Pac-10 Commissioner Larry Scott responded to a report from Orangebloods.com that his league plans to invite six Big 12 schools for membership.
Those schools include Texas, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Colorado.
“We are aware of a story filed today by an Orangebloods.com columnist, speculating about possible expansion plans for the Pac-10 Conference,” Scott said. “While many interesting scenarios have been suggested in numerous news reports, around the country, we remain focused on a thorough evaluation process that examines all of the options for increasing the value of the Conference for our member institutions, our student athletes and our fans. We have not developed any definitive plans. We have not extended any invitations for expansion and we do not anticipate any such decisions in the near term.”
But he didn’t say no, did he? The plot gets thicker by the minute. Big 12 Commissioner Dan Beebe expects to respond to the report within the next few minutes.
