That Lane Kiffin, he's got some (deflated) balls

Southern California: In the matter of the curiously, and criminally (in terms of NCAA rules) deflated footballs and coach with the over-inflated sense of self, the question is not whether we can believe Lane Kiffin – we already know that we cannot – but whether we should here.

USC defense hoping to bounce back vs. Arizona St.

Column: Who took the wind out of Kiffin's sails?

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By JIM LITKE AP Sports Columnist School officials at Southern California fired a student manager after he admitted taking the air out of some footballs before last week's home game against Oregon.
