Colorado Athletic Director Mike Bohn Says That He Expects Pac-10 Offers

It just got real. In what is basically the first confirmation from someone who would actually know, CU AD Mike Bohn told Kyle Ringo that he does expect the Pac-10 to extend an offer to join the conference to six Big 12 schools.

Colorado athletic director Mike Bohn said he and other school officials have been led to believe the Pac-10 Conference is on the verge of issuing invitations to six members of the Big 12 to join its ranks.

Bohn said CU has not had any contact with the Pac-10 or its representatives and he was not clear on how he came to believe invitations could be forthcoming. But he said Colorado, Texas, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech could receive invitations possibly as soon as this weekend when Pac-10 officials meet in San Francisco.

"The longer that we were together in Kansas City it appeared that that rumor or speculation did have some validity to it," Bohn said in an interview with the Camera as he left the Big 12 spring meetings here today.

Well here we go.  These next few weeks are going to be very, very interesting. So much for the slow season...
