Hiring Pat Haden and Lynn Swan as athletic directors, mostly due to their name than their experience, was the root of their issues.  At least now they have a professional in charge.

This would be a good reason why the networks are opening up talks with the B12 early. The PAC12 is too unstable to commit 100's of millions of dollars to. Substituting SDSU and UNLV for Oregon and Washington would be a game changer for the networks.

I feel bad for the PAC12. Yes, USC and UCLA screwed them , but it also sound like the last commish, Larry Scott, was an overpaid 'do nothing' leader and the schools are responsible for that.

The PAC 12 and the Big 12 (or whatever) need to merge.

The resulting conference could be a power center against the BIG and SEC, if Oregon, Washington, Colorado and maybe Arizona State pick it up a few notches.

With Uncle Phil's money and endorsements, this conference could be a strong competitor to the established order.

Oh, and the SEC needs to poach Miami, Fla State, UNC and Clemson. That would leave the ACC in shambles.

While I personally would find it funny and enjoyable for UCLA to get smacked back to the P12; asking Kliavkoff his opinion on the matter is like asking Trump how he thinks Biden is doing as president.

Finally, Kliavkoff said added travel runs contrary to the UC system's climate goals and works against UCLA's commitment to "climate neutrality" by 2025.

Is this an appeal to Biden and Newsom to step in with some kind of executive order?

Stupid, stupid, stupid!

You would think we were back in the day where everyone still traveled by train. Yeah, when it takes three days each way to get across the country (yes, folks, this is Amtrak), the Pac-12 argument makes sense.

But the reality is that UCLA can reach the core of the Big 10 (Nebraska to Ohio State) in about 4.5 to 5 hours non-stop on a charter. That's maybe an hour longer than going to Pullman, WA or Seattle.

Pac 10 -- the Big 12 is waiting.

But LA to Pullman is in the same time zone. LA to Columbus is not. That’s a factor for the kids traveling both ways. And you assume golf, softball, or volleyball will charter. They won’t.
