Sigma Chi brothers and players argue on The Big Switch from the Pac 12 to the Big Ten - let's just say it ain't pretty!
MIKE GARONE '01
Will be interesting to see how performance will be impacted by having to travel cross country every other week and play in weather conditions most of our team isn’t used to playing in.
MICHAEL KARAHALIOS '86
No respect for the history and the legacy of the pack 12 . We have had such a great time I am going to miss it
JIMMY HARMON '61
All about money. Nothing to do with student athletes or the fans. Throws out years of traditions. I will be less of a fan, thank you.

It's definitely interesting, that’s for sure.
It’s gonna be weird having to travel so far for half the season. Notre Dame is the farthest and its six hours if not longer. Some guys have never played in snow. There'll be a lot of obstacles. But as program goes, it's going to be a really good opportunity for USC as an institution to grow.
MATT MATTESON '81
This is a very wrong move. Opponents' schools will be too far away for students to go to away games. In the late 70’s, we went to the NorCal weekender, the Arizona weekender, and the Seattle weekender. ‘SC will now be just middle of the pack in the Big ? when it could have dominated the PAC-12 in many sports for years to come. TV revenue isn’t everything.

This is what happens when the president and the AD aren’t Trojans.

TROJAN TIGHT END
Although I will probably not be around for the move to the Big 10, I think it’s a great move for the program. Granted the traveling may be difficult, I think the pros of playing teams like Penn State, Ohio State, and Michigan greatly outweigh the cons. USC has set itself up to be serious contenders for the CFB playoff with this new strength of schedule.
