Some USC boosters got together this morning and were talking about . . . the Super Bowl?
That was four days ago. Why not USC?
“A lot of us don’t really care at this point,” a booster told me. “We’re tired of waiting for a coaching change.”
This is the hurdle for USC once things get back to a more normal state. If crowds are allowed in 2021, how much will USC get with its currently apathetic fan base?
“You’ve got some people in the (football) program saying everything is great but we know the fans aren’t happy right now,” a USC official told me this week. “We talk a lot about change but we haven’t done anything to prove it.”
The Coliseum might look scary in the fall if USC cannot hide behind the pandemic when it comes to fans in the stands.
