On Thursday Jon Wilner of Mercury News reported that USC and UCLA are planning on joining the Big Ten as soon as 2024. This news sent massive shockwaves throughout the college football landscape as well as college athletics overall.
Now Oregon fans find themselves asking, what does this mean for the Ducks? Do they try to join the Big Ten? Does the Big Ten even want them? Should they try to join a different conference? What about going independent? Max Torres and Graham Metzker take an early look at where this move leaves Oregon and the options that are on the table right now.
The Ducks look like a very attractive school for any conference given their obvious connection with Nike and their strong football history, albeit much of it is a lot more recent than many of the sport's blue bloods. Dan Lanning's first year as a head coach also feels like it's taken on a much more significance, as Oregon's path to the playoff would likely become harder if the Ducks were to join the Big Ten.
