Hey, let’s start off the day with something to make you smile. Or not.
The New York Times did a profile of Rick Caruso, the chairman of the USC Board of Trustees. Naturally, it spends quite a bit of time on whether he will run for mayor (he is interested).
“I’ll campaign for him,” actress Gwyneth Paltrow said. “I’ll make the T-shirts.”
That just about sums up USC in the Max Nikias age. It’s all about star power and wealth.
There’s a big difference between being elected mayor in Los Angeles and using your money, power and influence to head the USC Board of Trustees.
Here’s what attorney John Manly said via twitter: “The idea that USC Board Chair Rick Caruso can deny victims of USC predator doctor George Tyndall access to the courts, lobby against them in Sacramento & hide the truth about what SC knew & when they knew it about Tyndall & then be mayor is delusional & profoundly narcissistic.”
- Here is something I forgot to include in the women’s basketball item last night. Assistant coach Blanche Alverson has left to become an assistant coach at Georgia Tech. And USC coach Mark Trakh appears to have deleted his twitter account. I’m sure Lynn Swann is aware of all this.
