The revelation of the Gee email came on the heels of an OrangeBloods.com report stating the Pac-10 was ready to invite six Big 12 teams, including Texas, Texas A&M and Texas Tech, to join the conference.
In an email from April 19, Gee told Delany he was “of the mind that we control our destiny at the moment, but the window will soon close on us. Agility and swiftness of foot is our friend.”
In a response to that email, Delany said, “We are fast-tracking it but need to know the $ and observe contracts,” according to the report. “Also need to make sure we leverage this to increase chances of hr additions. Finally double chess # of moving parts including not harming brand as we executy.”
