A well written realist look at Big Ten and Pac-10 Expansion, from the (hypothetical) desk of Bill Powers.

Pac-10 to take 'serious' look at expansion

Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott said Tuesday that within the next year, conference leadership will engage in "serious analysis" of expanding its membership. Scott said the timetable will allow for conference officials to know its membership as it negotiates new TV contracts, likely to occur in 2011. The move also answers the Big Ten's internal discussions of possibly growing to 12 teams, which has sparked discussion among administrators at Pac-10 schools. Scott said he will not establish a committee to explore expansion, leaving the chore to the league's presidents. "With an issue as important to the future of the conference as its makeup," he saidin a teleconference, "it's going to be dealt with directly by them."
