There’s one thing that’s very clear in Lane Kiffin‘s career, the USC head coach has no interest in making friends.
Kiffin and his USC Trojans stood up Paul Johnson and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at a Sun Bowl dinner, according to Duke Keith of the El Paso Times. According to Keith’s tweets, the dinner was at the Sunland Park Racetrack & Casino in Sunland Park, N.M.
Sunland Park is almost seven miles from El Paso, Texas, where Kiffin was spotted wearing a sombrero — that picture was tweeted at 2:34 p.m. Georgia Tech left after one hour without the Trojans showing up, Keith tweeted at 9:36 p.m.
USC players Jabari Ruffin and Scott Starr both tweeted they could see Mexico as they were driving around 10:40 p.m. After having National Championship hopes, it’s not surprising that USC wouldn’t take the Sun Bowl very seriously, if this was indeed intentional.
