Hatcher Decommited. Rumors that Ramsey will.
The big dt van halen appears headed elsewhere.
Kiffen is toast.
USC will blow goats until he is replaced and sanctions end.
Kiffen has had disastrous stops at 3 legendary programs before 40 he is
Everyone seemed to think that Kiffen kept USC above the impact of the sanctions via recruiting. But you can still miss on your evaluations of kids and have injuries. That turns into holes in the lineup when you are that thin, which leads to losses. Once you start losing, the top recruits start to bail on you. Kiffen started from a better place than most schools, but he can't escape the effects of the sanctions.
His biggest failure is his inability to escape stupidity, arrogance, and lack of good coaching ability.
couldn't have said it better myself.
Sarah sorry about the Herpes.
Where Are they rumored to be heading?
Hatcher Louisville? Strong just signed an 8 year extension.
rooting for USC to just do well enough for them to keep Kiffen ...but no better.
they can stock pile all the talent they want ...but have no fear - do not believe he can deliver any postseason success for them.
I think Lane will continue to attract top recruits because I believe he has hookers waiting for these kids on their official visits and really high end hookers when they sign their NLOI
After another crap bowl loss all the hookers is southern California wont be enough. Lane Kiffin sucks. hes hated by USC alums and fans
LOL at USC ! They hire Kiffin who's biggest track record is committing infractions and were everybody's #1-2 ranked team preseason...get embarrassed in the bowl game in finishing something like 7-6...
One of their biggest holes is Aundrey Walker. Saw a scout's take of his performance where it questioned how someone so bad could be on a USC roster, let alone get playing time. Impossible to fathom he was starting. That's a hole.
Kiffen wasn't dealing with any sanctions this year. This was going to be the first year they started dropping scholarships. I think recruits took a look and said to themselves, "If this is what they look like with a full roster, what is it going to be like when we only have 75 guys?". I always thought it was idiotic of USC to take the bowl bans while not taking the loss of roster spots. Kiffen stunk all on his own this year. It will only get worse with him as the head coach. Guy was born on third base and acts like he hit a triple.
"Guy was born on third base and acts like he hit a triple."
I like that quote and will repeat it in life. Thanks.
I stole it from somewhere else so feel free:)
What prestigeous award has he won to even get an interview with USC. What were they thinking when they hired him.
I'm beginning to believe all USC's problems start with the AD. Not the Head coaches.
Vanderdoes and Fitts, their former committed big time D line recruits will now be headed to UCLA and Coach Mora from what one hears. TFF.
hayden is new, and will clean things up entirely
their old AD got them into hot water when he thumbed his nose at the NCAA
He's pathetic. He (Haden) showed up at Vanderdoes' sister's basketball game. She's a FR in HS. Lane Violation is trying to arrange for an earmarked scholarship for her just because he cares. No strings attached, I'm sure. LOL The condoms are a desperate and pathetic bunch over there who are VERY scared about what the future holds for their program.
Hopefully this ends the debate on how USC recruits itself.
I think everyone knows that extentions on college coaches don't mean a damn thing. Charlie would leave if a top job was offered to him. Ramsey is looking at the Florida schools. Mainly just Florida and Florida St and rumors are Florida st is the favorite right now.
They weren't thinking when they hired him--Mike Garrett was the A.D. then, and did the hiring. I do not see Pat Haden sticking very long with Kiffen--their personalities seem like oil and water, plus Haden has accomplished quite a bit in life, and we know what Kiffen has accomplished. I'm sure he's not impressed with Kiffen personally or professionally. Once the program is fully done with the scholarship reductions (maybe they already are--I haven't followed it closely) and a decent interval passes, I expect Kiffen will be flushed from the program. I'm sure Haden has already identified replacement targets.
I'd like to see UCLA get back to premier status--no reason they shouldn't be able to recruit just as well as SC, and bring some balance of competition out there. Mora seemed to do a pretty good job last year. I was never impressed with Neuheisel--always acted like a spoiled kid--he and Kiffen would be quite a pair--too bad they couldn't be forced to be roommates.
