USC often reminds its fans that it doesn’t always know best. Let’s remember two years ago when it basically dismantled the alumni clubs and wanted everything (money) funneled directly to the university. I was reminded of this when thinking about how if you donated money to BLVD, 50 percent would go to the general fund. So you might give money for football and less than … Continue reading If It’s Friday, It’s Time For A USC Notes Column
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?

I mean, if you were a USC booster, wouldn’t you have complete confidence in BLVD? Remember two weeks ago I wrote about players frustrated over the lack of NIL deals. Just listen to these pitches: Don’t be afraid to change the game. If you’re good enough, the game will come to you. The best athletes in the world don’t adapt their style to the game, … Continue reading USC Quick Thought: At Least NIL Is Going Well
I frequently rail about the way USC honors its former athletes. And I never run out of material. The athletic dept. recently emailed its former athletes inviting them to a pre-game pizza party at Heritage Hall before the USC-Rice game on Sept. 3. The slice of pizza was free but the ex-athletes had to pay for the drinks (including soda). Typical. But here is the … Continue reading Another Own Goal By USC
