Both Universities knows they'll be headed to the B10 soon. No point in signing a deal for less than what the B10 will offer.PAC 12 just needs to get a deal done. I doubt any PR stunts by the Big 12 are impacting the real decision makers. PAC 12 survival comes down to two things IMO:
1) Getting a media deal that's competitive with the ACC and Big 12.
2) Getting UO and UW to sign it and at least temporarily ending the Big Ten western expansion rumors.
