Another quick story regarding Brian Kennedy, the booster in the news who called the USC football program “dogshit” on Saturday night.
There used to be a scoreboard at Howard Jones Field that Kennedy donated and bore his name. But when Pat Haden — who had a falling out with Kennedy — was athletic director the scoreboard was mysteriously torn down and replaced with a smaller, inferior version that did not bear Kennedy’s name.
It’s probably the first time USC’s ever gone smaller on something.
The rank-and-file athletic dept. employees did not have a problem with Kennedy. This was a several-year war waged by Haden and Lynn Swann that never made sense.
- Former USC defensive back Cary Harris has replaced Chris Claiborne as Calabasas High School football coach. Harris was at Glendale this past season.
- The Houston Astros were stripped of four draft picks today by MLB. The previous record was three when the Angels were punished for tampering with former USC pitcher Bill Bordley.
