If you listened to Mike Bohn on the Gene Smith podcast, you know there’s going to be at least one gaffe.
Sure enough, Bohn talked about the Coliseum and said “it’s hosted a Rose Bowl.”
For the record, the Rose Bowl was played at Duke in 1942 and Arlington, Texas, in 2021. Every other time it was played in Pasadena.
There was another moment where Bohn lamented the limited audience for last weekend’s USC-Oregon State game and said “the game was only seen by about 12 million people in the country. I don’t think we’re going to have that issue in the Big Ten.”
Since 2015, Pac-12 teams averaged around 1.2 million viewers per game.
- There was some travel news:
Bohn said USC and UCLA could share charter flights.
“If we’re coming out to play Michigan and Michigan State in soccer, we’ll probably come on the same charter.”
And Smith suggested more than one sport could travel together.
“You don’t come from L.A. to play just one contest. You play Ohio State and Michigan and try to make sure soccer and volleyball are coming at the same time.”
