Also speaking as a fan who knows a bit more about the team than some of you casual haters...observers...the problem for USC was not Lane Kiffin, it was the over the top sanctions which have crippled the team for the past three seasons and created paper thin depth. Even with those challenges, they were finding ways to win. But as the games /season wore on...injuries would mount, and the players would get fatigued and worn out.
Kiffin isn't without his faults, but he was being asked to be a miracle worker and had limited resources to work with.
USC fired him because key recruits said they were concerned about him...which is the wrong reason to fire him. Every weekend USC lines up across from a team with recruiting advantage and more depth than them...
