A former USC All-American called me today, outraged over the decision to schedule UC Davis.
“Lynn Swann doesn’t even want to learn how to be an athletic director,” said the player, who knows Swann. “He just wants to get paid.”
When Swann got hired, a USC official lectured me for criticizing the hire.
“This is the USC way. The real Trojans are happy,” the official said. “This is what they want. They like having a star player come back.”
If Swann is such a Trojan, why did he allow a long-standing tradition of never playing a Division I-AA or FCS team? A real Trojan would not have allowed that.
But Swann is a shell of a Trojan. A lifeless, tone-deaf elitist who collects million of dollars every year.
Someone needs to clean house.
