    She will cite other past issues the University has and is dealing with to disband the song girls and head off any lawsuits.

    Her intent is to make USC a pure as the driven snow University, dam anybody's opinion, her word will be the law of the land.

    No creditable source yet, but it is coming, just to many bad stories in the news about the University in her opinion.

    Song Girls got banned at Galen due to some joining student section yelling get rid of Clay I recall. Folt will save us from toxic culture. That is why local alumni clubs banned also.

    So you are just repeating gossip? That is an irresponsible headline.

    Whose idea was political correctness in the first place? A dark day for our society.

    I don't think it's true at all.
    Complete and total conjecture....clickbait thread title IMO.

    I always like to get worked up over figments of someone's imagination. Not enough stuff in the real world to be pissed off about, so I like to get angry at Folt for imaginary mistakes as well.

    Damn! Hope it isn’t true... I can always count on the Song Girls & the Band when Clueless was destroyed our once Nationally relevant program!

    The problem is that even after the Tyndall settlement where the unconscionable behavior of a university employee resulted in a $1.1 Billion cost, the University is still afraid of its employees. Instead of firing the SG Coach after the internal investigation substantiated the complaints from former and current SGs the university swept it under the rug and let the Coach resign. How about issuing a public report on the findings, firing bad employees for cause, and if they sue for "wrongful" termination defending the University's actions in court.

    Sad that this thread topic, while not true, is believable.

    No, the problem is that the university is afraid to do a real investigation where they listen to both sides of an argument before drawing conclusions because they are afraid that there will be nothing to see and hence, there will be no narrative to support. And let's face it, in today's world, EVERYTHING is about the narrative du jour. In this case, that narrative is about the harassment and exploitation of vulnerable women. It's a serious issue that absolutely needs to be investigated and adjudicated (unlike how they handled Tyndall) but I don't see anywhere where Nelsen's behavior or the horrible working conditions she supposedly put the women under was corroborated with the multitude of women who were also song girls under her direction. Is it possible these were isolated complaints and not representative of the program? I don't know but my guess is that the university never made any attempt to find out because it might kill a narrative they supported. Look up disingenuous in the dictionary and there is a picture of Bovard.

    This is just another step to USC stop being an elite football school.
    Makes a person long for Mike Garret back.
    Mistakes in the past should not stop us from still trying our best.

    But Folt the Dolt got rid of the support groups and told us to connect on social media. Folt doesn't understand USC. They're trying to cut off the alumni so we don't have a voice.

    And you think they would share that with some random guy as they are making an appearance at an event?
