The basketball team’s victory over UCLA was easily the most satisfying victory of any USC sports team this season. But it also illustrates just how bad things are going for the biggest sports: Football was awful, men’s basketball fired the coach and is sub .500, women’s basketball is 8-11. Does anyone expect baseball to do anything . . . again?
Those are the Big Four sports. And it is getting old hearing about how great water polo and men’s tennis are doing. There is no way a school with USC’s tradition, location and resources should be so bad in the Big Four sports.
