|Big Ten Expansion Talks Appear to be on Agenda
|ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- The Chicago Tribune is reporting that high-ranking representatives of the Big Ten were to discuss accelerating the timetable for a decision on possible expansion.
The Tribune cited unidentified sources in its report.
The Association of American Universities is meeting in Washington, D.C., through Tuesday. All the Big Ten schools are AAU members.
University of Michigan president Mary Sue Coleman and Michigan State president Lou Anna K. Simon, their schools confirmed Sunday, were among the university leaders who planned to attend the AAU meetings.
Big Ten spokesman Scott Chipman could not confirm whether commissioner Jim Delany would be at the AAU meetings. Delany is scheduled to be in Arizona later in the week for BCS meetings.
