Good luck this year. I am rooting for you guys to even your score with Cal.
The problem is that many of those articles were written by the brain damaged Chip Brown. Chip is Deloss Dodds' lapdog. I think Woelk had an article on it at some point towards the end of the process. From the CU perspective, we kept things pretty quiet until it was a done deal. Both the CU AD and the local media wanted to avoid jumping into the fray, which was probably at the behest of Larry Scott. Scott didn't care if Baylor spouted off, as they were never in the conversation to begin with. He didn't want to get a bunch of stuff coming out of Colorado and Utah that might muddy the waters with the existing Pac Presidents & ADs.
Yes, if you see the name "Chip Brown" or the phrase "big 12 missile crisis" in any article, please ignore, move on, and switch to a reputable source.
I don't know if this is will have what you are looking for ... http://www.cuatthegame.com/2010/colorado-semi-weekly-3/ ... but it is a chronicle of events I put together at CU at the Game last year as expansion story unfolded.
The first story dates back to May, when the rumblings concerning expansion got louder, through the tumultuous early weeks of June, 2010, (would CU be invited? CU v. Baylor? Pac-16?, etc.) through to August, when BYU went independent, and the Big Ten announced how the creation of its two divisions.
