Surprising no one, the Pac-11 has now invited Utah to be its 12th member, an invitation that will likely be considered for all of five seconds before being formally accepted at a board of trustees meeting tomorrow at 12:30 p.m.
How in doubt is the outcome of that vote? The results will be discussed at a 1 p.m. press conference. So, not at all, really.
While Colorado might have to pay the Big 12 about $9 million as part of a buyout clause, no such penalty exists for Utah to leave the MWC.
Well played, sirs. Well played.
I can't find any word on when exactly the Utes would begin playing in the Pac-12, which could play a major role in whether the Mountain West gets AQ status in the BCS.
Stayed tuned, folks. This is almost over.
