* Procedural issues require six votes and constitutional issues need eight. But I’ve been told that all 10 schools must sign off on expansion, which means that one president could put the kibosh on the whole thing.

Doesn't this really mean that when it comes down to it, only eight schools need to approve of expansion if those eight really want it to happen--they could change the PAC-10 expansion requirements to only need the approval of eight schools?

Looks like Art Director took some time to add a lengthy comment to that article.

Not a bad article but then come the BYU fans shitting out their biased comments and spoiling it somewhat. They're ubiquitous! Get a life BYU fans. And get used to it, the Pac 10 presidents don't like you no way no how.

DDD has to be feeling a bit vindicated reading that article.

Interesting:


For decades, the Pac-10 viewed itself (rightly or wrongly) as being on higher moral and ethical ground than the SEC and Big 12, for instance. Certainly, it viewed itself as more committed to academics than those conferences.

But if the dollars are right, Iíve been told, we might see an entirely different approach.

I'd like to bear my testimony of the truthfulness of SU's words. I have received an answer that told me to accept this and my life is much more peaceful as a result.
