Larry Scott says no offers in "near term"

Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott released this statement Thursday night:

“We are aware of a story filed today by an Orangebloods.com columnist, speculating about possible expansion plans for the Pac-10 Conference. While many interesting scenarios have been suggested in numerous news reports, around the country, we remain focused on a thorough evaluation process that examines all of the options for increasing the value of the conference for our member institutions, our student athletes and our fans. We have not developed any definitive plans. We have not extended any invitations for expansion and we do not anticipate any such decisions in the near term.”

Define "near term."

Meanwhile, Texas Tech AD Gerald Myers tried to stay loyal:

"My position right now is that we're committed to the Big 12," Myers told the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal.

Yeah, but check back in five minutes.

"We want the Big 12 to stay whole. The Big 12's been a great conference for all of the membership. Our interest is in continuing to be a Big 12 member and hoping that the conference stays intact, completely intact, with all 12 members."

Friday is going to be a huge day in college athletics. The Pac-10 meetings begin in San Francisco.  The Big 12's Dan Beebe has to say something the same day as the Big 12 meetings wrap up.

Somethings going on out there. These administrators are acting like they have been approached by the Pac-10 but were embarrassed that their secret is out.

Maybe. Probably.

That is one explanation. There are others.
