Andy Katz of ESPN is reporting that the Pac-10 is nearing a compromise on divisions. A North-South split, with Colorado and Utah joining the South with the Arizona schools, USC and UCLA; and Cal and Stanford grouped with the Pacific Northwest schools.
That matches what we’ve been hearing over the last couple of weeks. One part of the compromise, we’ve heard, is that Cal and Stanford would get “extra” games against SC and UCLA, with Colorado and Utah not playing those schools as often as they would under a “normal” division scheduling matrix.
That’s not a bad deal for Colorado. Still gives the Buffs a visit to Los Angeles every year (fertile recruiting territory). Downside is not as many trips to the Bay Area, where CU has lots of alums.
