Hey, look, we might think Lynn Swann is the worst athletic director in USC history but do we have proof?
When I said yesterday that USC is on the verge of losing records in football, basketball and baseball, a reader told me it had never happened before. So let’s check:
The first year USC started playing football, basketball and baseball in the same season was 1907.
So has USC ever had losing records in football, basketball and baseball in the same season between 1907-2019?
The answer is yes. In 1915, all three teams had losing records. But here is the good part. That is only time in the past 112 years that it happened.
Think about that for a minute. In 112 years, USC has had its Big 3 sports teams all register losing records in a single season only once.
Now Andy Enfield can still prevent it from happening this year by either winning two games at the Pac-12 Tournament or getting to the NIT and winning some games. The basketball team is currently 15-16.
Baseball seems pretty hopeless at the moment and the schedule is only going to get tougher. USC baseball (5-9) hasn’t even played a true road game yet and started off with 13 home games.
But if it happens, we have statistical proof to say Lynn Swann is the worst AD in USC history.
At the very least, Swann should be completely embarrassed by this possibility. He shows so little humility, however, he probably doesn’t care because he gets to go to the Masters next month.
