    A person need only have been a student at a school to be an alumnus. Graduation isn't required.

    Apparently you are wrong. It’s your offspring that matters. If they don’t go to USC, your time there is canceled out and you are not an alumnus.

    Merriam Webster defines an alumnus as a person who has attended or has graduated from a particular school, college, or university. Technically, Del Rio is an alumnus of both USC and KU. It still doesn't mean I want him as a HC.

    If you want another 3-5 years of mediocrity, JDR is your man.

    Lol.

    I liked Wendell when he was with the Rams. Shifty and fast, would have preferred fewer fumbles though.

    Technically, I enjoyed watching Jack Del Rio help lead USC to victory in the 1985 Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA although I did find it puzzling that he was wearing a blue and red uniform with a helmet depicting some sort of bird. Didn’t think too much of it at the time but now it’s starting to make sense. Rock Chalk Fight On!!

    In the interest of full disclosure, although I’ve cheered for SC for over 40 years, I got my degree from San Jose State. I hope this revelation does not preclude me from the tribe.

    No idea how good he will be but I like his mentality. He actually has a pretty nice NFL pedigree. I believe he led both Jacksonville and the Raiders to their best records in the past 15 years.
    Jacksonville has been one of the 3 worst NFL franchises the past 20 years but they were solid for 2 or 3 years of Del Rio’s tenure.

    I never get too excited about a hire or too down. We never know what we are gonna get. Pete Carroll had a worse NFL record than Del Rio, had never coached a college game, and look what happened. I’m not saying he will be half of what Pete was but for those who say no to JDR, I haven’t read one decent reason why.

    The worst thing about JDR that I can find is that he is another USC alum and at this point I am with most of you and would like to look outside the USC box.

    I disagree - none of them are alums, but they are ALL Trojans. For you to say otherwise is bordering on sacrilegious.

    I had a friend who got kicked out of Duke, after his eligibility was up. He was two classes short of his Duke degree. He took them at some small college in New York when he was in the NFL. Duke denied him a Duke degree. He sued them and won. Got a Degree with Duke on the diploma. I think they have to accept transfer credits

    If I was ASKED the softball question JDR was asked, "would you ever want to be the USC Football Coach?", I'd have said YES too, and I have no business as the USC Football Coach nor would USC EVER consider me...the fact that another site chose to make this a "STORY" is pure silliness! This was NOT a serious question when asked, and in really listening to the JDR response, wasn't a real answer EITHER. Currently USC has a HFBC whose preparing his staff and players to BEAT the Cougs!

    Fight On, FOREVER, Fight On!

    Exactly. JDR was not “pimping” himself, seeking the spotlight, or pushing for the USC HC job. He was just answering a question honestly.

    What in the holy fvck are you talking about?
    I wasn’t questioning that he pushed his kid to schools other than USC.
    I was questioning that you even remotely consider that a thing that someone, anyone should do.

    Lawd Almighty I pray you don’t have any children, because you are way too fvcking stupid to procreate.

    Once again, I would love to be a fly on the wall when you tell Jack Freaking Del Rio that in your little pea sized brain, you don’t think he has thr right to call himself a Trojan.

    Maybe you could do it under his photo in the USC Sports Hall of Fame.

    Board has gone to shyte

    You are also wrong about the “Alum”thing

    Jack Del Rio is a Trojan ALUMNUS. Once again, that isn’t your decision to make
