, Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott will be in Seattle this weekend for the UW-Oregon State game and will address the media while he is here, so we’ll see what he says about this then.
IN OTHER NEWS. …
— In case you’ve forgotten — and how could you? — it’s Purple and Gold Day tomorrow in the state of Washington, as decreed by Gov. Chris Gregoire. Or, as they call it on the other side of the state, Crimson and Gray Day. (Sorry, it’s been a long week). Anyway, wear your purple tomorrow, but also wear your gold or else everyone may just think you’re a big Prince fan.
— There are some OSU injury updates at the bottom of this story, notably that WR Markus Wheaton, C Alex Linnenkohl and G Grant Johnson all returned to practice Thursday but were limited.
— The Oregonian also has a story on UW having already offered one of the top junior lineman in the state of Oregon.
— The Oregonian also has a really nice feature on OSU DT Stephen Paea, who delayed his entry to the NFL for a year to come back for his senior season.
All for now.
