If You Rebuild It, They Won’t Come

USC baseball is one of the surprising teams in the country and somehow contending for first place in the Pac-12.

But you wouldn’t know it from the crowds at Dedeaux Field, which are the smallest since at least 2018, according to Annenberg Media.

USC currently averages 454 fans per game. Last year, when USC went 25-28, it drew 573 fans per game.

Obviously, the fans/students, used to years of neglect, have not caught on to the turnaround.

This is where Coach Bohn needs to get his marketing dept. more involved to support baseball and try to get more students to the games.

Bohn loves to talk about increasing the “intensity of interest” of fans but USC averaged just 3,667 per game in basketball before Arizona juiced the figures with its late-season visit.

He needs to support the baseball program while it is the talk of the Pac-12.

      1. The Biggest Loser Donald J. Trump, (R) Gym Jordan and other republicans want to defund the police


      2. Trump also said he wants to defund the FBI…… I am sure it has nothing to do with the toys they took from him


      3. Love the way you & the bonehead doing the podcast take one thing with which they disagree with Trump and act as if they’ve completely turned on him.

        Doocy went on to ask, “How many of you think if the primary were held today, Trump would be the nominee? All 6 raised their hands.

        He then asked, “How many of you think he would win the general election?” 4 of the 6 raised their hands including 2 Democrats. Virtually all them said that with all of the things we have going on today and with the way the DOJ ignored Hillary’s improprieties, the fact they’re going after him after such petty issues is a joke.

        I’m not saying they’re right or wrong. I’m just saying it’s hilarious that fool and you point to that interview as proof they’re turning on him.

      4. Stick to move quotes and marching bands, you’re absolutely clueless when it comes to sports and politic. The little rebuttal was comical.

        Any fair-minded half-wit knows Trump stands little to no chance of winning the General election. If a was a betting man, the chances of him being behind bars are far more likely to happen. We are laughing at you…..


      5. Good luck with so cal responding. He can’t even debate himself out of a paper bag. That’s not even mentioning all his cognitive lapses.


      6. Dumbass can’t read. I clearly stated I don’t necessarily agree with those 6 people regarding how well Trump will do. I merely pointed out the fact that the discussion in its entirety did not demonstrate that those 6 people had “turned on him” nor did they agree with him having been indicted.

        His reading comprehension is severly lacking. But he’ll lie, spin and ignore the fact he generates far more laughs on here than anyone. His denial about all the people on this blog who have called out his bs is amusing, especially for someone who tries to claim I have cognitive lapses.

        The correlation you were trying to make failed. But I am the one with reading comprehension issues. I truly feel sorry for the people around you who have to deal with a sociopath.

        I don’t give a fuck what people on this blog think of me. At least I provide relevant content related to football, and you provide absolutely nothing relatable.

        It’s really small of you to continue with the name-calling. Let’s meet up, so you can call me names directly to my face….Any real man with balls does it in person, not behind a keyboard…..


  1. Scott….MLB just went through some major changes in to appeal to the fans. Winning isn’t going to draw fans, it’s the actual game itself. The pace of baseball is not in line with how many young adults are weird. The average MLB fan is 58 years old.

    When you can’t attack the product on the field you resort to the usual mentality of attacking the lack of spectators.

    Where are all the football interviews?(crickets)


  2. In springtime, the sounds emanating from old Bovard Field, which I fondly recall, were sweet seasonal music. A siren’s call, class attendance diverting at times.

    1. Rushy does a crummy Tiny Tim imitation. Rushy gets a C- for pretentious BS and no ukulele .

      1. Oh, JustOdious, once again you’ve checked the pathologically juvenile, ultracrepidarian, decrepit septuagenarian with a putrid, self-delusional, churlish bile soaked brain, and envy born of self-loathing and failure boxes. Once again, cue Skew Siskin’s “Head Up Your Ass.”


  3. Scooter,

    You are correct. However, none of the sports sections support college baseball. Used to get a write up and the scores in the paper. Not anymore. I watch it on Live Stream.

    Scooter, you could have mentioned that SC is playing San Deigo St starting tonight and through Saturday. I will be there on Saturday.

  4. It has been too cold at night for the evening baseball games with opponent lacking a name. Now 6: 30 pm starts on Saturday. It was
    fun on a Saturday afternoon to still have the evening to go out on
    the town. Team needs to prove it is legitimate, and will not fold at
    season’s end. No star pitcher to draw a crowd on the weekend. I
    have followed the baseball program closely since the early 70’s

  5. I don’t believe the colleges implemented “the clock” into the game as MLB has
    which has shaved about a half hour off the length of games because pitchers
    and batters have no time anymore to readjust their jock straps


  6. Memo to: Rushy Mushy

    re: Oh, JustOdious, once again you’ve checked the pathologically juvenile, ultracrepidarian, decrepit septuagenarian with a putrid, self-delusional, churlish bile soaked brain, and envy born of self-loathing and failure boxes. Once again, cue Skew Siskin’s “Head Up Your Ass.”

    Damn Mushy, are you mad? You know what Mush, you remind me
    of Eddie Haskell with a dash of Lumpy.

    Cue: Mushy’s hit single, “I’m Glad I Look Like a Doltish Donkey.”

    How about a Hee Haw for dear auld SUCC, Mushy.


    1. What, no rebuttal?! Of course not. Facts are facts. So JustOdious, you were up all night trying to come up with a “clever” response instead? Grade “F” .Which also stands for fatuous. As for the ad hominem attack (ultracrepidarian that it is), I imagine you haven’t posted a picture of yourself because you are a butt ugly wrinkled old Reekie louse. Come on, show us that smug mug. Then cue your theme song: “I’m A Loser.” Cheer on for whatever second rate institution without standards accepted you. Perhaps the Banana Slugs, emphasis on Slugs. What a dim lit light weight.


      1. Mushy brays short and loudly.

        And Mushy, what clever repartee: “…you are a butt ugly wrinkled old Reekie louse.” What a shovel full of haggis.

        #WTF, Auld-Reekie, an affectionate term for the old town of Edinburgh.

        Damm Mushy, for a doltish donkey, you’re working hard to keep up, I’ll give you a C+ for that.


        Cue: The “B” side of Mushy’s hit single: I’m a Buck Toothed Donkey and Proud of It.”

        Mushy floats like a bad, bozo, beer fart and stings like a ladybug.


      2. Deflection drivel, as usual, JustOdious. You should apply the back side of your pseudonym and simply own up to being the envious troll that you are.

        PS~Auld Reekie, you completely missed the point, of course. A better dictionary would be helpful, if you can afford one, or do some actual research. Better yet, give your keyboard a break and visit Edinburgh. You get a “D” for research, which also, in your case, stands for dolt (rhymes with Folt).

        Come on, JustOdious, let’s compare. Post the mug shot. Give us a glimpse. Better yet, post your diploma from whatever third rate institution you attended. My guess: DSH Coalinga. Arrogant and brilliant? Tolerable. Arrogant and stupid? Not so much. You’re mired in the “not so much” category.

        Cue “How Sweet To Be An Idiot”


  7. You nailed it Wolfie
    That baseball program has a really good coach and he’s doing his job because they are winning as they have everywhere he was a HC. Now Bohn needs to do his job and let people know that we have a real good baseball program.


  8. Memo to: Mushy, the Bard of Auld Reekie

    re: “Deflection drivel, as usual, JustOdious. You should apply the back side of your pseudonym and simply own up to being the envious troll that you are.”

    I do not claim to know WTF a doltish, toothy donkey like yourself Mushy, thinks or means, nor do I care: I don’t speak donkey. I’m just not interested on your cheesy, Tiny Tim reminisces of grazing on Auld Blowhard Field crabgrass, as stray bullets whiz by, back in the day.

    #Mushy, the Bard of Auld Reekie: floats like SUCC frat party beer farts; stings like a ladybug.

    Is it true Mushy, you’re working on a cover of James Brown’s “Please, Please, Please” with a bagpipe band?

    Is it true Mushy, you love the smell of gun powder smoke in the morning?


  9. Are the students on break? Does anyone look forward to sitting in stands freezing at a college baseball game? Is the beer that bad?
