I noticed yesterday USC fans were simply not buying a story pushed by the athletic dept. that Dave Aranda was on the verge of leaving LSU for USC before he got the Baylor job.
This type of story would normally be a credibility boost for athletic director Mike Bohn and that was obviously an intent of the leak. How do I know the leak was from the athletic dept.? Because that’s how I initially heard about it.
What Heritage Hall officials don’t realize is the fans have seen so much incompetence since Dec. 4 (when Bohn announced Clay Helton would return; said there were four silent commits; said recruiting was going great), they aren’t going to swallow the Aranda story.
It was a nice try, though, because it was meant to show fans that Bohn means business. Firing Helton means business. Leaking a story that a coveted defensive coordinator considered USC does not.
