    I would imagine the USC boards will look a lot like ours after Embree was hired.

    Ok. Serious question: does Lynn Swan have any experience in a college athletic department? I mean, as anything other than a player.

    This is what I was thinking,

    Has he ever hired coaches or any kind of management, has he ever negotiated large contracts, has he ever done program or personel evaluation.

    About the only place I can see him being a plus would be fundraising, and that only because of his name.

    He's part owner of an AFL team. I have no idea how involved he is with team decisions.

    If there's one thing USC needs, it's better fundraising. /sarcasm

    USC could dominate the world if they ever learned how to get out of their own way. But they keep making the same mistake over and over and over and over and over and over and over again.

    Weren't you recently commenting (in another thread) about how USC people look out for each other. This is really not a surprise.

    No, that was somebody else, but it is true. It is a strength and a weakness. A strength for the weak person because it pulls them up and a weakness for the strong because they hire people that bring their organization down. A race to the middle. Garrett, Haden, Swann, Kiffin, Sarkisian, Helton are all the same mistake. The only insider hire they have made in forever that worked out was Robinson the first time around and he was riding McKay's coattails anyway. USC will point to Tollner, Smith, and Hackett as outsiders that failed and use that to justify hiring USC inbreds. Of course the two best hires they have ever made were McKay and Carroll and both were outsiders (McKay did coach as an assistant one year before being hired). Anyway, the Helton and Swann hires sure looks like USC doing its job to ensure that they don't dominate in football again.
