WSU and OSU have released a joint statement following their decision to bring forth 24 pages worth of “facts” that they claim prove UW is involved in a “Lawyer created contrivance.”
The two schools stated, “Today Oregon State and Washington State asked the court to confirm that the departing schools lost their Board seats following their notices of withdrawal from the conference. The evidence we have uncovered thus far in discovery overwhelmingly shows this is consistent with the position that the conference and the departing members themselves had taken up until just weeks before Oregon State and Washington State were forced to file our litigation… The Pac-12 cannot continue to be paralyzed at such a critical time. We did not create or seek these circumstances, but OSU and WSU will continue to take whatever actions are necessary to protect our universities, ensure accountability and transparency, and safeguard our student-athletes and the Pac-12 Conference, while preserving our options moving forward. The future of the Pac-12 should be decided by the schools that stay, not those that leave.”
