UCLA and USC to the Big 10

Just saw this on The Athletic, seems to have credibility. Here we go again with conference realignment bingo.

PAC10 will now be ruled by Oregon.

It's looking like a done deal. Apparently UCLA and USC initiated it by reaching out to the BIG.

One take has Oregon and Washington following them.

Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, and Utah would make nice additions to the Big XII (XVI).

My brain can't take this.
The age of the MegaConference is here. Within five years, the SEC and the Big 10 will formalize some sort of league structure, and that will be that. Maybe it will get as big as 40 "schools" and then fuck everyone else. The money is there, the clout is there, the will is there.

Don't look now, but Notre Dame is waiting on their board to approve a move to the Big Ten, also. ND is tied to the ACC in all the other sports, but football. This is seismic.

When I saw the news on this , that was my exact thought , it's going to be some sort of sec thing and big 10 , I am in the minority here being an Ohio State fan...

But , even I don't want to see the conferences get distilled down to just 2 or 3 of them...

A somewhat credible source in the K-State sphere is indicating that Arizona and Arizona State have reached out to the Big XII regarding their joining the conference.

Works for me!
