With so much feedback Friday about the imposter story, I had to call by campus security for some more details.
Here is how the incident was recorded in the security log.
So the imposter apparently showed up at the McKay Center and found his way inside to the locker room. He then grabbed a helmet, jersey and cleats. At this point, give him credit for getting ahold of these items. No pads were worn Thursday so he didn’t need to worry about those.
He then walked over to Howard Jones Field, right past the event/staff security guards, who wouldn’t stop someone in a football uniform.
The imposter then started catching punts when a football staffer finally noticed him and wondered who he was. Campus security was called and asked to come over and detain him. The imposter was almost left but two staffers restrained him. He was then taken to the locker room area underneath the McKay Center and Heritage Hall.
“I’m not sure how he got into the McKay Center so easily,” the secruity source said. “That’s the question and the problem for me. He also shouldn’t even be on campus with the COVID-19 restrictions. We had a previous issue with him at the soccer field so we knew who he was but he had never done something like this before.”
You can bet security for today’s practice will be overblown in response.
- I’m sure you know Arizona and Stanford will play for the NCAA women’s basketball championship. Six different Pac-12 teams have reached the Final Four since 2013.
Of course, USC is not one of those six teams and light years away from a Final Four. Coach Bohn seems happy for the program to drift, perhaps because he was more of a men’s team fanboy delivering post-game speeches about NCAA seedings. But Bohn was all smiles at last year’s on-campus screening of the HBO documentary on USC’s women’s basketball’s championship era.
