John Marinatto may have misspoken

+
Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott has said his league is determining if the Pac-10 and Big 12 could combine forces for a television network that would incorporate both conferences. Just like the Big East did with the Atlantic Coast Conference 11 years ago, but was shot down. "It's funny we tried to do that concept with the ACC back in 1999," Marinatto said. "We approached the ACC and we tried to get their football schools and our football schools to negotiate as one in order to drive the market place up and they weren't interested in pursuing that concept." That's an...interesting way of putting it. Quick, fire up Google! Big East commissioner Mike Tranghese told USA Today last month he twice explored the possibility of having the Big East's major football programs -- Miami, Boston College, Syracuse and Pittsburgh -- play under the ACC banner. The conference would have remained intact in all other sports. Sigh. John, John, John. Are you sure you want to stick with that story? It may very well be possible that Marinatto is referring to something else, but I have a sneaking suspicion that he's trying to pull a fast one here.
