So on Tuesday, I met a member of the 1967 USC team for the first time. A guy who sometimes gets mentioned in stories on that team.
And the first thing the former player tells me is, “I got rid of my season tickets.”
He didn’t say, “I’m excited about the season.”
Or “How many games will USC win?”
Or “I want to see Korey Foreman play.”
Nope, the first comment was he dumped his ticket. And this is a guy who played in the perhaps the greatest game in USC history. That is the current attitude. He doesn’t plan on going to any home games unless there is some type of change regarding the program.
He’s not an angry type who posts anything on the internet. Just a former player who has had tickets for years and goes to the games. But even he said he had enough.
And you know if he walked into Heritage Hall, I doubt anyone who has been hired there in the past two years would recognize his name. Trojan Tradition!
