UCLA's decision to leave the Pac-12 for the Big Ten was apparently not one of greed, but of necessity.

According to a report in the LA Times, the Bruins were in such financial disaster that they were on the verge of cutting some of the school's Olympic sporting events.

However, the financials of the Big Ten are saving the day. UCLA will no longer be forced to make any deductions as it joins the convention in 2024.

Ben Bolch of the Los Angeles Times said, "Breaking: debt-laden UCLA was on a serious trajectory to cut the game until it moved to the Big Ten."

Leaving the Pac-12 to save most of your school's sports teams? Sounds like the right decision to us.

“Followers of this account have seen me drone on about how dangerously financially UCLA was expanding.

The university provides almost zero aid to athletics, whether in admissions or dollars.

For a school w/119 national title, 12 in FB/BB, it was a requirement," said 5th Down College Football.

In other words, UCLA is essentially pulling Maryland.

"So they pulled a Maryland one," said Bud Elliot.
