UCLA, USC To Big Ten? Now What For Pac-12, SEC, Notre Dame, College Football?

USC and UCLA to the Big Ten?

And you thought the Big Ten was just going to let the SEC have all the fun.

Pac-12 insider of insiders Jon Wilner shook up the world with his tweet that the Big Ten was going to expand with USC and UCLA – or, at least, it was close to making this happen.

That’s it. That’s the move. That’s EXACTLY what the biggest, richest, and most powerful conference in sports had to do to push back against the SEC’s landing of Oklahoma and Texas – and I still won’t believe Texas is actually doing this and not going to the Big Ten, or staying put, until I actually see it.

And now everyone will go crazy wondering what happens next. What’s next for the Big Ten, and the SEC, and the Big 12, and Notre Dame, and the Pac-12, and for college football?

Big Ten. Now what does it do?

You mean besides warm up the cash printing machine?

1) It adds two powerhouse academic institutions. UCLA instantly becomes the second-best school in the Big Ten behind Northwestern, and USC is right there with Michigan.

2) They were the two biggest schools that made sense considering Notre Dame still isn’t a real possibility and the ACC is all but off the table with its awful Grant of Rights deal locking in the member institutions.

3) You want to play, SEC? Yeah, having Houston and Atlanta and parts of Florida is good, but Los Angeles, Chicago, New York – or whatever New York is in the college football landscape – most of Pennsylvania, Detroit, all of Ohio, Minneapolis, and Milwaukee.

4) Coast-to-coast. The Big Ten now is a truly national conference from sea to shining sea. The SEC is regionalized to one section of the country. However, the Big Ten – for all its big things and exposure – isn’t going to make so much as a dent in the SEC markets.

5) North Carolina. It makes too much sense. For all of the talk about the SEC taking over with world domination, get North Carolina and USC and UCLA, and … Notre Dame?

[lawrence-related id=548101]

Pac-12. Now what does it do?

Commissioner George Kliavkoff came in talking about expansion, and being forward-thinking, and seemingly being ready to expand the brand, but now has has to piece together the markets to make up for losing these two monster schools.

There are a few moves the conference can make right away to help ease the pain a little bit.

1) First, forgive for overusing this bit, but it works – you can’t replace Giambi and Damon, but you can Moneyball your way up to being okay.

The Big 12 did it by getting four big schools with big fan bases and enrollment and markets – BYU, Houston, UCF, and Cincinnati – to help make up for it.

The Pac-12 needs schools, markets, and fan bases. Don’t get caught up in the sports aspect of expansion – that comes and goes; it’s about the business side of things.

Kansas just won the basketball national championship. The football side might be struggling – to be nice about it – but it’s got Kansas City and St. Louis along with a national base for hoops. It’s also a Tier 1 research school, and it works well with Colorado relatively nearby.

Kliavkoff has from the start all but said Las Vegas is going to be a part of the mix, so forgetting how bad the football team has been getting UNLV is like the Big Ten bringing in Rutgers.

San Diego State makes too much sense – big market without the NFL, new stadium, repositioning school that works with Arizona and Arizona State. The one problem is the Tier 1 research side – it’s not there, but neither was Nebraska when the Big Ten took it on.

It’s not replacing USC or UCLA, but Kansas, San Diego State, UNLV, and let’s throw in the idea of …

Notre Dame. Now what does it do?

You think Notre Dame will want to be left out of the party?

The Big Ten now starts to make a lot more sense. There’s already the rivalry tie-in with USC, there’s the national feel to the conference – at least more than the ACC or SEC – now in the strange dance these two have done over the years, the Big Ten is now in the much, much stronger position.

Or the Pac-12 makes a pitch.

Keep the game with USC every year, but join the conference with Stanford, and Cal, and keep the academic profile up all while being in a manageable league with big markets and not a ton of killers on the slate.

[lawrence-related id=547408]

SEC. Now what does it do?

Lock down Texas and Oklahoma and don’t let them go.

It’s already a done deal, but pay whatever is needed to get those two in the conference now, because Texas always made more sense for the Big Ten, and that’s even more so now. Oklahoma always made more sense for the Pac-12, and that’s even more so now.

But that’s not happening – Texas and Oklahoma will go to the SEC.

No, going after Clemson, Florida State, and Miami doesn’t make the sense you might think it would. It doesn’t expand the footprint or the markets. The Big Ten is now coast-to-coast – the SEC needs to get out of the lower right side of the country.

Notre Dame and North Carolina are the dreams, but if the Big Ten can go from one side of the nation to the other, why not Washington? Why not Oregon?

No, assume the SEC sticks with what it has – remember, ACC teams are all but locked into its media deals.

Big 12. Now what does it do?

Go, go … GO.

Go pitch Arizona and Arizona State.

Go pitch Colorado to come back. Go see what you can get out of the Pac-12 and get harder, better, faster, stronger.

More realistically, lock down your programs. Make sure the Pac-12 doesn’t come sniffing around Kansas, and Iowa State, and Oklahoma State. Or go after San Diego State, Boise State, UNLV, and Colorado State – grab the Mountain West teams before the Pac-12 wakes up and does it.

[lawrence-related id=548077]

College football. Now what does it do?

No, it’s not the end of college football as you know it. It’s going to be fine, it’s going to be fun, and it’s not really going to change your love of the game like you might think it will.

The biggest thing out of all of this will be a College Football Playoff expansion.

Now it’s a must considering the SEC and Big Ten are way too big, way too powerful, and there needs to be a locked in way for a 12-team tournament to include all the Power Five conference champs and a Group of Five champ, all while assuring the two big conferences that they’ll each get their three or so stars in every year.

All that, and road trips to LA for the Big Ten fans.

Iowa Hawkeyes Preview 2022

Yeah, Iowa got stomped by Michigan in the Big Ten Championship, but …

Iowa got to the Big Ten Championship.

Yeah, Iowa lost a bowl game for the first time since 2016, but …

Iowa got to the Vrbo Citrus Bowl.

Yeah, the end of the season might have soured things a bit to come so far only to struggle late, but …

Iowa won ten games, and got to the Big Ten Championship, and went to the Vrbo Citrus Bowl even though it wasn’t very good in a few massive areas – like scoring in the red zone, and scoring consistently, and throwing the ball down the field, and …

Oh, the defense was terrific. It was great against the run, better at taking the ball away – it led the nation with 25 interceptions – and gave up 19 points per game.

But the other side of the ball had a few issues.

Here’s the fun part. The defense might be every big as good with the pieces coming back, which means if the Hawkeyes can get any improvement on …

Iowa Hawkeyes Preview 2022: Offense

It was a grind. Iowa finished 13th in the Big Ten in total offense – averaging 304 yards per game – and it wasn’t because it took it easy and didn’t take chances so the defense could carry the load.

The passing game has been just okay for a while, and it’s been a huge struggle over the last few years to generate enough big things down the field. That has to be adjusted, and the running game has to be better, and …

Seriously, Iowa? The offensive line was a problem? That’s the most amazing part about the 2021 run to the Big Ten Championship – Iowa was able to do that even though the program’s signature position group was way too ineffective for way too long.

Oh sure, Tyler Linderbaum was a special center, and there was all-star consideration at some other spots, but the line was dead last in the Big Ten in tackles for loss allowed, struggled in pass protection, and blocked for the 101st-ranked running game in the country.

The interior needs a reboot with all the lost parts, but Mason Richmond is a good young tackle, there’s experience at right tackle, and it’s Iowa. This is going to be fixed.

Even with all of the problems, Tyler Goodson still ran for 1,151 yards and six scores. He’s done, but Gavin Williams got his feet wet with 305 yards.

And then there’s the passing game. Yeah, blame the line a wee bit for the problems with the lack of a downfield attack, but the Hawkeyes simply couldn’t bomb away like it needed to.

The good news – leading receiver Sam LaPorta is back after catching 53 passes. The bad news – the leading receiver was a midrange receiving tight end. However, Keagan Johnson averaged 19.6 yards per catch and Nico Ragaini is a good veteran. And then there’s the worse news – star return man and solid receiver Charlie Jones is in the transfer portal.

The quarterback job is way too up for grabs considering the veterans in the mix. Spencer Petras has the tools and the inside track, but he hasn’t been set the world on fire. Alex Padilla is giving him a push, but he failed to hit half of his passes last year. It’s an open competition – redshirt freshman Joe Lebas will get a shot – through fall camp.

And then there’s the …

Iowa Hawkeyes Preview 2022: Defense

It wasn’t always perfect, and it got hammered by Michigan and Purdue, but it finished ninth in the nation in yards allowed, gave up just 20 points per game, and it came up with lots and lots of turnovers.

The takeaways slowed in the middle of the season, but they also showed just how important the defense was for a team that struggled so much offensively. The 20 turnovers in the first six games set the tone for the rest of the season, and they picked back up late.

The 2021 D might not come up with 25 interceptions again, but overall it’ll be every bit as strong.

The secondary welcomes back ball-hawking star corner Riley Moss after he missed time hurt last season with a knee injury. He’s one of the best playmakers in the country, but there are just enough replacements for the other star defensive backs to need a little bit to be as good as last year. It’s an experienced group, though, that will be more than fine.

Now they need the pass rush to be there, and it will. Ends Lukas Van Ness and Joe Evans combined for 14 sacks, and even with the loss of Zach VanValkenburg – who led the team with 14 tackles for loss – the line will hold up.

If the linebackers aren’t the best in the Big Ten, they’re close. Jack Campbell is a tackling machine who’ll be an All-Big Ten star again, and Seth Benson – 105 tackles to Campbell’s 143 – will start to get more attention as one of the league’s best all-around defenders.

So where’s the curveball going to come from this year in the Big Ten?

Last year it was Michigan getting over the hump – at least, it did after losing to a surprising Michigan State team – the year before it was Indiana rising up and Northwestern getting to the Big Ten Championship for the second time in three years, and this year it’s …

Nebraska? Maybe. Maryland? To a point, potentially, or …

Maybe it’s back to Ohio State and 13 other teams.

There’s a whole lot of fun to be had with all 14 teams looking either improved or good enough to make a reasonable push for a strong season. Of course, that’s not how this all works, but it’s Spring. It’s a time for hope.

With the history of the Big Ten there are loads and loads of Hall of Famers and all-time great NFL draft picks to choose from. So who are the best of all-time coming from the conference?

This isn’t a list of the top pro players to come from the Big Ten schools – these are the best draft picks.

The guys who had great careers for someone other than teams that drafted them get knocked down a peg, or aren’t on the list at all. For example, Purdue’s Drew Brees was obviously an all-time NFL great, but for New Orleans, not the Chargers.

The goal for any draft pick is to get a player who performs at a high level for a long period of time, so longevity matters over one short burst of greatness.

22 College Football Thoughts For 2022

Contact/Follow @ColFootballNews & @PeteFiutak
2022 College Football Schedules: All 131 Teams

22 College Football Thoughts For 2022
22, College football is changing, and it’s okay
21, Texas & Oklahoma, you really want the SEC?
20. SEC is really, really good if you like it or not
19. James Madison, welcome to the show
18. Sun Belt is the cool conference
17. Transfer Portal will only get bigger
16. NFL, keep your hands off our announcers
15. Big 12: Get bigger and stronger, or else

14. Big Ten expansion: NOW what does it do?

Conference expansion and realignment have been a part of college football ever since college alliances began, but business-wise, it all went up a few notches in the early 1990s.

The Southwest Conference and Big 8 created the Big 12, Florida State joined the ACC – setting the tone for a wave of additions from the Big East – and Penn State went to the most forward-thinking conference of the bunch, the Big Ten.

Even when the Big Ten wasn’t bringing aboard schools, it was getting everyone talking.

When it has expansion and big business ideas, the B1G usually tells you what it’s going to do – or, at the very least, hints at it – and why? Because it can.

However, after Texas and Oklahoma made the move to the SEC, the Big Ten has been strangely quiet when it comes to conference expansion. As in, like, dead silent.

Under former Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany, the conference had a way of subtly letting out the expansion trial balloons to see which way the wind was blowing. So far under new commissioner Kevin Warren, there’s apparently no interest in adding more schools, everything is fine as is, and …

There aren’t a whole lot of options. That’s the problem. And there’s a bigger existential concern that Big Ten people don’t like to talk about at parties …

Ohio State.

All of a sudden, the SEC is positioning itself to take over the Big Ten as the most dominant revenue producing conference, but it needs more. It needs to make people outside of the southeast part of the country care about the product when it’s not the Alabama vs. Big Other SEC Team of the Moment showdown.

The SEC getting Oklahoma was one thing, but landing Texas changed the game.

First, it’s Texas. Blow off the problems on the football field; that’s the big boy at the table when it comes to revenue producing athletic departments.

Second, it’s Texas. It’s going to step in and be the second-best academic institution in the SEC behind Vanderbilt, or arguably 2B along with Florida.

Third, it’s Texas. Having Texas A&M is great, but you get the University of Texas, you get all the big markets across the entire state including a lockdown of the Dallas/Fort Worth area – the fifth largest media market in the country.

The SEC now owns Dallas, it owns Atlanta (7th largest media market according to the Nielsen Ratings), and it pretty much has Houston (8th), Tampa/St. Petersburg (13th), and Orlando (17th). That’s not quite like having Chicago (3rd), Philadelphia (4th), Washington DC (9th), Minneapolis (14th), Detroit (15th), Cleveland (19th) and whatever parts of New York that cares about college football, but it’s huge.

And the Big Ten totally blew it.


Big Ten 2022 Schedule Analysis: 3 things to know
Illinois | Indiana | Iowa | Maryland | Michigan
Michigan State | 
Minnesota | Nebraska | Ohio State
Penn State | PurdueRutgers | Wisconsin


It was one of those spitballed ideas several years ago when the Big Ten was looking to expand. Texas was – and still is – the PERFECT fit for the Big Ten in every possible way. As I said in an earlier rant, Texas people aren’t doing their jobs – in terms of potential football success, revenue, and academic profile – if it doesn’t do a double-take on this SEC move.

But that’s not going to happen, Texas is going to the SEC, and that opens the gate for every big-time athletic school that would trade it all for a little bit more.

It’s doubtful the SEC could ever get Michigan – horrible academic branding downgrade – but Ohio State? It’s been more than just hinted that the SEC would love to get THE school in Ohio and all but end any possible balance of college football power.

Of course there’s the sports side, but to get all of the Ohio markets – and create a much, much bigger overall media deal – would be a devastating blow to the Big Ten.

No, I don’t think Ohio State is ever leaving the Big Ten, but it sure as shoot has a whole lot of negotiating power with a whole lot of muscle.

So now the Big Ten has to do something splashy to not only keep up with the SEC, but to make the current members richer and happier. 

But how?

There are two expansion issues for the conference. Expansion only makes sense if it raises the revenue for everyone. There’s no reason to keep adding schools just to add schools if it splits up the pie a few more slices. The other issue is the lack of options.

Part arrogance, part negotiating stalemates, part not wanting to add big-time football schools to make life a wee bit harder for the powerhouses – notice there was no griping whatsoever from the football coaches after adding Rutgers and Maryland – the Big Ten didn’t get Texas. It never really came all that close to figuring it out with Notre Dame – that was on both sides. It completely whiffed by not jumping on Missouri and Colorado to expand west, and it didn’t really go hard enough on the top ACC schools when it had the chance. 

That last one is the killer. 

The Big Ten would LOVE to have North Carolina – it fits in the exact same way Texas would have. It would have probably pushed for Georgia Tech for the Atlanta market – just like it wanted Rutgers for New York/New Jersey and Maryland for Baltimore/Washington DC – Boston College and Syracuse would’ve been interesting ideas, and Virginia would be a no-brainer.

But the ACC has its schools locked up until 2035 in a rough media deal – that’s sort of why you haven’t heard much about the SEC putting a fence around the southeast part of the country by taking over Clemson, Florida State, and Miami.

Everything has its price, and there’s always a way, but the ACC is all but out. Notre Dame continues to be a non-starter, and the Big Ten and Pac-12 don’t seem to want to mess with each other in any sort of expansion rumors – even though USC, UCLA, Arizona State, Arizona, and Washington are all probably more in the Big Ten’s thought bubble than many might want to believe.

So now what?

There are only a few schools that make sense for what the Big Ten is looking for. They have to be Tier 1 research universities with a good media reach and the ability expand the overall footprint – don’t worry too much about geography and travel; it’s 1,300 miles from Piscataway to Lincoln.

And it has to have the main schools the respective states – like THE University of Nebraska, and THE University of Maryland, and THE State University of New Jersey.

The easy starting point would be Kansas – great basketball, Tier 1 research, Kansas City and St. Louis markets, easy geographic rival for the Big Ten West – but that’s not exactly matching the SEC getting Oklahoma and Texas.

All of the other Big 12 schools other than TCU have the Tier 1 academic profile, but … nah. West Virginia doesn’t really fit, and the Big Ten isn’t going after Iowa State when it has Iowa, or Kansas State when it can probably get Kansas.

So that leaves the Pac-12. The Big Ten doesn’t want to ruffle that relationship, but business is business, and Colorado would slide right in and be at home in the Big Ten. The Pac-12 would get all mad, and then it would finally do what it should’ve done years ago and snatch Colorado State, San Diego State, and UNLV from the Mountain West.

Colorado and Kansas? Really? That would be the Big Ten’s smartest and best answer to the SEC getting Texas and Oklahoma? 

Yeah – because it works. 

Remember, this is business – don’t get caught up in level of play on the football field. 

Colorado would be about adding Denver – the 16th biggest media market in the country – and Kansas, again, gets you Kansas City (34th) and helps with St. Louis (23rd) to go along with the national basketball base that would park it on the Big Ten Network during the season.

Or nothing could happen, the Big Ten will keep printing money, and it’ll spend its time working on keeping the member institutions from thinking about entering the conference transfer portal.

But it’s the Big Ten. It might be quiet, but ohhhhhhhh, no. It’s not going to sit this one out.

You really think the Big Ten is going to let the SEC take over the world?
