• Comcast SportsNet reports that the Pac-10 will invite Utah to join the conference and will hold a press conference later today to make it official.
• Rachel Bachman says that Larry Scott's push for a failed Pac-10 super conference is a sign of things to come.

The original article that Moseley links to says that if and when Colorado joins the conference we will likely split into northern and southern divisions.
Oregon joining OSU, Washington, WSU, Stanford and California in a Northern section, with USC, UCLA, Arizona, ASU, Colorado and presumably Utah in the Southern division.
Of course, all this needs to be taken with a grain of salt as we have learned in the ever changing expansion stories of the last few days.
