USC Morning Buzz: From Board Of Trustees To Mayor?

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.”

Good luck!

  • 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.

  1. Lynn Swann looks more like a fool every day, Mark Trakh was such a reach , it was like Swann was too lazy to conduct a proper national search. If Clay Helton gets fired at seasons end, Swann will have cost USC millions of dollars to buyout Helton’s contract because he gave him a 4 year extension. When will USC’s new President, Carol Fault realize that a buffoon is running her University’s athletic department?

  2. Oh you mean the supposed “predator doctor” who reportedly had Playboy magazines in a storage locker and clinical photos he probably is required to keep for a period of years by law? Or that his victims never knew they were harmed until the LA Times expose? The doctor reportedly lived a playboy lifestyle. Is that a crime? Where is the justice? Or does concocted social justice for women (reparations) advocated by the Me Too Movement together with a powerful law firm and the LA Times constitute “justice”? This is all about plundering the school’s endowment in the name of social justice.

    This is the same university that drummed Bubba Bolden out of college for what? Verbally responding to a group of women athletes who were provoking him? Was he given 3 warnings? Were the provocateurs warned?

    Get rid of the Title 9 kangaroo court and the layer of lawyers who enforce campus behavior that usurp the police. They have to justify their lucrative jobs and their social status with a powerful ideology of Me Too.

  3. “Lori Loughlin’s Daughter Olivia Jade Was Reportedly on the USC Board of Trustees Chairman’s (Rick Caruso) YACHT When the Scandal Broke”

    Translation: That clown Rick Caruso’s name is mud. Not to mention the fact that he didn’t have enough sense to convince the USC BOT to get rid of the idiots (Swann & Helton) running USC Trojan football into the ground. Caruso couldn’t see the looming financial disaster that Trojan football is about to become when record low attendance gets broadcast nationwide this coming CFB season because he didn’t have the balls to have Swann and Helton replaced.

    Caruso failed to notice the corruption going on right under his nose in USC’s incompetent Athletic Directors department that eventually led to a nationwide scandal.

    And Caruso wants to manage Los Angeles?

    That clown Caruso is delirious.

  4. Somewhere between Wayne and tebow’s posts lies the truth (but Wayne is closer). Anybody who doesn’t understand the degree to which lawyers are capable of “creating” victims in these multi plaintiff cases just isn’t paying attention or reading between the lines. Once a claim is made against any wealthy defendant these days, scores of other victims —with the help of lawyers, legal assistants and investigators—emerge from the woodwork, having recovered their own memories of similar abuse. Goofy juries, educated by HBO specials, eat it up. I’m not commenting on the facts of the Tyndall case specifically —because I don’t know enough about them —-but the phenomenon of the manufactured “group” lawsuit is a growing legal problem. Although cases don’t really get automatically stronger when the number of claims goes from 3 to 300 (each claim should be scrutinized on its own merits), soft minded jurors don’t see it that way —-making wealthy individuals and institutions easy pickings.

  5. I’m confused and I suspect I’m not alone ….

    Just who exactly is attorney John Manly? Why does his weird comments matter?

    Caruso would be a great fit for the mayor’s office compared to the current and past mayors LA has had – Hahn, Villaraigosa and Garcetti. Nothing is ever done to improve the lives of Angelinos save more ‘junk science ordinances, canonizing the bums and addicts and adding more and more taxes in other words typical ‘demoncrats’.

    What’s so wrong about being wealthy as Caruso – of being able to travel and do so with a beautiful yacht? He’s light years ahead compared to Garcetti and Hahn who both got ‘boosted’ because their daddies were politicoes and in Garcetti’s case his condescending smirk is ‘to the manor borne’.

    Caruso’s life will be hit as Trump’s has because, like Trump, he’s not beholden to anyone which means he’ll move to make real change instead of doing the bidding of the SEIU and LAFD in particular.

    1. Trump is beholden to the Russians. Trump’s constant ass kissing of Vladimir Putin is sickening. Trump believing Putin over his own U.S. Intel agencies when Putin said he (Russia) didn’t interfere in the 2016 General Election is ludicrous. For decades republicans railed against Russia and how they were hell bent on destroying the U.S., but since Trump has gone out of his way to praise Putin, the KGB murderous corrupt filth, all of a sudden republicans believe Russia and Putin have nothing but good intentions toward the U.S. and actually want to have friendly relations. Talk about naive.


      1. Yeah I’d say the same thing if the focus was finally going to be shined on ‘la bruja’ and her sale of 20% of USA uranium assets to a Russian conglomerate along with her paying $10 mil. for the ‘Steele Dossier’ which was the basis of Comey’s FISA request against Trump. Funny thing is that after it was proven false (yesterday’s NYT) why didn’t klintonska chevrolet demand her money be paid back. Oh that’s right it wouldn’t have mattered just as long as she won the white house and hey her election committee was the source of the payout.

        You clowns were so hoping Trump’s White House counsel Don McGhan would have fired Mueller just as Robert Bork did for Nixon firing Archibald Cox….but he didn’t did he? Ah gee now what? Let’s claim we’re still committed to ‘concern’ for the nation while we continue to ram our perv culture down the kids mouths everyday….go JFK!

        Let’s see of ‘barakska’ has his mitts in this cover-up too….

      2. The democrats are just as corrupt as the republicans, neither party worth a shit, neither party working for anyones best interest except their own.

        This elected government that we have now needs to be overthrown and the country needs to start over without corporate interest being able to buy off politicians.
