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...
The idea that USC is losing because the 76th-85th guys on their roster don't have scholarship strains credulity, and the notion that teams like ASU, Utah St, Hawaii, Boston College, or WSU have a recruiting advantage over them is completely absurd.
Yep. Kiffin doesn't know how to coach. He has never had any success as a coach. USC's glaring weakness is QB and USC recruited 2 of them in 2011 that could of played anywhere in the nation, offers from all the top schools. Kiffin had them for 3 years, and they both stink.
ASU got a QB that only had 1 other college offer, and in 3 years he lead an offense to put up the most points on USC ever (?).
Its exciting as an ASU fan. If there is any program that deserves to lose in the PAC, its Arizona. Then USC
