PowerMizzou: Spoon eyes the future
PM: I know everybody just wants a shot in the NFL, but is there anything that stands out, maybe with William Moore in Atlanta, where you say, if I could make the pick, that's where I want to be?
SW: "I think that Atlanta pick at 19 would be legit. Mainly because I'm really comfortable with their staff. They worked me out and took a liking to me. When I went out there, Willy Mo came and picked me up took me around, showed me his place and everything."

- Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott was asked about whether long and expensive travel, not to mention a lack of interest, might damage a potential conference championship game. Perhaps, he admitted, before adding an intriguing "but": "I would not rule out an NFL-style, home-team advantage," he said.
- Scott also added that he will appoint a "TV consultant" next month to explore the conference's media options, which could include a Pac-10 network.
- First-year Big East commissioner John Marinatto said his decision to bring aboard former NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue as a consultant grew out of two things. First, he had a chance encounter with Tagliabue at a Georgetown basketball game. Second, because Delany had advised him months before to "learn to think strategically about the future." That's interesting because the strategic futures of Marinatto and Delany may be at cross purposes.
