McLaughlin: The Complications of Pac-12 Realignment
Posted on August 4, 2022
USC and UCLA’s move to the Big 10 will undoubtedly yield each school more money in their athletic departments than they would have received had they decided to remain in the Pac-12 beyond 2024.
But when you look beyond the money, there are arguably more challenges to success for the Trojans and Bruins as they consider their athletic futures.
Other schools could have similar calculations to make if other conferences “lob grenades” at them in the coming months, but not every Pac-12 school gets included in those speculative conversations.
Today’s episode is a crossover episode, featuring me and the host of Locked On Big 12, Josh Neighbors.
We discuss the recent headlines and potential ties between the two conferences they cover, and how the next set of realignment moves could look in the coming years.
How much of the blame should George Kliavkoff, who’s been Pac-12 commissioner for about a year, be getting for the current state of the conference of champions?
