I wish George Kliavkoff would say who he is talking about when he keeps saying people from UCLA and to a lesser extent, USC, are upset about the move to the Big Ten.
“It’s clear that UCLA and USC made a decision for short-term financial gain at the expense of their student-athletes,” Kliavkoff told The Athletic. “It’s 100 percent clear to me. It’s really unfortunate, and I think they are already regretting it, given the pushback that they’ve gotten from almost every corner of their communities. I think they will regret it more as time goes on. “
Are the fans upset? I haven’t seen too much of that. Are the baseball coaches upset? Probably but they don’t count much. Who is he talking about? The athletes? I doubt the non-football athletes will like the travel but will they transfer over it?
The UC Regents? That’s legit. But Kliavkoff should say that. His general comments lack credibility when he talks about regret. You know any other school in the Pac-12 would jump right now if the Big Ten called.
- Four-star safety-cornerback Braxton Myers, who is committed to USC, visited Mississippi over the weekend and there is a lot of buzz he will flip to Lane Kiffin.
- Former USC wide receiver Bru McCoy, who had been waiting to be cleared, practiced this morning with Tennessee.
