The new divisions for the Pac-10 are not set, but USC athletic director Pat Haden gave a hint as to what they will be at a booster club meeting in San Gabriel, Calif., on Wednesday night.

And, he is not overjoyed with the split.

"We're going for the money, sadly; that's what it is," Haden said. "We need a conference title game."

Athletic directors voted 7-5 on the alignment -- Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, UCLA, USC and Utah in one division and Cal, Oregon, Oregon State, Stanford, Washington and Washington State -- in the other, Haden said. The presidents of the schools will vote on it later this month.

"I told [the rest of the athletic directors] my alumni will kill me if we donít play the Northern California schools," Haden said.

"I proposed a 5-2-2 model that has us playing the five schools [in our division] every year and then have the Northern California schools as part of our regular two and then rotate the other two. We need to play Stanford and Cal."
