Oh yeah, that guy....the clown that breached security by running back onto the plane after he and his wife had already agreed to accept the compensation that United offered them and then proceeded to spit on and swing at an officer prior to any video footage of the event.

United employees called in the airport police to escort out the randomly chosen seated passengers. When this gentleman refused to vacate his seat, they reached for him. They took him out of the airplane and then he came back. So police got involved much earlier than you claim. Not "after".

Here are two links which describe United CEO's second letter where he described the event as reported by the United Employees. Could you please point out where did the passenger accept United's offer? Remember that the flight was "fully boarded". Everyone was sitting in their assigned seats (most probably).……

Seems like the overbooking jokes are all covered. USC has pretty much decided that they only care about money now.

The Coliseum, while awesome to be at from a historical perspective, is a terrible place to watch a football game. The only decent sight lines are between the 40s. As part of the new renovation, they are replacing a huge chunk of the only good seats with suites inside the bowl (unlike Michigan and Notre Dame who put their suites above the bowl so people got to keep their season tickets).

Sad times for college football, but not unexpected. I understand small schools doing this out of necessity. USC has no excuse, especially with all the extra money they're getting from the Rams now.

The Coliseum was originally made as a track and field stadium, so the "field" is much larger than your typical football stadium. The seats are far away from the field. I have heard it's gotten a tad better since the last time I was there because they raised up the field a bit.

They have experiemented with shifting the football field around. Currently it's shoved to one side of the stadium which makes it okay for one endzone, but terrible for the other. Not sure if there is plans to address this with the new renovations.

Seems like you could just sell large swaths of space on the bad end.  Let people bring in coolers, etc and spread out.  Sure the view would be mediocre to bad, but being able to sprawl out would offset it to a degree.  Then just do a railing between that and normal seating to keep people from try to sneak the coolers/etc into the normally spaced seats.

Is this supposed to be sarcastic?  

LA only gave a shit about USC during their heyday with Carrol et al., let alone UCLA football.  

Laughable that the NFL thinks the LA market can support one, let alone two NFL teams...and if LA is going to root for a team, it will be the Raiders.  

I saw more people wearing Michigan gear in Brentwood then UCLA or USC gear last winter.

Why does it matter if a company puts their name before Michigan Stadium and hands over say $100 mill. It amazes me that the nose snub era of this fanbase are so obsessed with trying to claim they are better than others they would give up bunches of money that would benefit the University.
