USC president Carol Folt put out a long statement today about a variety of topics. Buried inside was this nugget: “With only four 2019 starters not returning, this young football team will be looking for support from the Trojan Family as they head into their first spring game on April 11.”
I always like when the university announces a spring game before the athletic dept.
She added the following on the College Admissions Scandal:
- The university has completed the majority of its investigations into potential admission violations in the scandal known as Varsity Blues. Each case was unique and handled with sensitivity and fairness. Only a few student reviews are still ongoing.
- Reforms have been implemented to strengthen our internal controls and deepen the vetting of our student-athlete admissions process.
- To safeguard our admissions process and make sure no aspect of our process can be abused, a task force comprising Provost Charles Zukoski, Athletic Director Mike Bohn, faculty, staff and students will audit, evaluate and oversee our protocols for admitting prospective student-athletes.
