Here’s USC general counsel Todd Dickey on Tuesday: “The Coliseum has not benefited from substantive physical upgrades or preventative maintenance for more than ten years because the Commission has focused on attracting an NFL team that would renovate the stadium.”
But here’s Dickey last October: “It’s a great college football stadium. It was earthquake retro-fitted in the mid-’90s and should be good to go for decades.
“There may be some seats that need to be replaced, but it’s in pretty good shape. I don’t hear any complaints from our people about the quality of the Coliseum.”
