UCLA quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson, like many reacting to Thursday's major college sports news, immediately jumped into the hypothetical as USC and UCLA project as the newest members of the Big Ten. "Man, I wish it was this year," Thompson-Robinson said. All parties confirmed initial reports by day's end as it appears college football has once again driven realignment. From the notion of super conferences to simply an adjustment in expectation, not to mention the shock of it all, reactions appeared mixed in Los Angeles as jokes of the iconic locale now serving as a part of "Big Ten Country." For Thompson-Robinson, entering his fifth and final year of college football this fall, the spark of the news cycle has him excited for the next wave of Bruins looking to make their mark. The son of a Michigan graduate who was considering UM out of high school before inking with UCLA, he didn't take long to see the appeal.

"I was telling my dad, there were more fans in that stadium than there were any USC home game I played my freshman and sophomore year. And that was a spring game," Lewis said.
