Give 'em Hell, Devils
She's not Jerry Buss' wife. She's his daughter. Jerry died in 2013. Jeanie dated Phil Jackson for many years. She holds a 1/6 interest in the Lakers, as do each of her siblings, but she's the one who is in charge.Good ending. One things I found interesting. When each school got the rah rah from a famous person, Columbia got theirs from Madeline Albright, a former Secretary of State. USC got theirs from Jerry Buss's trophy wife. He's the owner of the Lakers. I guess that says a lot about each of these schools.
And it's kind of ridiculous for you to assume that's the best USC could muster. I'm sure USC has hundreds of celebrity alums that would be more recognizable than Jeanie Buss. I think the fact that they got her probably says more about the lack of clout of the show than it does about the school.
