The Pac-10 athletic directors have been meeting over the last few months in an effort to hammer out the details of the Pac-12. Now that we know Colorado and Utah are both joining ahead of the 2011 season, there's a sense of urgency to get everything in place, with a decision coming as soon as mid-October.
Chip Brown is reporting this morning that the divisional split will be geographic, with Colorado and Utah joining the Northwest schools in the north.
Sources tell Orangebloods.com Pac-10 North division will be Was, WSU, Ore, Ore St., CU and Utah. South will be Cali and Arizona schools.
If true, this almost assures that an equal revenue split will follow. Of course, we've been against a geographic split that includes Colorado and Utah in the north. Even with scheduling concessions, the perception of a conference that keeps the California schools walled off from the rest of the world isn't great.
So, in the end it still means more money for WSU, but a less than ideal split.
