With the news that Southern California and UCLA, two founding members of the Pac-12, are about to jump conferences to the Big Ten, the landscape of collegiate sports seems poised to go through another round of upheaval. 

Collegiate sports, primarily football, has already seen its landscape change dramatically over the past several years with the advent of the age of Name, Image and Likeness, where potential lucrative deals are often taking precedence over campus experience, playing time and other considerations in athletes' decision-making process on where to attend ... at least until another, better deal comes along at another institution due to the gutting of transfer rules that required a player to sit out of year absent extraordinary circumstances.
