How does the Pac-11 sound?
The University of Colorado at Boulder has accepted an invitation to join the Pac-10, the conference’s first expansion since the Arizona schools in 1978.
“This is an historic moment for the Conference, as the Pac-10 is poised for tremendous growth,” conference commissioner Larry Scott said. “The University of Colorado is a great fit for the Conference both academically and athletically and we are incredibly excited to welcome Colorado to the Pac-10.”
This is only the tip of the iceberg, it seems, but the fit is at least a bit logical. Rumors about Colorado joining the Pac-10 have been swirling for quite some time.
“The University of Colorado is a perfect match – academically and athletically – with the Pac-10,” said University of Colorado President Bruce D. Benson. “Our achievements and aspirations match those of the universities in the conference and we look forward to a productive relationship.”
