ABC4 Sports in Salt Lake City has posted a story suggesting the possibility that Utah — but not BYU — could be a future target for Pac-10 expansion.
Colorado also was cited in the story as a possible future Pac-10 school.
Twice the story stresses that “this is all speculation.”
Jon Wilner of the Bay Area News Group talked Monday with Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott, who said of possible expansion, “We’re looking at it very seriously.
“It wasn’t something identified for me by the presidents when I took the job. But it’s very natural as you look at the value of the conference from a media standpoint,” he said. “If we were ever going to look at expansion, this would be the logical time” (because negotiations for a new TV deal will begin next year).
