Thursday Whispers: Going To The Showcase?
Lynn Swann is telling associates that USC will draw 10,000-15,000 to the Coliseum for its fall scrimmage on August 17. Tickets are $10.
But who will go?
“The only people that will go are people who want to see that (new) tower they built,” said a booster who has donated millions to USC. “I’m not going.”
Will the average fan go?
It’s likely to be hot that day and people remain skeptical about the team. On the other hand, people want to see the renovated Coliseum.
“I would think 5,000 is a more realistic number,” the booster said. “Lynn Swann is ridiculous.”
