Utah Officially Joining Pac-10

A press conference is scheduled tomorrow at 1pm mountain time and Utah will officially announce they are going to the Pac-10. There is the formality of Utah's Board of Trustees who will hold a public meeting Thursday at 12:30 p.m. (mst).  Do not expect any votes to stay in the Mountain West the money is too big and it will be nearly seven fold in television money:

The biggest payoff for the Utes should be in TV revenue. For the 2008-09 year the Utes reported just $1.2 million in TV revenue from the MWC. Teams in the Pac-10 make $8-10 million. A new TV agreement is expected to increase that amount.

Following the Utah press conference, Mountain West commissioner Craig Thompson is holding a teleconference at 2pm (mst) where he most likely will discuss Utah leaving the Mountain West.
