Our number one ranked team may come as no surprise to many. The USC Trojans are just ending a two-year probation period where they weren’t allowed to play in the Pac 12 championship game or a bowl game. While it has had an affect on their depth, the Trojans are loaded and in the questionable Pac 12 they should do just fine.
Lane Kiffin is in his third season with the Trojans and he got pretty lucky when quarterback Matt Barkley decided to stay for his senior season. Barkley, a genuinely nice guy and quite a character, is expected to be the first pick in the draft next year. He’s had spectacular seasons leading up to this year and is poised to have a very big year for the Trojans in his final stand.
Kiffin did go out and find some depth at running back by bringing in Silas Redd from Penn State. You can’t blame Redd for leaving Happy Valley and heading to sunny California. Redd now has a chance to play for at least a Pac 12 championship. Barkley will also have a ...

Lane Kiffin will no longer allow opposing teams to have walk-throughs at the Coliseum. See what his reason is for making the move.

That got us thinking about this preseason at Reliant Stadium and whether the fan falling off the escalator was an isolated incident or are the fans possibly out of control. A few searches later and we’re watching Texans fans fighting USC fans during a 49ers game...
So much for Southern California hospitality.
Just in time for Norm Chows return to the Coliseum as Hawaiis head coach, USC Coach Lane Kiffin confirmed Thursday that USC would no longer make the stadium available to visiting teams for walk-throughs the day before games.
It shouldnt be a big deal, Kiffin said. We dont go to other peoples stadiums.
Schools customarily make their...

LOS ANGELES -- The Heisman campaign for USC quarterback Matt Barkley is alive and well, so let the talk for Marqise Lee ensue.
Barkley declared he returned to USC because he had "Unfinished Business," and he played like it. Barkley didn't disappoint completing 23 of 38 passes for 372 yards, and four touchdowns. He had 309 yards and three of those touchdowns were before...
A USC Trojan fan with too much time on his hands happened to make this Lane Kiffin-Mike Jones mash up video set to the song “Still Tipping.” The lyrics are hilarious. A sample includes:
Kiffin on 4 4s
Packing Rose Bowls
The title of course is “Still Kiffin.” I enjoyed it.

USC head coach Lane Kiffin addresses the media the last time prior to the Trojans' season opener on Saturday hosting Hawaii.
It was a typical post-practice meeting between USC head coach Lane Kiffin and his players on Sunday, but it had the most unusual ending - at least for one player, when Kiffin told walk-on punter Kyle Negrete that he didn't need to worry about buying books on Monday...

When South Carolina’s quarterback Connor Shaw injured his shoulder, forcing him into the locker room, the Gamecocks were more than allowed to feel a little fear. But any worry that Shaw might have created for the Gamecock faithful disappeared as a result of the performance Marcus Lattimore was putting on against Vanderbilt on college football’s opening night...
