I spoke to another long-time season-ticket holder Wednesday who told me that he was going to attend the LSU-UCLA game on Sept. 4 at the Rose Bowl instead of the USC-San Jose State game.
“I’d rather see LSU,” the booster told me. “USC will be there the following week and I’m not sure I’ll go that time either, but I’m sure I’m not going to the Coliseum on Sept. 4.”
I wonder how many more are considering this?
Since we are in the middle of the summer, let’s remember as USC tries to drum up interest in football season that Mike Bohn/Clay Helton decided not to play in a bowl game last season.
Every USC player I spoke to said they wanted to play in a bowl game. But when Kedon Slovis and Amon-Ra St. Brown got hurt, Helton and Bohn suddenly said the team wanted to be with their families.
I bring it up because there was little “Fight On” spirit shown in that decision even though you will hear Helton/Bohn talk about being competitive or playing like “warriors.”
