    For all those Texas fans and Baylor people that think that we somehow had to beat out Baylor so we bolted early.....

    Then Scott took command of the Pac-10, made expansion a priority and gave the Buffaloes a chance to start over.
    “Part of what I did was take a step back,’’ he said. “Compared to our peers, we were smaller: We were only in four states and 16 million households. I felt we needed at least 12 teams … We needed to get bulkier.’’
    Scott presented three expansion models to the Pac-10 presidents, his targets based on geographic compatibility, cultural fit, revenue-generating potential, academic stature and commitment to a broad-based athletic program.

    Colorado was the only school that appeared in all three models.

    I'm unconvinced that we have a commitment to a broad based athletic program. Time will tell.

    I can't believe that the Pac-12 would say something so sexist.

    Liked especially comment #4 (8:59pm time since they will change with further comments)

    .

    Good for the Ute fans to recognize themselves, the Nubs fans never got this idea.:lol:

    Does it sound better if he replaces "broad based" with "Title IX"?
