Wednesday Whispers: What Makes Lynn Swann Tick?
With Lynn Swann at a low point in his term as athletic director, I decided to speak to one of his former USC teammates.
Swann comes off as an enigma to outsiders. He seems to only be passionate about golf, doesn’t like to sign autographs and doesn’t seem to care if he alienates USC fans.
So what does someone who knows him more than 40 years think?
“A lot of people really don't like him because of the way he acts,” the ex-player said. “He’s always thought he was above everyone else.
“He feels like he needs to act a certain way. I don't know what makes him tick.
“There aren't a lot of people who have the patience to deal with this dude.”
“He was never liked by most of his teammates.”
