Another person who attended the Carol Folt event on Tuesday night in Santa Monica said that when alumni were allowed to ask questions, there was not a single question about football or sports.
“She got off easy In the Q & A,” the person said.
Can you imagine if an SEC school did a meet-and-greet featuring the president and had an underachiever as football coach? Do you think there would be football questions? There might be torches and pitch forks.
But at the USC event . . . crickets.
Folt is supposed to do another event tonight in Orange County but athletic director Mike Bohn will probably skip the event to be in his hometown of Boulder for the USC-Colorado game.
Before leaving town, Bohn did say he was canceling the UC Davis game in 2021, which will please everyone.
Folt announced this morning two new financial aid policies:
- Families with an annual income of $80,000 or less will attend USC tuition-free.
- Owning a home will not be counted in the calculation used to determine a student’s financial need.
