The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Commission has voted to hand over day-to-day control of the Coliseum to USC.
USC will enter into a long-term lease that should allow them to control the Coliseum for as long as anyone reading this will care about (generally thought to be 42 years; but we hear it might wind up being effectively longer than that when all is said and done).
Have to say we are impressed with USC's athletic administration in how they handled this. We've already told you how nice USC's on-campus facilities are going to be in about two months when they move into their brand new facilities. If you haven't seen it for yourself, it's literally hard to comprehend how impressive their new facility will be. Now, once they renovate the Coliseum, which is just a short walk from campus, USC will literally be able to spoon feed the recruits.
Expect USC to be a perennial top ten team for the foreseeable future. If anyone disagrees with me (@FootballScoop) please agree to meet me on their campus this Fall and see it for yourself. Lane is building a beast there...
