The USC Finance Committee will be voting today on the first-ever long-term deal between USC and the Coliseum. If approved, the contract will prevent the Trojans from relocating to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.
The deal includes USC having veto power over an NFL team coming to the Coliseum and gives the university a seat on the Coliseum Commission. USC will allow the Coliseum to use the school's name to generate income to pay for improvements.
Next season the Coliseum will be adorned with a new mural honoring the football team's mascot, Traveler, and the team's long tradition of success.
Our Trojan daughter arrived home for the summer earlier in the week. It's hard to believe she's over halfway to her degree!
