If you asked the man who runs the Big 12, Texas Athletic Director DeLoss Dodds, if he’d take back Colorado at this point - without Nebraska - wonder what he’d say?
For the uninformed, that’s a rhetorical question.
Now, what’s my basis for Utah joining the Pac-10?
One of CAA’s lead executives on the Pac-10 deal, Chris Bevilacqua, helped launch CSTV, the college sports network that CBS purchased in 2005 and is now known as CBS College Sports. He was also a former executive with SCP Worldwide, the entity that owns a Major League Soccer team in Salt Lake City — a potential market for Pac-10 expansion if the league ends up adding the University of Utah.
The fix may have been in all along for Utah, considering that the infamous Pac-10 plane visited Salt Lake City on June 3 and 11 - before visiting the Oklahoma and Texas schools last weekend.
So if you’re the Pac-10 today, how’s Utah and Colorado grab ya?
