REPORT: Utah to join Pac-10

REPORT: “The Pacific-10 Conference will extend an invitation to the University of Utah to become the league’s 12th team, Comcast SportsNet has learned exclusively from sources close to the situation. A press conference is expected to formalize the announcement on Wednesday.”

The strategic implication is that Utah’s admission to the Pac-10 looks to fit the culture of the Pac-10 better than the addition of many of the Big XII teams.
