USC fans are getting some criticism for not being supportive.
“It is a little frustrating because you see your fans are saying so many negative things about you,” said wide receiver Michael Pittman Tuesday. “It’s just like, ‘Wow, I thought you guys were our fans and supporting us.’ They’re not doing a lot of supporting right now.”
This confuses the issue. USC fans support the players. They do not support Clay Helton. Or Mike Bohn. Or Carol Folt. Until they earn support.
USC fans do not support incompetence. They do not support a poorly run football program. Or atrocious recruiting efforts.
They do support the players.
It’s not hard to figure out the difference.
