I wrote on Friday the announced attendance for the USC-Cal game would be around 57,000 and I was pretty close as USC announced a crowd of 56,721. Not bad.
Of course, the crowd was much smaller. Now the question is how long Lynn Swann is willing to tolerate small crowds. He might be a figurehead but he wants to make money. He doesn’t want to go to a new school president with decreasing revenues.
By the way, the USC drew more than 70,000 at the past two homecomings.
