No walkoff for Kiffin on Thursday

LOS ANGELES --- Similar to Wednesday, USC head coach Lane Kiffin appeared to be in a jovial mood. As practice was winding down, he returned to his platform placed just in front of a USC backdrop and playfully mentioned the event that has put him and the USC football team in the national spotlight once again in the last 24 hours. Lets see if we can make it past a minute today, Kiffin...

Lane Kiffin’s Wednesday Media Session Was Very Short And Not So Sweet

USC Coach Lane Kiffin spoke with media following Wednesday’s practice in Los Angeles, and he didn’t ramble on at all.

I’m not sure what set Lane off so quickly, but it is safe to say that following USC’s loss to Stanford last week he...

USC's Kiffin gets back to normal media session

Barkley keeps USC's focus on Cal, not rankings

Lane Kiffin still same jerk as before

To say that Lane Kiffin's reputation preceded him when he left the University of Tennessee in 2010 to become the head coach at Southern Cal would be quite the understatement. When Kiffin ditched the Vols one 7-6 football season, after Al Davis and the Raiders unceremoniously booted him out of Oakland following a 5-15 stint in the NFL, he did so in a blaze of indignity, scurrying...

Lane Kiffin with shortest press conference ever

Well, not really, but it wasn't too far from that. Coach Kiffykins, a perennial favorite of Sports Bloggers world wide kind of outdid himself Wednesday morning.

He already had endeared himself to the L.A media last...

Lane Kiffin cuts press conference very short after injury question (Video)

Writers and reporters learned a valuable lesson after USC’s practice on Wednesday — ask a question about a specific player’s injury and the fun ends for everyone. As you can see from the video above that Lindsey Thiry of FOX Sports shared on Twitter, the first question asked to Lane Kiffin during his media session Wednesday was also the last. Thiry mentioned on Twitter that...

Morning Playbook - Kent State wins, Kiffin leaves early and Louisiana Tech players are sexy ...

Kent State 23, Buffalo 7 (AP Recap) - It was not the most MACtion-packed weeknight game we have seen but it did offer up some good moments, including a successful Hail Mary touchdown from Buffalo to close out the first half of the game.

USC still shocked by 1st loss, but moving on

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Three days after Southern California's comeback season got derailed at Stanford, the 13th-ranked Trojans still can't quite believe how quickly their imperfections were exposed.

The Dirty Dozen and Bottom of the Barrel: USC got beat by a Tree

Well, hopefully you are still with us as we enter week number 3. Because this is college football, there are always upsets, and last week proved that when Stanford beat USC. Now mind you Stanford didn't have Andrew Luck or any of the other graduates who went on to play in the NFL or running corporations, but they still won. We think it's because ESPN picked USC to win...
