California and Oregon made news today that could whether USC has fans at games in the fall.
Calif. Gov. Gavin Newson said, “It’s difficult for me to imagine a stadium that’s filled until we have immunity, until we have a vaccine.”
What would no crowd cost USC? $25-30 million?
Meanwhile, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown has asked that large gatherings scheduled through September be canceled or modified. That puts a dent in Oregon games at Autzen Stadium. The Ducks host Ohio State in September.
- When Carol Folt took a 20 percent pay cut on April 3, USC announced “The President will be taking a 20 percent reduction, while the Provost, Senior Vice Presidents, and Deans will give 10 percent.”
Was Mike Bohn considered a dean? If so, that means he didn’t have a choice when USC leaked last week that Bohn, Clay Helton and Andy Enfield were giving back $1 million.
Bohn might not be considered a dean but he is part of the “team.”
