Carol Folt and Mike Bohn haven’t exactly had a high profile since the Clay Helton announcement.
Last week, USC had a Christmas party for some employees at Dignity Sports Park in Carson and Folt did not attend. Bohn’s done some media but avoided any public settings.
One donor wondered today if USC will hold a recruiting dinner in February. What are the odds the Salute to Troy is brought back? It got canceled last summer because of poor ticket sales. It should be worse this summer.
But what does USC think of the fans right now? How will it win them back?
Is it going to raise ticket prices next season? Will it raise booster group fees? It can’t hold on to the ones it has and faces a natural attrition because many boosters are older.
I have spoken to two fans in the past week who said they would keep their season seats because they don’t want to lose their priority to get better seats.
Bohn talks about the importance of having dedicated fans and filling the Coliseum. But how does he do it by alienating them?
I don’t get many things at the moment.
