Here’s a Carol Folt quote on from the Athletic story the Lincoln Riley hire.
“I did have a couple of people who wrote me letters and said, ‘Boy, I’ve been giving you a lot of grief online. I want to say I’m sorry.’ I did get those and it was actually really fun to get those,” Folt said. “And I got really nice ones from other people who said they were really hoping but weren’t sure it was going to happen.”
Did some of this blog’s readers write to Folt?
- My take from Day 1 of the Riley hire has been this: Obviously, it was a great move for USC. But it’s also true USC waited too long to fire Clay Helton and went through one of the worst seasons in its history in 2021. That will always be on Mike Bohn, no matter what the USC spin machine says.
