Lane Kiffin has provided thousands of grist-words for this mill. Today he adds more, courtesy of Coaches Hot Seat.
USCw put on a pitiful performance yesterday in the Sun Bowl against Georgia Tech. For the few minutes that I watched, Tech played its typical brand of noncontact defense. In fact, at one point I saw a linebacker (or DB) close on a runner at the line of scrimmage and actually leap/dive over the oncoming running back in an apparent attempt to avoid contact. However, Kiffin managed to bring his very talented team to El Paso completely unprepared and with no interest in playing Georgia Tech.
USC fans are now ready to lynch both Kiffin and athletic director Pat Haden.
USC-alum: “In Pat Haden’s almost 60 years on his Earth Pat has NEVER been wrong about anything.”
Coaches Hot Seat: “You mean he won’t admit he was wrong about something.”
USC-alum: “No, I think Pat Haden believes he has NEVER been wrong about anything in his entire life.”
Coaches Hot Seat: “That seems to describe Lane Kiffin as well.”
USC-alum: “You just figured out something I have thought myself for awhile now. Pat Haden as the quarterback as USC was borderline arrogant and acted at times as if he was better than everyone else around him and if you take a look at how Kiffin has acted during his young coaching career it’s almost as if Kiffin and Haden were just alike at the same ages.”
Coaches Hot Seat: “So you think Haden sees himself in Kiffin at a younger age and Pat believes that Kiffin will mature into a good football coach and person eventually?”
USC-alum: “Exactly and remember if Pat Haden believes something then it must be true.”
Coaches Hot Seat: “That sounds like a Helluva mess you have going there at USC.”
USC-alum: “It’s worse than that. It’s two people in Pat Haden and Lane Kiffin that both believe they have NEVER been wrong about anything in their entire lives and people like that don’t really care if they destroy things because above all they must do everything possible to not reach a point or moment in their lives where they would have to admit they were wrong and thus why there is lots of turmoil and pain ahead for USC football in the coming years and it tears me up inside that Pat is going to allow of this to happen just to satisfy his massive ego and not have to admit he was wrong about Lane.”
Coaches Hot Seat: “Geez, what a future to look forward to for USC football fans.”
USC-alum: “Yes, it’s an F-ING disaster.”
The above conversation was over lunch in Brentwood, California just east of Santa Monica on Sunday BEFORE the disastrous and embarrassing performance by the USC Trojans football team in the Sun Bowl against Georgia Tech which was a game that we here at Coaches Hot Seat believe that the USC Trojans…
…before they even arrived at the stadium.
Yes, be proud Pat Haden.

USC junior wide receiver Robert Woods announced after Monday’s Sun Bowl that he would be foregoing his senior season to enter the NFL draft. The announcement came as no surprise for a few reasons. One, Woods had three big seasons for USC and had little left to accomplish in college. Two, he became a secondary option on the offense behind sophomore Marqise Lee, and he probably didn’t...
As it turns out, Matt Barkleys career as a USC Trojan is over. USC fans last glimpse of him in action is being helped off of the field at the Rose Bowl after suffering a shoulder injury on a hard hit from UCLA outside linebacker Anthony Barr.
When USC (7-5) takes the field on Monday in El Paso against Georgia Tech (6-7) in the Hyundai Sun Bowl, theyll do so without Barkley, it was...
Sebastian LaRue tweeted Wednesday afternoon that he has decommitted from Coach Lane Kiffin and the USC Trojans.
An official at the Hyundai Sun Bowl made a horrible call during the first quarter of the Hyundai Sun Bowl on New Year's Eve when a field goal attempt by USC Trojans kicker Andre Heidari was initially called good even though it was shanked wide left.
The official underneath the left goalpost was in the best position to make the call as to whether the USC field goal attempt...
The USC Trojans take on the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets on New Year’s Eve in the Hyundai Sun Bowl, the culmination of disappointing seasons for both squads. The 7-5 Trojans fell far, fast, after beginning the year as the preseason No. 1. Georgia Tech had to appeal for an NCAA waiver that would allow them to even go to a bowl this season after finishing with a losing record. The...
The Sun Bowl in El Paso got kind of boring in the fourth quarter with the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets easily handling the USC Trojans. To space up the Hyundai Sun Bowl, a guy decided to be fulling clothed and run through the middle of the field. Of course stadium security got to the guy quickly and he will probably spend some time in the drunk tank. Play was halted and the entire...
Tweet The USC Trojans finished the 2012 season with a 21-7 loss to Georgia Tech in Monday’s Hyundai Sun Bowl, leaving their record a disappointing 7-6 after being ranked No. 1 in the Associated Press preseason poll.
