Apparently Lane Kiffin and the Trojans decided to skip out on the Sun Bowl dinner, named the Sheriff’s Posse Dinner, with Georgia Tech that is set up to bring the two teams together before they meet on the field. Sun Bowl organizers can’t be too happy with this, but should we expect anything more from Kiffin? If the Yellow Jackets win … karma. Bad form #USC. Hour late for Sheriff’s Posse Dinner. #GaTech coach Paul Johnson took team & left. Can’t blame him. twitter.com/dukekeith/stat… — Duke Keith (@dukekeith) December 27, 2012 Earlier in the day, Kiffin wore a sombrero. The Trojans have arrived in El Paso. Yup, that is Lane Kiffin sporting a sombrero. #USC #SunBowl twitter.com/USC_Athletics/… — USC Trojans (@USC_Athletics) December 26, 2012 It’s possible USC may have skipped the dinner because they are used to the LA lifestyle and Elpaso just can’t quite compare.
