At one point, despite not having a lot of recruits due to NCAA-sanctioned scholarship reductions, some recruiting services had ranked USC's class #1 due to the high quality of its players.
Today, former commit DE Jason Hatcher verbaled to Kentucky while CB Jalen Ramsey flipped to FSU. In the past month or so, the Trojans lost Safety Max Redfield, WR Sebastian LaRue, DT Eddie Vanderdoes, and DE Kylie Fitts. That's at least six defections, all 4-stars or 5-stars.
Kiffin's now down to 12 commitments. The silver lining for USC is seven of them are early enrollees.
haha, i think they lost more 5* than any other school has!
No sympathy whatsoever for those assholes.
now if Ty Isaac would just bolt
"Any board that would ban 3yds is worthless"
This is the one...
The bottom line is that there was SOMETHING to that fight in the locker room after the loss to Ga tech. USC and Kiffin can down play it all they want, but there are cancers in the locker room starting with the head coach. Lane has lost control of this team and everyone knows it which is the kiss of death for ANY coach!!
These recruits know for sure that Kiffin is an ass and wasn't the guy they thought that he was. He's an ass and until he's gone, USC will not return to the top. Kiffin has got to go, so commence with his firing in 5....4....3...2...1.
Pat Hayden has got to know that Kiffin isn't the right guy for the job and that he should have ushered young kiffin out right along with his
old ass daddy!!

BuckNasty is all about The Buckeyes!!!
And go where? To C-Bus?
Shit...if he ain't planning to wear S&G, who really gives a damn?
Not me. Let him stay in SoCal and lose +5 games, see what I care.
Hell, if wants to lose 5 more, let him go to Ann Arbor. There's another 5 losses waiting to happen!!!
There's a changing of the guard in Los Angeles. UCLA under Jim Mora beat USC on the field and now they're beating them in recruits' living rooms. If Kiffin doesn't find a way to right the ship, his days are definitely numbered.
BTW, speaking of locker room fights, has anyone ever heard about one in Ohio State's locker room prior to getting hammered by Florida in the 2006 national championship game? Someone told me they'd heard a rumor that the underclassmen were pissed at the seniors for taking it easy during the break...
Is Vanderdoes for sure not going there? I thought I read he was still considering them. He's an absolute monster. Even with only 12 recruits, they still have a top 10-15 class. They have more 5 stars than the entire B1G combined.
Karma is catching up to Kiffin. He and USC need to just deal with it. USC knew what they were hiring.
He was committed, then decommitted. He's supposedly still considering USC, along with UCLA, Washington, Notre Dame and Alabama.
Seven of Rivals eight "experts" are predicting he'll go to UCLA. The 8th has him going to ND.
The National Football Recruiting Authority
Let him stay as far from AA as possible
Kiffin screwed the one kid, forgot his name, that was going to enroll early and found out the day before his scholly was pulled for another recruit.
Kids hear this stuff; bad press travels fast.
USC is done, it's an insult to Pete Carroll for Kiffins name to e mentioned in the same sentence.
Carroll had a historic run; Kiffin is mediocre.
"man we got some fuckin weirdos on this site." - Davebucknut 9/5/13 post of the year
Kiffin is a "jack off" and shouldn't even be a head coach at the youth level.
He will get fired soon!
4-star DE Kylie Fitts, which the Rivals guys unanimously are predicting is going to UCLA.
If he does, the first time he sacks Max Browne, he should look over at the USC sideline and yell, "Hey, Kiffin...
247 is listing Fitts as a Bruin commit. To get both he and EV, would definitely shift the balance of power in SoCal. That conf could really have a makeover at the top in the next few years with Oregon and SC taking a back seat to UCLA, Stanford, and maybe Arizona.
So is Scout. Can you imagine UCLA's DL with Vanderdoes and Ellis McCarthy? That's the top 2 DTs over the past two years.
I pretty sure the fight in osu locker room was between Troy smith and Gonzales because Troy was banging Gonzales girlfriend ... That's What I remember hearing.....
BYE BYE Lamie Sniffin . Maybe Daddy can get you another job?
This was just a matter of time before the real Lamie surfaced but I am surprised it took soo long.
Things are really tough when your own dad doesn't want to work with you.
Kylie Fitts signed with UCLA. Isaac Savaiinaea, ESPN's #4 MLB, and Asiantii Woulard, ESPN's #1 dual threat QB, both committed and signed with the Bruins today.
Eddie Vanderdoes will make his decision at 8 p.m. ET.
UCLA already beat USC on the field this past season. What if the Bruins follow that up by beating the Trojans on national signing day? Will that mean
Woulard is a big commit for them. He was a guy who shot up the rankings after he'd already commited to USF? early. Priest Willis is waiting to sign though. That sounds odd. I've always thought UCLA was a sleeping giant waiting to emerge. This could be their time. Amazing the diff a coach makes. Now they have to hope he doesn't want to go back to the League in a few years.
This is great...Kiffen is really showing USC what a crappy job they did in hiring him. A school with the history and stature of USC really pulled a boner on this one, very puzzling.
There was something not right at all.....
We came out of the locker room so flat....no emotion or energy what so ever.
I took it to be a bad omen....that and the gang tackling of Ginn in the endzone.......confident, disciplined teams don't do that!
Kiffin is a 1st rate clown....with absolutely zero on his resume to have been named the head coach at premier programs like Tennessee and USC!
The people who hired this a$$ bag are even bigger clowns.....
Tennessee did it too!! Don't understand what either program saw in him.
That clown was hired by the Raiders along with both Tennessee and USC without ever doing anything to justify those hires. I would love to see UCLA gain status with California recruits at USC's expense.
THere could be more imploding as the competition gets higher in the Pac-12. UCLA's resurgence, Stanford being a major factor, and if Oregon can keep up some of what they've been doing will make it difficult for USC to dominate like they did during the Carroll days when there was no comp.
