USC hasn't been consistently relevant in a while, I'm guessing this is because of the name power. I just hope the Big 12 can take advantage of the situation rather than waiting to see what falls out from it all.

USC got a new coach, Riley, from Oklahoma and he has been pulling in all kind of talent. I think he will turn it around.

PAC12 options?

Please Big12, don't merge with the PAC10. NO need to save those bottom teams.

I can see the PAC10 calling BYU to see if we want to join their league.

The Big 12 should invite the Arizona schools and maybe Colorado. It would build a much nicer western division.

The new coach at USC hasn't even done anything yet, but I guess if that floats the big 10's boat, whatever.

I don't know if a merger with the rest of the PAC 12 is the right answer, but I think something proactive anticipating the eventual super conference arrangement might be worth looking at because this is quickly moving to an arrangement where it's going to be the top 2 conferences and then everyone else. Then everyone else will be cannibalizing each other to vie for a seat at that table. I think a proactive move to create a stronger, larger conference might be the smart move here. I think the future Big 12 could include some of those PAC teams.

Same for UW. They made it look like we would not play them in the Covid year when it was not possible. Made me very mad.

I really hate these super conferences. But, I would laugh my head off if Utah gets left in the dust. Regional divisions are going to have to be a must. Cross country trips every week for these student-athletes is not going to be fun for them.
