Now It's 11

Breaking news: Colorado just said "yes" to the Pac-10. But don't get any Pac-11 stationery printed yet.

There's an epic game of musical chairs underway in college sports right now. Hell, by the time you read this, the Pac-10 might be as big as 16 teams. The common thinking had been that Colorado, Texas, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State would split from a crumbling Big 12 and join the Pac-10.

But some think the SEC might get involved and perhaps pluck Texas A&M. That would leave the Pac-10 with 15, so then maybe Baylor gets an invitation. And so on and so on.

More tomorrow. Until then, consider the possibility of a Pac-10 with USC on probation and bazillionaire boosters Phil Knight (Oregon) and T. Boone Pickens (Oklahoma State) squaring off.
