The Pac-10 told Fehlberg that BYU would need a travel partner.

--- Fehlberg suggested Utah, but the idea was dismissed immediately — BYU already brought the Utah TV market to the league. Fehlberg approached Colorado, which immediately liked the idea of joining the league. But, as Fehlberg tells it, Colorado later reneged. ---

He says CU officials told him that Texas governor Ann Richards threatened to sue if Colorado left the Big 12, which included many Texas schools. That left BYU without a travel partner. According to Fehlberg, BYU’s move to the Pac-10 was put on hold.

Look who was in a hurry to make a move without their "brother"? The both or nothing narrative is dead. (And yes I know this article is almost a year old.)
