COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - An e-mail sent by the president of Ohio State to thecommissioner of the Big Ten hints that the conference is pursuingTexas as part of its expansion plans.
Ohio State President Gordon Gee told Big Ten Commissioner JimDelany in an April 20 e-mail that Gee had spoken with University ofTexas president Bill Powers.
In the e-mail obtained by The Associated Press, Gee writes thatPowers would welcome a call to say they have a "Tech" problem.
It's not clear what that means, but Texas Tech is one of Texas'rivals in the Big 12 conference.

The e-mails were first reported by The Columbus Dispatch.
