Last year was pretty disappointing for the USC Trojans — in fact, USC was the first team ever to begin ranked #1 in the Preseason AP Poll and finish unranked — ouch. Part of the problem was that there were far too many distractions — and now Lane Kiffin is looking to crack down. Today, he announced that he will close off all fall practices from the media, which should allow his team to focus: Lane Kiffin has announced #USC is closing practices this season. — Lindsey Thiry (@LindseyThiry) July 29, 2013 The end of an era. Lane Kiffin says #USC will close practices this fall. Players/coaches still available after for interviews. — Ryan Abraham (@insidetroy) July 29, 2013 Kiffin said spring ball and fall camp is open. But game weeks practices are closed. #USC — Ryan Abraham (@insidetroy) July 29, 2013 Lane Kiffin has already been under fire from the media for quite a few things in his coaching career, so I’m not sure if this move is going to help his cause with many writers.
PLAYERS: Lane Kiffin
TEAMS: USC Trojans
