    I have a hunch the Urban thing will go down like the Petersen interest a couple of years ago, both had interest but the higher up shot it down.

    Not only a total liar, but if he really looked at everything and determined Helton was "our best option" than he is also stupid as shit.

    I think being shady is a requirement to work at USC. My wife got some offers from Keck and the associated hospitals but turned it down because they've been known to do shady stuff.

    so many questions.....

    Did he watch every game of the last two seasons, every minute?

    Helton named Max Browne the starter for gosh sake! This aww shucks routine is infuriating.

    It’s a ruse. At the end of the day, he is close minded stubborn bozo that only deals with people that like him or he’s not threatened by. You know the loves of his life. I told you guys Helton would see this as a ringing endorsement of his skills and abilities

    Mind boggling decision unless he was, "Just following orders."
    If Helton was not replaced this year, I do not see it happening in 2020 unless there is a complete collapse akin to a 4-8 record. Mediocrity of 7-5 is acceptable as business as usual. Can anyone imagine a CEO or owner of a company accepting this turd? Only in academia circles is this Okay.

    Yep, that's on the nose. That's negotiating 101 for those unfamiliar with how these things go.

    He’s lying. Meyer and Stoops wanted full control. Their own people in HH.

    SC said no. The power is more important than winning.

    We are a tier 2 fb program now.

    Maybe, there was never an intention to replace Helton. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if Folt hired Bohn knowing he would be a good little lap dog.

    Maybe that's why there were no leaks about Urban Meyer. It was so quiet. Too quiet. Many of us thought it was so quiet because they were making a deal. Maybe the reason it was so quiet is there was nothing to leak since the lap dog came to USC with the agreement that Helton wasn't being fired thus he didn't even pursue Meyer.

    Bohn saw his chance at a bigger payday, more prestige, and a chance to retire in sunny Southern California. If he has to tow Folt's line for 5-6 years so be it. Bohn doesn't care about USC fans. He cares about his career.

    Ever heard of President Donald Trump?

    For that matter, Dubya, Obama, Clinton, Bush I, Reagan, and probably every president ever.

    There has never been this much outright vitriol by 90% of the base in such a short time ever. For a guy nobody even knew 2 months ago to this. Quite an arrival.

    By higher up do you mean Bohn/Haden or Folt/Nikias? Haden botched the interview and had his mind made up on Sark, I never heard anything to suggest Nikias blocked Petersen.
