Football/basketball: Hello, Utah?

ESPN.com now is aligning more with the Orangebloods.com report, citing a source that the proposal to keep the Big 12 together with the remaining 10 teams is “gaining traction.” The remaining Big 12 teams are meeting today to discuss their options, but it sounds like the proposed finanical terms of the new-look conference would be comparable to what the schools would get in the Pac-10. If that’s the case, we may have a second “Big Ten” on our hands.

That also means the Pac-10 will be left scrambling to add at least one more school, with Utah being the most likely candidate.
