USC's offer to buy the Sports Arena is one of the few things that has made sense during the current Coliseum imbroglio. Yet, Coliseum General Manager Joel Ralph reacted "coolly" and said the USC offer would not be given priority. Ralph obviously has been trained in arrogance and stupidity by the members of the Coliseum Commission who reacted in the same manner with the Raiders, Rams, UCLA, Lakers, etc.
USC should immediately begin work on an on-campus basketball facility and tell Ralph he can add the Sports Arena to the collection of dinosaurs at the nearby County Museum.
