Ever since USC and UCLA decided to move to the Big Ten, I’ve wondered if the UC Regents might make UCLA give some of its newfound money to Cal as a way to lessen the financial blow to the Bears.
Well, Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News reports it is something being considered. Now a lot of time these big bureaucratic organizations discuss things and nothing happens.
But if the Regents decide to reduce UCLA’s state allocations as a way to subsidize Cal’s athletic department, it would make the Big Ten move less attractive. How much less? That depends on how much money would be involved.
Again, let’s see what (if anything) actually happens down the road.
- John Canzano reports that UCLA athletic director Martin Jarmond has been removed from his five-year term on the men’s basketball NCAA Tournament selection committee by the Pac-12 and replaced by Arizona athletic director Dave Heeke.
Canzano said the Pac-12 also contacted USC athletic director Mike Bohn about whether he would be allowed to participate in athletic director meetings scheduled in Los Angeles next week.
