USC athletic director Pat Haden says PAC-10 AD's voted on a new alignment for the new PAC-12.  According to an article in wearesc.com, PAC-10 athletic directors voted 7-5 in favor of the North-South alignment with Cal and Stanford going north.  Haden didn't seem to please with it, even though he voted for it.  Haden said “We’re going for the money, sadly, that’s what it is.  We need a conference title game. "

Haden wanted to keep the Bay Area schools to stay with them.  Haden proposed a 5-2-2 split which would allow them to play Cal and Stanford every football season.  Presidents from each PAC-12 school will vote on it next week. They'll vote on the alignment and revenue sharing October 21st.  It appears the schools favor equal revenue sharing.  Currently, it favors USC based on appearance.  Equal revenue sharing would be similar to the deals struck by the Big 10 and SEC.

Haden shared the information at a San Gabriel Valley Trojan Club dinner earlier this week.
