A Recent USC Tradition Ends

USC has canceled the Fountain Run, where seniors dash around the campus to the different fountains in various forms of clothing. It’s really something UCLA and other schools have done for years but only started at USC a few years ago.

USC student affairs said last year’s run caused almost $50,000 in damage and “$6,582 in ambulance costs (2014) and “73 medical calls over the last five years,” according to the Daily Trojan.

I wonder how many medical costs and ambulance costs were incurred at the Row the past five years? An outdoor block party called the Senior Run is now planned instead.

USC Morning Buzz: The Baby Quarterback’s College Debut


It seems ages ago that David Sills committed to USC as a 13-year-old. It even seems a long time since he decommitted from USC. But he’s currently competing in spring drills for West Virginia, where there is a quarterback competition. His main competitors were onthe team last season so Sills is behind in learning the offense.

But his spring will probably be a little more active than Ricky Town’s spring game last weekend at USC, when he threw one pass that was intercepted. So maybe Sills is fortunate USC nudged him elsewhere.
