Everything USC does has a common thread: Money.
It will pay UC Davis only $725,000 to play at the Coliseum in 2021 per The Athletic. USC paid Western Michigan $1.2 million in 2017 for a nonconference game at the Coliseum.
Now that’s a good reason for the skin flints in the athletic dept. to bury tradition.
Insiders believe money was the reason successful men’s tennis coach Peter Smith and John Robinson “resigned” their positions.
And yet . . . Lynn Swann makes $3-4 million a year.
- Do you remember a couple years ago how recruiting analysts raved about JT Daniels’ scrambling ability?
“He went from like a C-minus to an A. I haven’t seen anything like it,” said Greg Biggins of 247Sports.
Maybe this year USC fans will see that from Daniels.
- And finally . . . from Mike Leach.
Do ANY West Coast fans actually think that it is a good idea to have 9am games?— Mike Leach (@Coach_Leach) July 27, 2019
