    wow. I knew it was just a matter of time, but that's sooner than I expected.

    Re: USC fires Kiffin

    And don't get me wrong, I think he's a dumb-*** and a bad coach, but the scholly limits they're under really put a limit on their depth. During the game last night, they were talking about how all the starters basically play the whole game, even on special teams, because they just don't have the depth. That's a tough situation for any coach. That said, I'm not losing a lot of sleep over Lane's departure.

    Re: USC fires Kiffin

    Reporter Shelley Smith just said "Recruits are dropping like flies."

    She also stated that people were calling for Haden to be fired, so maybe it was a CYA move.

    "Staff was grumbling about playcalling, if he's going to be calling plays, he should be in the booth. "

    Sad part is Kiffin will be coaching again soon. Somebody will give him another chance! He is not a very good coach and it showed with the talent he has had.

    True.... But sadly USC seemed to get a rougher punishment from the NCAA than did pedo state.

    Glad to hear this. Kiffin is a first class d-bag.

    He's a total d-bag but I can't imagine anyone succeeding under those circumstances. That said, it seems everyone knew that going in, except Lane Kiffin apparently.
