07:34 AM ET 06.27 | Now that the Pac 10 has the 12-team -- not 16 -- membership it has wanted all year, the conference has to face the reality that expansion isn't as easy as it sounds. Pac 10 Commissioner Larry Scott expects to meet with conference athletic directors in July to have preliminary discussions on how to split the teams into the two six-team divisions the NCAA requires for a conference to host a championship game. Looking at the list of teams, no matter how you let it shake out, someone is going to be furious. You can either keep all the California teams together, with the Arizona teams, which would leave the Pacific Northwest, and new members Utah and Colorado. Or you can split the California teams and take it from there. Either way, it's going to be ugly, the kind of ugly that happens when money kills longstanding rivalries.

River this is another foul stinking fart that all the ND haters like to squeeze out. Come'on man!!! 2007 @ South Bend, ND-44, Navy-46 after 3 OTs.......2008 @ Baltimore, ND-27, Navy-21......... 2009 @South Bend, ND-21, Navy-23.......NDs record against Navy is 71-11-1. with 43 of them consecutive.

So what you're saying is that ND is 1-2 in the last three games against NAVY, right?
