USC women’s volleyball is hosting the Trojan Invitational at the Galen Center starting today. One of the teams just happens to be Villanova.
It will be interesting to see if Villanova A.D. Mark Jackson, who would like the USC job, just happens to be at the tournament. Usually, an athletic director won’t fly 2,700 miles to accompany the women’s volleyball team to a tournament.
There is already some intense criticism from within the USC athletic dept. and some donors to Jackson’s candidacy. Many fans blame him because he pushed for the hiring of Steve Sarkisian.
