In my annual Christmas tradition, here is my all-time favorite USC picture.
Hollywood screen legend Greta Garbo was sent to USC in 1926 to pose for some publicity photos with the track team.
Garbo initially refused until MGM deducted $25 from her salary, which convinced her to head to campus and don a USC track singlet.
She is with a USC track assistant coach in the above photo.
Here she is with USC track coach Dean Cromwell.
And here she is with some members of the track team.
- This morning, four-star QB Nico Iamaleava of Warren High School announced his top 12 schools. USC did not make the cut. Did Iamaleava leave USC off his list because QB Malachi Nelson of Los Alamitos already committed?
Maybe. This will be a test of Lincoln Riley’s evaluation skills to see which one was better, kind of like Bryce Jones vs. DJ Uiagalelei.
Riley did get a commitment from 2023 five-star WR Zachariah Branch on Christmas Eve.
