PAC-10 HUNTS BUFFALO

     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).
