Washington AD Addresses Rumors Pac-10 Will Expand Into Big 12

The initial report that the Pac-10 was planning a foray into the Big 12, possibly inviting six schools to join a new mega-conference, seemed fanciful at first, although the sourcing seemed reliable. After all, this offseason has been filled with rumors and subterfuge as the major conferences position and posture for survival and supremacy in the Great Realignment Battle of 2010.

But then the Colorado AD came out and admitted that their might be some truth to the rumors of the Pac-10's plan to poach half of the Big 12. And now the Washington AD, Scott Woodward, is giving us some corroboration from the Pac-10 side as well, per the Seattle Times:

There is an enormous amount of speculation about conference expansion right now and I think with the Pac-10 that anything is possible, all the way from remaining with the status quo, where we are today, to a full merger with the Big 12 and anything in between. All possibilities are viable and open for discussion.

Woodward traveled to San Francisco on Friday, where the Pac-10 is holding its annual meetings through Sunday. Given Woodward's rather candid acknowledgment that the league is considering a host of options regarding possible expansion, it wouldn't be altogether shocking if they invited prospective teams as early as next week, following the league meetings. Stay tuned.
