USC announced the public cannot attend any of the fall camp practices beginning August 3 at Howard Jones Field.
Why not? It blames an NCAA rule:
Color me skeptical about the rule. Schools always interpret rules differently.
For example, a few years ago USC closed the Coliseum locker room to the media after games because it said recruits were in there.
So that meant the USC locker room would be open on road games because recruits are never allowed inside the visiting team’s locker room. Nope. USC said it would also be closed.
USC simply wanted the locker rooms closed. No problem. Just give the real reason don’t hide behind an NCAA rule.
