Week 2 for new USC president Carol Folt is not exactly going quietly.
Folt is still getting emails and phone calls from USC fans regarding athletic director Lynn Swann.
And now a well-heeled group is asking for an apology. The Board of Leaders for the USC Marshall School of Business have asked Folt to apologize to former business school dean Jim Ellis over allegations he mishandled race and gender bias complaints.
The Board of Leaders includes people like Marc Benioff of Salesforce.com and Paul Orfalea , the founder of Kinkos. It also includes Ed Roski, who is on the Board of Trustees.
In January, the Board of Leaders asked for the immediate resignation of Rick Caruso, who is the chair of USC’s Board of Trustees.
- The stat from Chris Fallica yesterday that USC is 1-12 outright and 2-11 ATS as an undedog is a good comeback for people who have to hear, “Clay Helton has won a Rose Bowl and Pac-12 title at USC.”
Another good response is “the avergage margin of defeat in USC’s past 12 losses as an underdog is 18.8 points.”
