PAC-12 Commissioner Makes Delusional Comments About USC And UCLA

PAC-12 commissioner George Kliavkoff is seriously putting Baghdad Bob to shame at this point.

Ever since USC and UCLA decided to join the Big Ten in 2024 and get insanely rich, Kliavkoff has been on a roll attempting to convince people the conference will survive. Not only does he want people to believe the PAC-12 is fine, but he’s also tried to tell people the two powerhouse programs will regret the decision.

When is the last time someone regretted getting wealthy? I digress.

Kliavkoff is doing his best to spin the situation, but it’s nonsense.

Now, he’s claiming he’s spoken to fans of the Trojans and Bruins, and they’re not happy with the move. In fact, he can’t find a single person who supports it.

“I think saying hundreds would be an exaggeration — dozens, more than a hundred, and I have yet to talk to anyone in the UCLA and USC community who’s in favor of the move. I will say that I probably hear from folks who are not in favor, not surprisingly,” Kliavkoff said at Pac-12 basketball media day Wednesday, according to ESPN.

I’ve been calling Kliavkoff Baghdad Bob for awhile at this point, and he’s only doing more and more to justify the moniker. For those of you too young to remember, Baghdad Bob was an Iraqi propaganda official who told the media Saddam’s forces were crushing the Americans as we were literally steamrolling through the country.

However, it appears Baghdad Bob was even less delusional than Kliavkoff, who appears to be doing his best jilted lover impression.

Who are these fans he’s talked to? Name them. Let the people know.

UCLA and USC are much better off in the Big Ten over the PAC-12.

The reality of the situation is shockingly simple. UCLA and USC are about to be swimming in cash. The Big Ten’s media deal pays north of a billion dollars a year. Are we really supposed to believe USC and UCLA fans want to stay in the PAC-12 for a fraction of the money?

The answer is no. The Big Ten is the country’s wealthiest conference, and the Trojans and Bruins will soon be members of the exclusive club.

Yeah, I’m sure fans must be furious. After all, who isn’t outraged by being handed the keys to a yacht. Makes perfect sense.

I can’t wait to see what the PAC-12 commissioner says next. Before long, he’ll drop a “You didn’t break up with me. I broke up with you” line. That’s definitely coming if he continues at this rate.

  1. If money is the goal then you are right. Ask Nebraska and Missouri fans if the money their schools receive helps them. They both have sucked except 1 year since they left and not one original big 10-12 school considerers either of them a B10 member. Schedule fillers is all they are. No excitement when Nebraska or Missouri comes to town except 90% chance for a easy win and cheaper tickets prices.

  2. So Utah plays Wazzu at 7:00 on Thursday night as part of this ill-fated “PAC-12 After Dark” nonsense. USC plays Arizona on college football’s version of a red-headed stepchild called the PAC-12 Network; UCLA does play Stanford on ESPN — at 7:30 Pacific time. Oregon does have a midday game against the mighty Cal Bears (yawn). So no one will watch any of the PAC-12’s top 4 teams and George Kliavkoff wonders why SC and UCLA are bolting. Well George here is 1 USC alum that can’t wait to exit this sorry conference for good.
