The State of Troy, the state of the entire USC Trojans Athletics Department since the shutdown of the entire spring sport calendar, has been recently addressed by Athletic Director Mike Bohn.

Speaking just last week, Bohn addressed Trojans Nation, speaking with USC’s Jordan Moore, hitting on such topics such as the developments during the coronavirus pandemic. Bohn also spoke on Clay Helton and the Trojans football team’s recent hot streak in football recruiting, as well as their initiative to ‘take back the West.’

Bohn also speaks on something particularly interesting, the commitment to keeping all of USC’s 21 sports teams. That’s something that likely hasn’t been addressed at the time, but thinking about it more, even major universities like USC are not immune to the possibility of a sport shutdown. Cincinnati shut down their men’s soccer team almost instantly during the spring sports shutdown but Bohn seems completely committed to keeping all 21 athletic programs intact.

Bohn also spoke about the we FIGHT as ONE campaign, the Pac-12/Power-5 cooperation, contingency plans and much, much more in his State of Troy address. Here’s the link to the full COVID-19 crisis discussion as well as the other happenings in the world of USC Athletics.
