Lane Kiffin selling Manhattan Beach mansion for $7 million

Thursday, December 5th, 2013

Former USC head football coach Lane Kiffin was dumped by the school back in late September for his team's poor performance and his awful decision-making. But at least Kiffin can fall back on the fact that his decision-making when buying a house was fantastic. Kiffin's 19,246 square foot house in Manhattan ...

USC will consider Ed Orgeron for head coach position

Friday, October 11th, 2013

After leading USC to a 38-31 win over Arizona Thursday night and radically changing the atmosphere around the school's football program in just 12 days, it appears interim head coach Ed Orgeron is, indeed, auditioning for the full-time job. After Thursday's win, USC athletic director Pat Haden said he would ...

Bob Stoops meets The Dude (a dramatization)

Friday, June 21st, 2013

Bob Stoops returned to his home Wednesday to learn that someone had broken into it and stolen his car in the middle of the night. We took the liberty of imagining what the hunt for his missing vehicle might look like -- and it bears a remarkable resemblance to the plot ...

Matt Barkley’s college career is over thanks to shoulder injury

Thursday, December 27th, 2012

USC head football coach Lane Kiffin confirmed what many suspected on Thursday, as he announced that quarterback Matt Barkley would not be playing in the 2012 Sun Bowl thanks to an injured throwing shoulder. That announcement means that Barkley's storied, record-shattering collegiate career is now over. It's a disappointment for USC ...

USC Trojans: Pat Haden gives Lane Kiffin the oddest endorsement of the season

Friday, November 2nd, 2012

Less than a week ago, I mused about whether USC head coach Lane Kiffin's job was in trouble after their debacle at Arizona last Saturday. The loss was an ugly one that knocked the Trojans out of contention for anything but the Pac-12 title and maybe an at-large BCS berth ...

USC Trojans: Could Kiffin be fired?

Sunday, October 28th, 2012

I know, I know, it's such a knee-jerk thing to say, and normally this is a rhetorical device in which I would set about disproving that this is a knee-jerk thing to say. Instead, I'll just embrace it. The USC 39-36 loss to Arizona on Saturday was nothing short of ...

Seantrel Henderson: Miami Tackle Running Out of Chances

Thursday, August 23rd, 2012

The USC Trojans' overly-harsh punishment from the NCAA may have actually done the program at least one small favor. Offensive tackle prospect Seantrel Henderson had originally chosen the Trojans and signed a letter of intent to play football for Lane Kiffin. He was supposed to be the marquee signing for ...

Kiffin Versus The Coaches’ Poll: Why It’s Happening At All

Saturday, August 11th, 2012

I have a few theories as to why Lane Kiffin would get himself into this easily avoidable kerfuffle about the USA Today Coaches' Poll. Kiffin somehow managed to say he wouldn't vote for his own team to be number one in the initial poll, voted for them anyway, got called out by ...
