On Friday, the Pac-12 welcomed its newest member to the conference. They don’t quite fit the geography of the Great American West, nor do they fit with the Pac-12 rigorous academic reputation (excluding Arizona State), nor does this program contribute any champions to the Conference of Champions.
Welcome, University of Arkansas Little Rock.
Little Rock, unfortunately, is only associated with the Pac-12 in one sport, and that’s wrestling. They did not jump from the Sun Belt in any of their other sports, so bad news for Oregon State on still having to be the worst football team in the conference.
