In the 1960’s legendary film director Steven Spielberg applied to attend the film school at University of Southern California School of Theater, Film and Television two separate times, but was rejected. After becoming famous he was awarded an honorary degree in 1994, and in 1996 he became a trustee of the university. However it seems there is still some anger about the rejection. Spielberg was at USC speaking to a group of students when one inquisitive person asked him the following question:
Steven Spielberg was at #USC today. He was asked his favorite disaster movie and said, “The Washington State game.''

Even Spielberg thought the USC home loss on Sept. 7 to Washington State was an embarrassment. Wonder if he participated in the “Fire Kiffin” chant.
