Just listened to it, the "Big 10 is interested in KU" part is more lukewarm than the KU board makes it out to be. He sort of made it clear that he felt obligated to ask the Big 10 folks about Kansas, and maybe they were being kind to him, but even so his sources still mentioned a concern about whether the state of Kansas would ever let KU go without KSU.
So, the KU part is probably not a strong rumor, the only thing Harlan was adamant on is that 16 will happen, and probably 20.
