    Could it be that no one at USC knew of her mother's passing? I didn't know, but why would I?

    Nowadays with the way obits have gone you have to rely on someone to tell you. You used to just read through the state paper each morning and know who had passed. Now you have to find your way through that crap on their website which is one big advertisement.

    You do think someone would have told someone about it.

    And I was sorry to see Ms. Moore off the board. She seemed to have a load of common sense about her. Something USC, my alma mater, seems to be definitely lacking there of these days.
    It's not enough to simply tolerate the 2nd Amendment as an antiquated inconvenience. Caring for the 2nd Amendment means fighting to restore long lost rights.

    By the way, if you don't know it, Nikki is a huge Clemson fan. Do you suppose that has any bearing on Ms Moore being relieved of her duty as a USC board member and replaced with someone who contributed $4,500 to Nikki's election campaign? I'd be miffed too as much as Ms Moore gave to the school. I am sure there is more to the story.

    I watched a documentary years ago where an alphabet soup agent, can't remember which agency he was with, went waaaaay deep undercover with a biker gang in California. A few years into his assignment his mother passed away. Every member of the MC and every chapter reached out, sent condolences and sent flowers etc. The agency never even really acknowledged it and told him to "stay focused" on the case. He said he never questioned his loyalty to his job or the case until that moment and he realized how little his bosses cared about him and how much the so called evil criminals supported him and each other.

    That was Billy Queen, an ATF agent that infiltrated the Mongols.

    That is just another fail on the University. For $75,000,000 Darla Moore should have been given a University controlled spot on the BOT, not left in the Governor's appointed slot to be used as a political pawn for the next 'neck that won the position.

    Haley did what she was supposed to do with her slot. That USC was stupid enough to leave Moore's ass hanging in the breeze like that was just an almost unbelievable bonus...

    I can imagine it stings a little bit more when your own gets outshined by your bitter rival.

    We’re all on the same side when someone dies. I wouldnt feel good if it was Clemson who had failed to extend comfort and condolences instead of SC.

    I don’t blame her one bit for being pissed. She probably considered some of those people her friends. Regardless USC fucked up big time and the statement they put out in my opinion just made the situation even worse. Once again USC prove just what a fuck up they are.

    Should not have pissed off Mrs Moore

    $75 Million is a lot of freaking money and was used to establish one of the best business schools in the SE if not in the country

    Like it or not when somebody has $2.3 Billion You better be kissing his or her ass when they are gracious enough to donate to you

    Bet Dabo has her box suite at Death Valley, by the way where her Dad played football.

    Lets not get carried away. USC has a hell of an international business program going for it, but that’s about it. And it was great before she started giving them piles of cash

    Yes but her name, whether you like it or not, is one of the brightest business minds in the world. She took a small fortune and made her husbands family dirty raw rich Even cleaned up one of T Boone Picken’s financial screw ups and turned it around

    Just saying USuC should not piss her off , somebody with that kind of money and clout there is nothing you can do for them other than kiss their ass when you rely on huge donations.

    Still glad to know she has box suite at Death Valley, shows she knows true talent and success

    She wanted to be the USC President. The votes were there. She chose not to do it. They elected Caslen. She regretted her decision.

    Billy Joel had it right. "She'll carelessly cut you and laugh while you're bleeding, She's always a woman to me."

    Clemson, Good luck with that.
