When I talk to USC boosters, there is obviously optimism about the future.
But if I hear complaints there are two things that keep coming up, one which I did not expect.
- Many complain they do not like the free-agency aspect of college football. This is not surprising because a lot of fans across the country are not thrilled with this.
- The other complaint I hear is the cost of Lincoln Riley’s house in Palos Verdes ($17.2 million). They want to know if USC paid for it and why he needed such a gaudy estate.
My guess is this is something people can relate to (or not relate to in this case) and it bothers them. A lot of these same boosters were irate when USC bought Carol Folt a house in Santa Monica.
