LOS ANGELES --- Lane Kiffin has been on a search for balance this season but so far hes had a tough time incorporating his two 1,000-yard running backs, Curtis McNeal and Silas Redd.
No. 13 USC is ranked 93rd in the country among FBS schools in rushing, averaging 121.7 yards a game. Of the 196 total plays run by the offense in the first three games, just 84 of those have been running plays, which is a surprise when you consider Lane Kiffin runs a pro-style offense.
When asked if he was surprised the running game wasnt a bigger part of the offense, McNeal answered directly.
No, the USC running back said. I expected it.
When you have (a) big-time quarterback (and) big-time receivers, I mean, you have to expect that.
The Trojans had a season-high 258 yards on the ground in the win against Syracuse. Redd went over 100 yards for the first time in a game as a Trojan. Although it appeared balance was restored, the view was somewhat jaded because 99 of those yards came on end arounds b...
BEST OF MAXIM
LOS ANGELES --- While addressing the media at Wednesdays practice, USC head coach Lane Kiffin said that his team was back on track.
The Trojans third year head coach then took a step back back into last week. He stepped off of his padded box and returned to practice.
I gotta go, Kiffin said.
His meeting with the media lasted all of 28 seconds. Kiffin apparently took exception...
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...
USC Coach Lane Kiffin spoke with media following Wednesday’s practice in Los Angeles, and he didn’t ramble on at all. When asked about a specific player’s participation in practice, Kiffin simply responded “I don’t know” and then exited stage left. 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...
Southern California coach Lane Kiffin's latest media session lasted considerably longer than 29 seconds.
A day after Kiffin cut short his talk with reporters when he became irritated by a question involving an injured player, the 13th-ranked Trojans' coach answered all questions for nearly seven minutes Thursday.
Kiffin got upset Wednesday when his second question indirectly...
USC’s Lane Kiffin is a great interview. Here he is after Wednesday’s practice answering a few questions, well, not answering them.
Kiffin seemed to get a little agitated when asked about a certain players participation in practice regarding an injury and abruptly ended the press conference with “I gotta go”.
Kiffin’s press conference skills are bordering on Brady-esque...
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...
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.
Kiffin took questions following practice. Ok..well, actually he only took one of them before looking away and leaving.
Total Presser Time :28 seconds.
He already had endeared himself to the L.A media last...
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...
USC Coach Lane Kiffin holds his routine post-practice press conference...but it ended up being anything but routine.
USC Coach Lane Kiffin opened the competition at left tackle this week at practice between Aundrey Walker and Max Tuerk. Kiffin said no decision had been made come Thursday, but that both players responded to the challenge.
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. Unfortunately for the home town Bulls, Buffalo didn't have a prayer for the rest of the game with Buffalo going just 3-for-13 on third...
LOS ANGELES, Calif., - Silas Redd and the USC Trojans will look to get back on track against the Cal Bears at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum this Saturday. Look inside for photos from Wednesday's practice.
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...
