    I would expect no less if Bohn is the man he says he is

    Definitely Rick. As the erstwhile politician, his first concern is "what will The Times say if we hire Urban?"

    Good point. Never thought of that. What a scum bag.

    I laughed. But sadly I believe Rick doesn't even care that much about USC.

    I’ve heard the opposite from all the insiders

    the BOT being on the right side of this thing and the administration who wants to retain Helton

    who knows at this point and I’m honestly starting to not care anymore

    Can someone enlighten me as to what might motivate Caruso or anyone else among the BOT to insist on retaining Helton? What exactly is implied in the comment about what the Times might say? How would that preclude hiring some other coach instead?

    The only thing that makes sense to me right now is that none of the top tier candidates said yes, and that Bohn decided the devil known is better than the devil unknown. But I’d like to understand the machinations on campus a bit better.

    Well it’s kinda hard to gauge a coach saying yes to a job not open.

    As Mr Miyagi say Karate Yes OK Karate No OK Karate maybe squish

    You never heard of WAX ON, WAX OFF Keen. Coach Out, Coach In. Same move.

    You are assuming Bohn didn't already know what he was getting into. Have you considered one of the conditions of getting hired was to not rock the boat with Folt and BOT?

    Not every AD is on a mission to save an athletic department. We as fans have been conditioned to think ADs are autonomous (or should be autonomous).

    He may be just like many other humans. Maybe he wanted to move up in his career, make more money, and live in a nicer area. If deferring to Folt was part of it then so be it.

    Bohn isn't stepping down. That's not realistic.

    We as fans are along for the ride.

    He has political aspirations. He probably needs academic donor money to fund.

    I don’t see how your reply addresses my interest in understanding your view of the motivation of those members of the BOT that were called out earlier in this topic.

    Perhaps, but let’s see how Bohn takes the heat because he is going to get a Hell’s worth.

    As he deserves to. If has indeed signed up to tow the USC line at all costs then he should know the fans will likely turn on him.

    It means no coach is going to interview for a job another coach has. Helton needs to be fired before any real search can happen. So my reply was a pop culture metaphor for Luke warm approach = disaster

    You guys that think Bohn got railroaded crack me up. As if he gives a shit. As I’ve said time and time again he took this job to retire by the beach. He doesn’t give a flying fuck what you think about the football program.

    You know what's even worse? ND and UCLY fans are rejoicing in their pants that helton was retained. The Domers just put an article out how it feels like Christmas for them. Bohn fucked up with this call. Coach Helton is mediocre you can't be Coaching USC if you can't even recruit in California a fucken cardboard cut out that says USC could get more recruits to commit than HeLLton.
