    USC Team Manager fired for deflating footballs for the USC/Oregon game

    Not that it matters because the game was a flag football game (62-51), the USC team manager got fired for deflating the balls below the regs:

    This is just my opinion, but that trick has Lame Kiffin written all over it. It's right up there with changing player numbers.

    I can't help to chuckle a little at all of the people here and elsewhere that were saying "Well, Kiffin has proved to be a good coach!" and "USC is going to a force this year!" before the season. Kiffin is the same overrated punk that he's always been. He has still yet to do anything to deserve the job opportunities he's been handed.

    He just knows where the bodies are buried or he signed an unholy agreement with a guy with a pitchfork and horns. That is the only explanation for how Lame keeps landing on his feet.

    USC said no coaches, players, staffers or administrators had any knowledge of the manager's actions...
    Sure. I bet this manager just thought of this all by himself.

    Agree, I just don't see him doing this himself. What would he gain from it? He knew if he got caught, he would be fired. Sucks to be the fall guy.

    This is a prime example of the kind of stuff you can expect from a Lane Kiffin team. The philosophy that a team takes on the personality of the head coach holds true, Lane has a very sneaky, reckless personality. You are supposed to grow out of the rich Fraternity boy persona to that of a gentleman in your 30's, but he hasn't. It was very important for USC to have momentum going into the sanctions, but they may end up the biggest preseason #1 flop of all-time. The momentum is dead, and reality has set in. PROBATION.

    Being a football coach is just a job, like any other job. When it comes to jobs, the most important thing you are going to have going for you is either 1) who you know, or 2) who you are (as in being related to the boss or having name recognition). Just ask the Kennedy's.

    I can't stand the guy at all, but he's a very good coach and recruiter. The problem is that USC is so depth deprived and has no elite talent on defense like years past. He'll have USC in contention in the future. That being said, he's slimy as they come.
