Bohn Confirms Colorado to be in the Pac-10 South, Trying to Start Play in 2011

39

From John Henderson of the Denver Post, Colorado athletic director Mike Bohn has stated the Buffaloes will be in the South division of the Pac-10 with USC, UCLA, Arizona, Arizona State and Utah: Playing in a south division instead of a north with the Bay Area, Oregon and Washington schools was a must for Colorado to accept an invitation. Its largest out-of-state alumni base is in southern California. "That is a huge boost for us," Bohn said. "The southern division for the University of Colorado provides many opportunities that are keys to reaching our alumni to our recruiting and to enhance media exposure that connects best to the Denver market." A week ago, college sources said Utah was out of Pac-10 consideration. However, on Monday Texas chose to stay in the Big 12 and Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech all followed. Utah will allow the Pac-10 to have convenient travel partners throughout the league. The Pac-10 also has the minimum 12 schools to put on a league championship game. Bohn said next on his agenda is to push the first year of Pac-10 competition from the 2012 football season to 2011.
