It’s now a week since Mike Bohn kept Clay Helton and I don’t notice much difference in the anger level of the fans.
Bohn hasn’t written a tweet since the announcement. He knows better. Bohn hasn’t even done one of his man-on-the-street tweets where he takes a picture with a university employee.
He is beleaguered and angry. I hear before the Helton announcement, Bohn decided to hire a Cincinnati administrator to become a deputy athletic director at USC. They are supposed to arrive next week.
That will be a needed reinforcement at this point. He needs some support after badly misjudging the USC community. Bohn is Public Enemy No. 1.
Helton must be thrilled that USC fans have someone else to direct their anger at instead of him.
Bohn thought he could pacify angry fans by distracting them with a “Look at Kedon Slovis” or “Look at the silent commitments!” throwaway lines. No such luck.
- Anyone who knows Michael Pittman did not doubt he would play in the Holiday Bowl. Pittman’s always done whatever he can to help the team and he wasn’t going to miss his final college game.
