5. Deep pockets. USC alumn have $$$$. People like Will Ferrell, Quincy Jones, George Lucas, Dr. Jerry Buss, Frank McCourt (Dodger owner), Ron Howard etc.
good research, lawlerslaw... nicely done :-)
having said that, numbers 2 to 5 have been true for awhile (top of my head, not research... room for error :-).... yet usc has offered little in the way of bball....
so basically, your powerhouse supposition is based upon mayo's desire to go to 'sc cuzza floyd and the new Galen Center?
interesting... i still don't think that mayo is heading to 'sc, but i still call ucla pac 10 champs this year and next, whether he goes or not...
if he does, enjoy your one-and-done... hope he helps your program...
