Here was a great line that might have been overlooked in yesterday’s statement from the United Black Student-Athletes Assn.
“USC must prioritize our lives and well-being over pandering to boosters and donors.”
I almost feel like I wrote that.
It’s quite a statement when athletes are even saying this and I doubt many boosters or donors saw this yesterday. The key word is “pandering.” It’s a necessary part of being at USC or any college to interact with boosters and donors.
But it can probably be unbearable when you feel like you must do it simply for money.
