USC notwithstanding, the landscape of college sports has begun to change. The Pac-10 announced on their website they are now the Pac-11 with the addition of the University of Colorado Buffaloes. The next expected move will be the Nebraska Cornhuskers to the Big 10 as early as tomorrow. Expected to join Colorado to the Pac-10 are Texas, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. Like the USC story, more to come later as the story develops.
