A lawsuit from a former USC football analyst is not the ideal news on the first day for a new school president.
But how will Carol Folt feel if USC gets hit with a notice of allegations from the NCAA regarding possible basketball violations? That won’t be a good look for Lynn Swann either.
I’ve heard Rick Carr, the fired security director, is fighting to keep his job. Is that going to turn into another embarrassment?
There are so many things to keep track of at USC. Drama comes at any moment like when Swann banned the song girls from the Galen Center.
There is a lot of speculation inside Heritage Hall about Swann’s future. Even the No. 2, Steve Lopes, is getting criticized.
And Clay Helton doesn’t exactly inspire confidence to deal with any of it either. He didn’t even put a statement out denying yesterday’s allegations from the former football analyst.
Maybe that is smart from a legal standpoint but it makes Helton seem like a bumbler, as usual.
