In sporting news, USC is getting their wish! In a vote of 8-1, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum commission approved to hand over day-to-day control of the publicly owned stadium to USC on Monday. The one vote who opposed the agreement was commissioner Bernard C. Parks for reasons unknown at this time. The coliseum, which is 88 years old, will now have its master lease under the control of USC which had been seeking control for years and it gives the university exclusive right to use, manage and operate the facility. After rejecting USC’s offer to pay $100 million to renovate the Coliseum four years ago in exchange for the master lease, the commission finally concluded they will not be able to keep their promise last year to USC to make $50 million in improvements. Now that USC has control of the stadium, they plan to return the Coliseum back to its rich and beautiful condition that once hosted events such as Super Bowls and Summer Olympics.
