Lane Kiffin could not escape the noise. After USCs 22-13 loss to Notre Dame on Saturday night, cheers and other boisterous shouts from the Fighting Irish locker room reverberated through the walls during Kiffin's postgame news conference. Later, when Kiffin was readying to leave the stadium in his car, Notre Dames massive equipment truck sat nearby idling and rumbling in the Coliseum tunnel. Then, of course, there was the sound of USC fans, screaming for Kiffins head after the Trojans finished the regular season by losing four of their last five games to end up 7-5. The loss to Notre Dame, coming a week after a loss to UCLA, marked the first time since 1995 that the Trojans were swept by their rivals. After the UCLA loss, USC Athletic Director Pat Haden told Bill Plaschke of The Times: Lane is my head coach, 150, now and hopefully for a long time. Asked late Saturday if the situation was the same after the Notre Dame loss, Kiffin said, Yes. And I'm saying we've got...

  • Really!!?!?!! You've got to be kidding me!!! I've been a lifelong USC Fan. I'm 42 years old, and I actually have supported Kiffin since he took over. I've hated his dad as a coordinator since day 1, as he's terrible. BUT now, after Saturday, what an absolute disaster as an offensive coordinator. He blew that game, and his future. He should be gone, after losing the last five contests. He has ruined his reputation, and that of the University. If he isn't fired, Haden should walk.
  • abnada, let me tell you since you're only 42. SC under John McKay and John Robinson had the same talent that Kiffin and Carroll have had. The difference is the players under McKay and Robinson weren't arrogant, unsportsmanlike jerks. If the SC players spent as much time being good, smart football players instead of acting like trash talking, gangstas they might actually win more games.
    And that culture came from Carroll and persists under Kiffin. I watch 5-6 games every week, including great teams like Alabama, Oregon, Ohio St, Oklahoma, Stanford and nobody, absolutely nobody acts like SC. They are the U of Miami thugs of the 2000's era.

Notre Dame’s goal-line stand for the ages was also a colossal USC failure

Notre Dame is back on top of the football world, and they can thanks some friendly calls from the officials in the Pitt and Stanford games for helping them get there.

Real quick on Lane Kiffin, the atrocious decision maker

So, let me get this straight… USC — specifically AD Pat Haden — is bringing back next season a football coach who, despite the wealth of talent the storied SC football program attracts, has accumulated a decidedly mediocre 7-5 record this season; who, even with the enviable offensive weapons he has at his disposal, couldn’t figure out how to get in the end zone in four chances...

Lane Kiffin cost USC the game, not Max Wittek

Lane Kiffin’s play calling at the end of the USC vs Notre Dame game was absolutely atrocious. USC was down by one score with 5:58 left in the 4th quarter and a shot to beat the number 1 Irish. Kiffin started the drive with a great pass from first start freshman Max Wittek to Marqise Lee for 53 yards to the Notre Dame 2 yardline, that’s right, THE TWO. USC then committed a false...
