CU to the Pac-10?

A report in the Boulder Daily Camera today has me all excited.  The report says that CU joining the Pac-10 is coming closer to reality.  A more detailed article on how we got here was posted yesterday on the CBS Sports.com.

Academically CU is better aligned with the Pac-10, but the best argument in favor of this move is to tap alumni donors on the west coast.  With such a high percentage of out-of-state students coming from California it could revitalize donations at a time when state budgets are strangling CU programs.  Similarly, my guess is that Colorado has more alumni from Pac-10 schools living in the state than from Big 12 schools .

Let’s git er done.
