Lane Kiffin donning a sombrero. Like a strip-club line item on an expense report, it was one of those beautiful, iconic images that have come to define bowl season. Hours later, it all came crashing down. Whatever goodwill the Trojans had built up on their holiday trip to the Sun Bowl courtesy of Kiffin’s hat dance was gone in the span of 90 minutes. Must be #Hyundai #Sunbowl time...Here at #SunlandPark for Sheriff's Posse dinner as Old & Ugly rocks. #USC #GaTech twitter.com/dukekeith/stat… — Duke Keith (@dukekeith) December 27, 2012 An hour and a half of a half-empty “Sheriff’s Posse” shindig. An hour and a half of legendary El Paso house band Old & Ugly jamming for a sparsely crowded event center. An hour and a half of Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets eating in near silence. 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 An hour and a half of Paul Johnson fuming. Well, at least USC’s players are enjoying themselves: Out here in El Paso. ****** city but glad I can enjoy this moment wit the USC family — Leonard Williams (@LWtrojan94) December 27, 2012 On the bright side, if the Trojans were disappointed with their bowl invitation this year, they probably won't be invited back any time soon.
