Is anyone going to the Salute to Troy this weekend?
I haven’t talked to anyone who is going, which surprises me, especially with all the buzz around Lincoln Riley.
Some people have told me they definitely aren’t going, a residue of a frustration with USC football the past few seasons.
I have to say USC hasn’t done a lot to promote it. USC sent out an email to season-ticket holders with a loud video by Mike Bohn promising more details and then never sent out the follow-up.
Maybe after not having the Salute to Troy since 2018, USC wanted to take a low-key approach. But why not blast out the event with Riley as the frontman?
The idea of the Salute to Troy in June instead of a week before the season is also odd. But that shouldn’t be a reason to keep things under wraps.
