Want a Sneak Peek of the Big Ten’s Future? Better Subscribe to the Pac-12 Network

Remember when geography meant something? Yeah, me neither.

Oregon, UCLA, USC, and Washington are gearing up for their spring games today. And guess where you’ll find them? Ironically, on the Pac-12 Network. Turns out, ditching conferences isn’t as easy as it looks.

Big Ten fans, you wanted a preview of your new favorite teams? Too bad. You’ll have to cough up the cash for the Pac-12 Network if you want to see what the future of the conference looks like (if it’s even available). Talk about an awkward transition period.
