Quite a bit going on despite the lockdown.
- I’ve heard around half of the USC football had been tested for the coronavirus by Monday. No word yet on when/if USC will announce results.
- Former Florida point guard Andrew Nembhard has announced he will transfer to Gonzaga. USC was a finalist.
- I’ve heard from a lot of alumni the past 24 hours who are upset about the decision to dissolve 45 alumni clubs as part of a restructuring that puts the university in control. This affects alumni clubs everywhere including Los Angeles and Orange County.
“They’re freezing all the club bank accounts and making everyone get their approval before hosting an event,” one alumni club official wrote me. “They’re also making each individual club discontinue use of their email list (most effective way of marketing by the way) that they’ve painstakingly built over the years and limiting marketing to ONLY Facebook groups which is ABSURD because many, many alums, ESPECIALLY younger ones, use Facebook sparingly if at all now.”
