USC Morning Buzz: History Repeats Itself At Heritage Hall

When USC renovated Heritage Hall in 2013, the $35 million project was going to solve the woes of the athletic dept.

It had outgrown the space and for decades every nook-and-cranny, including closets, started getting used for office space.

“The reality is that we have outgrown Heritage Hall and we are badly undersized and overcrowded in there,” then-athletic director Pat Haden said.

The new Heritage Hall (70,000 square feet) nearly doubled the size of the old building as the basement was greatly expanded to include a bigger weightroom, locker rooms, video studio, film rooms, lounges and most importantly, more offices for coaches and administrators.

Well, guess what?

Even with all that planning, USC is currently turning a storage room into . . . even more offices.

The hiring flurry at the athletic dept. has created another office space crunch. Maybe it’s all those social media hires.

It’s not the first time since the building was renovated. Boy Wonder Brandon Sosna converted a tiny meeting room into his own office, mainly because it was connected to Mike Bohn’s office. That led some to joke Sosna had the kids’ office.

History repeats itself. Here’s athletic director Jess Hill standing in a crowded trophy room at the Student Union to show USC needed to build Heritage Hall in the first place.

For the history buffs, here is the original rendering in 1955 for Heritage Hall.

      1. Gabby,

        come out from under the Socialist Commie flag and see Captalism work. have you seen high skyscrappers? If not, look them up. Not only do they hold more space by going up but they create jobs and revenue. Jobs will be creatwed because there is a demand for the space. Revenue is created by charging for the space. That is enough for one day. I don’t want to overload you. it will take a long time to helping you divert from being the dipshit that you are and believing that biden is a great president. We have two years to get you ready for th either De Santos or Trump. Plenty of time. Yes, you can go up with buildings when you don’t have anymore space. It is cheaper than digging down in the ground.

      2. YOU SENILE TROLL, HOW EASY YOU FORGET!!!! Trump used socialism to save capitalism, where was your outrage back then,,,,, answer me or STFU… My comment flew right over your brick-filled brain(embarrassing)…..Had nothing to do with building up….. Once again, what decade were you born in?…..

        PS….speaking of jobs, let me refresh your memory, your king was the only prez in HISTORY to leave the office with fewer jobs, he lost 11 million…In contrast, Biden has the lowest unemployment rate in over 40 years……BAMMMMM CROTCH KICK….. go ice your mushroom cap!

  2. LA Times has an article on a new collective, outside the control of the school, with old-time donors. This is very good news.

    I have real doubts about the people running Stay Doubted. I dont think they have a clue about athlete representation. They are just people from USC’s athletic department.

    1. Look at all the “candid” videos and instagram posts of the dude who runs Stay doubted. It makes me not doubt that this whole thing is done with smoke and mirrors. He is totally scripted, though it is made to look like it is at a distance and in passing conversation, and he talks around in circles and never actually says anything. He just uses trendy catch phrases. USC admin duped again.

  3. ESPN has selected USC football as ‘Wide Receiver U’ yet again this year. This is a yearly occurrence. Even in a year where SC just had their worst year in program history, they are still king when it comes to wide receiver performance and development.

    2. Gabby,

      Pull your head out of the sand. You seem to forget which always happens when you are a democrap socilaist red card caring biden ass kisser, that the Covid Panedemic was roaring at full power when President Trump left office. I have to explain this very slowly to you so you can understand, T-r-u-m-p d-i-d n-o-t lose the jobs, the economy dictated that jobs were not needed. Trump does not create or eliminate jobs. Policies do. But you don’t mention how Trump’s policies created jobs, unemployment was at its lowest, and he created a vaccince becuase one of the democrap hench men, Faucci practiced the Hunter Biden effect, make money and endanger the US while they do it.

      Gabby, now it is time for you nappie nap. Do you plan your naps when biden takes his? I bet you do.

      1. you’re tooooo easy!!!!…. your lies are truly pathetic!

        -“Pull your head out of the sand”. …..Wait!….. when trump farted, you and beavis both popped out(stinky!!!!)

        “You seem to forget which always happens when you are a democrap socilaist red card caring biden ass kisser”. … Joe has the sweetest ass I have ever kissed…..PS….you missed spelled “socialist”

        “Covid Panedemic was roaring at full power when President Trump left office”……So, you admitted trump was a failure at controlling covid, yet he gets a pass for his incompetence. You conveniently blame Biden for all the residual damage trump caused.

        “I have to explain this very slowly to you so you can understand, T-r-u-m-p d-i-d n-o-t lose the jobs, the economy dictated that jobs were not needed”….. Trump’s failure as a leader lost jobs. Trump told Bob Woodward, that he knew covid was far more serious than he wanted the public to know. He told Americans, that 15 cases would be down to zero in no time, just another fucking lie. We have 4% of the total world population, with 25% of all the deaths in the entire world from covid….massive failure at the top leadership

        “Trump does not create or eliminate jobs. Policies do”……You total dipshit. Trump created policies that dictated job growth or job loss. like his failed covid policies….

        “But you don’t mention how Trump’s policies created jobs,”…..YOU SOUND FUCKING CONFUSED…. you just said trump didn’t create jobs. 68% OF THE JOBS TRUMP CLAIMED RESPONSIBILITY FOR PAID $15 AN HOUR OR LESS, IS THAT A LIVING WAGE?

        “unemployment was at its lowest”, …another lie!….. numerous preceding presidents had better numbers…..Matter of fact, Biden’s 3.4% is the lowest in over 40 years

        ” he created a vaccine”….. Wow!!! …another lie(crazy!)….Trump had absolutely nothing to do with the research and development of any of the vaccines. The federal government placed an order and it was filled by private companies…. Trump asked Pfizer to name their vaccine after him…the response was a big middle finger

        “becuase one of the democrap hench men, Faucci practiced the Hunter Biden effect, make money and endanger the US while they do it” …… trump used socialism to give his major donors, and wealthy corporations free money that was used to create the biggest stock buyback in the history of this country…..where was your outrage?

        With that said, what conclusion would a stable genius, like yourself, reach when trump pled the 5th for 5 hours straight, after mocking the same people who have done it previously?….. SAY IT!!!!!! ….and don’t give some fucking pathetic answer!

  5. If they are tearing down a bunch of dorms, then how hard is it to take one of those spaces and build a second athletic building on the rubble of the old dorm?

    1. marvienna,

      If SC was smart, they would do a feasibility study to see what brings in more revenue, new classroom space, new dorm, new athletic building. it is also what SC wants. Knowing them they will want some transgender, homo, lesbo, midget hall for people like Gabby. They have to stay with the times.
