PAC-10 HUNTS BUFFALO
Published December 22, 1994
The Pac-10 has invited the University of Colorado to join their conference. CU's Board of Regents will hold a special briefing today in Boulder to consider the invitation. This invitation comes as "a surprise on a couple of counts": 1) Colorado is part of the Big-8, and expected to be a large part of the newly created Big 12; 2) Colorado President Judith Albino is a graduate of Texas, and pushed hard for Texas to be a part "reconstituted Big Eight with the Southwest Conference members." Pac-10 officials admitted they might not stop at Colorado, and may try to lure one more school to bring the conference to 12. Pac-10 Assistant Commissioner Jim Muldron said that Texas has an open initiation to join their conference. Albino said the school would look at a number of factors before deciding "within a week or so" on a decision (Bud Withers, SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER, 12/22).
