This is an urgent plea to my fellow USC alums, because I know how impetuous we can be. Now is not the time to rush to judgment regarding Coach (John) Robinson because of his 1-2 start. After all, things are a lot different today in the Pacific 10 compared to when Robinson led Troy the last time. Today, Trojan athletes must compete on the field as well as in the classroom--and the ability to read and write is now mandatory.
