Hoo boy, what a week it’s been for the Big 12 Conference.
Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott emerged from the final day of conference meetings Sunday and announced that university presidents and chancellors have given him all the authority he needs to expand the Pac-10.
“What direction that process takes still could go in different directions, everything from remaining as we are as a Pac-10 that’s got some very bright days ahead of it to a bigger conference footprint,” Scott said. “I have the authority to take it in different directions, depending on various scenarios and discussions we’re going to have.”
What does it all mean? It means the Big 12 Conference is about to split again, and possibly some teams going to the Pac 10, or all teams going to the Pac 10, or some teams going to the Big 10, and on and on it goes. No one knows for certain where this will all end up. But apparently, Nebraska holds a lot of cards for some reason.
