Well, here’s a nice way to make a slow day more interesting.
Here’s the tweet from Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News:
Source: USC and UCLA are planning to leave for the Big Ten as early as 2024. Move *has not been finalized* at the highest levels of power.— Jon Wilner (@wilnerhotline) June 30, 2022
Would USC president Carol Folt and (more importantly) UCLA chancellor Gene Block approve this?
Block almost hates sports so it would be big for him to agree. It’s also hard to imagine USC athletes having to fly to Maryland for a women’s volleyball game.
Obviously, the money would be temping. Is this all one way for USC and UCLA to get a bigger share of revenue from the Pac-12 like it used to?
Would Lincoln Riley like it? He already came to USC to avoid the SEC.
The Athletic has confirmed the story so the conversations are real.
If nothing else, it halts are the media’s fawning coverage of George Kliavkoff.
