Poverty-stricken UCLA wants to split flights with USC when schools join big ten
UCLA surveyed more than 600 of its student-athletes about the Bruins’ move to the Big Ten and any concerns they might have when it comes time for UCLA to move to the new conference. The school submitted the document, which also included school suggestions for potentially alleviating some concerns, to the UC Board of Regents.
One of the obvious concerns for student-athletes — like anyone with common sense when this decision was announced — was travel, with UCLA now playing against schools in Pennsylvania and New Jersey in matches often on weeknights. for many sports. But don’t worry, UCLA has the solution: it will share flights with USC.
Look, if those poor west coast hippies want to jump on planes with the school across town, go ahead. That wouldn’t even break the top 1,000 things the California government has done that don’t make sense. But if you’re going to do that, I don’t want to hear another word about USC-UCLA being a real rivalry. As soon as your basketball teams watch movies and play cards on the plane like they’re going to an AAU tournament, you’ve admitted that you don’t take intercollegiate athletics seriously.
But I guess when you have 10,000 people showing up to watch your football games, even when you’re vying for a spot in the college football playoffs in November, you need to pinch pennies wherever you can.
UCLA is not a serious athletic department and its games against USC are not real rivalries. You’re all enjoying your co-college charters, which I imagine will have cookies with both schools’ logos and “FRIENDSHIP” written in frosting ready for each player when they board.
