I’m hearing mixed reactions from USC fans about today’s news.
Some are ecstatic at the schedule upgrade. Others find it ridiculous that USC teams are going to travel 3,000 miles for league games.
One thing is certain: USC coaches will no longer get free rides with games in Tucson, Pullman, Corvallis, etc.
If things stay as they currently are (which is unlikely), USC’s road trips for football and basketball are going to be brutal.
Imagine USC going to play in the snow at Michigan State, Minnesota or Wisconsin?
The Big Ten teams who come out once a year to L.A. have it easy. USC and UCLA and going to be going through all the hardships.
I already said Lincoln Riley won’t like it. Chip Kelly really won’t like it.
