The Path Ahead

Many of our readers and members of WeAreSC are wondering about the future of our website, since the loss of Garry Paskwietz has left a tremendous hole in the USC community and the fabric of WeAreSC. He was the founder, the publisher, the heart, and the soul of this website.

He is also the reason it will continue to operate, continue to cover USC Trojans athletics to the best of its ability, and continue to build and maintain a close-knit community full of passionate discourse, compelling insights, and eventually, again, the humor and levity that have made this site and message board a must-follow for anybody looking for the most comprehensive and intimate coverage of USC football and Trojan athletics.

While we never had an opportunity to work out all the details of an eventual transition, Garry and I did speak several times about me taking up the torch sometime in the future, though I’m sure we both thought it would never be this soon. As such, I will be exploring with others involved in the site, the best way to take up the mantle and establish the best path forward for WeAreSC.

Because of Garry, the WeAreSC brand and community are strong. The staff will continue to do its best work on his and your behalf. And we will fight on together. Because We Are SC.
