Someone at USC is either incompetent or has a devilish sense of irony.
Just watch the video below, where the narrator says “a visionary” during a shot of Clay Helton and “a genius” with a shot of Clancy Pendergast.
I don’t know whether to suggest a raise or firing the film maker. I do know this: Some people in the athletic dept. are laughing at this video because they brought it to my attention.
Helton a visionary? Pendergast a genius? What fresh hell is this?
I can’t wait for the video that shows Lynn Swann and calls him the father of invention.
