With all the successful business people from USC in Southern California, why didn’t the athletic dept. simply partner up with some of them for its NIL needs?
Instead, it wanted its own in-house operation with inexperienced people running it.
I raise this for the people who think Mike Bohn and Brandon Sosna had a golden touch with everything.
When you have the power of USC, you can hire Lincoln Riley. You can move to the Big Ten. And you can have the right people running the NIL operation.
- I’m hearing no one has emerged yet to claim the starting cornerback job opposite Mekhi Blackmon. You have two candidates (Domani Jackson, Max Williams) coming back from knee injuries. Joshua Jackson was highly touted at last year’s camp and then struggled during the season. It’s also possible one of the safeties could play nickel back if no one emerges.
Maybe this is where Donte Williams can earn his $1.2 million.
- Five-star offensive lineman Josh Conerly is already getting good notices at Oregon’s training camp. He picked the Ducks over USC.
