The Pac-12 (and Faculty Soccer) is Falling Aside

It’s been one week since USC and UCLA announced they would be joining the Big Ten in 2024, and the dust has yet to settle on the potential ramifications their departures will have.

Now, the Pac-12 scrambles to save itself amid rumors of Oregon possibly joining the Big Ten and a merger with the Big 12 also being discussed.

Schools such as Arizona State and Utah should be fine in whatever avenue is taken, while programs such as Oregon State and Cal could face different fates.

The reality is the Pac-12 has been on a downward trend for years. Many will pin the blame on former commissioner Larry Scott and his inability to make the conference relevant along with their fellow four major leagues.
