Will Muschamp sees college football headed toward XFL-style kickoff

Keeping Clay Helton around wasn’t a usually preference final year that dissapoint USC fans. Now a propagandize backtracking on a choice it usually done has cost a module a flattering penny.

For those not in a know, principal and bullion supporters adult in arms final year when it was announced a module had agreed to a non-conference diversion with UC Davis for a 2021 season. Such a competition typically doesn’t pull most courtesy yet it did in Los Angeles as it was a initial FCS competition a Trojans were to play in their shining history.

That would have left rivals UCLA and Notre Dame as a usually dual FBS programs not to play an FCS team.

Then things changed. The jaunty executive obliged for a deal, Lynn Swann, was shown a door. His replacement Mike Bohn has left about perplexing to make justification and recently announced that USC had eventually corroborated out of a game opposite a Aggies.

In their place on a calendar during a Coliseum that season is another Bay Area team, San Jose State. We already recounted how a Spartans done out utterly easily on a change piece as a outcome of this (and successive buyout from Georgia) swap. As it turns out though, they weren’t a usually Northern California group to do so.

According to the Davis Enterprise, a buyout UCD was due was usually ostensible to be $225,000. However terms called for that to burst to $725,000 after a start of a new year. Because a Trojans waited around they afterwards had to hack adult that additional half million for doing something they had been deliberation given a new administration came in.

“It’s flattering funny. We had each goal of personification that game,” Aggies comparison associate entertainment director Josh Flushman told a paper. “We usually wanted to make certain (if there were) buyouts we were going to get a money.

“In December, (AD Kevin Blue) and we joking said, ‘Don’t take any phone calls from L.A. numbers until after a first.’”

The call didn’t come until Feb and a propagandize is that most richer for it. On tip of that they combined a $400,000 pledge diversion from Tulsa to reinstate Southern Cal on a report to boot.

Waiting might be a hardest partial for some yet it resulted in a good seven-figure benefit during UC Davis.
