Yesterday we reported on the rumor that was circulating on the USC Trojans players being involved in a wild brawl between themselves following their embarrassing Sun Bowl loss to Georgia Tech.
Southern Cal head coach Lane Kiffin is now disputing that claim, saying that “his players argued with each other after the loss, but no punches were thrown,” via College Football Talk.
“Contrary to media reports, there was not a brawl or altercation in our locker room after the Sun Bowl,” the statement from Kiffin began. “There was a noisy verbal exchange among a couple players who were frustrated with the outcome of the game. It lasted less than a minute and was nothing physical.”
“It happens sometimes in football locker rooms after a disappointing loss.”
Lane can deem the situation what he wants, but he better get control of his team now, because another lack luster season will leave him out of a job, and I’m not sure he’ll get another one.

USC head coach Lane Kiffin has selected Clancy Pendergast to become the Trojans' defensive coordinator, a person familiar with the situation said Thursday.
Pendergast's hiring could be formalized in the next few days after the school completes a background check, said the individual, who requested anonymity because the hiring is not yet official.
Even though conference play has just begun, the college basketball coaching carousel is already in motion. After going 45-61 with only one NCAA Tournament appearance in four years, USC fired coach Kevin O’Neil after yet another slow star for the Trojans.
