“The term “Trojan family” seems to have undertaken a concerted, somewhat organized effort through email to alert new President Folt just how unhappy they are with the USC athletic department. Don’t kill the messenger, but a major amount of emails – as told to me through one very active alum – is well underway and the messages through email all say the same thing: Things need to change immediately, and those in the crosshairs are at the very top of the athletic department food chain. At this point, there’s no question that Folt is very much aware of the toxic problems, and the only questions really are what is she going to do about them and when?
“With the FBI investigating athletic administrative employees for the pay-to-play admission scandals (follow the money) and the lawsuits both current and new ones probably on the way, it’s a tangled cardinal and gold web being woven. It makes one wonder if the only way out – before or after the legal system runs its course – is a complete makeover of the athletic administration (some may call it administrative leave). It may take a complete “fresh start” to regain the credibility and confidence of those inside and outside the department (namely the exasperated fans base and powerful alumni) in order to return to its rightful place in the L.A. sports community. As things stand today, it’s safe to say that there is little to no faith in the current direction of USC athletics, which is so sad to say.”
