    I just have a hard time seeing how he managed to F-up a team with that much talent. He clearly can't motivate them either; for the second straight year, the Oregon game has been the only one where USC players actually look like they're stoked to be there.

    I will give you the recruiting part, but as for being a good coach, I'll disagree. He may be a good play caller, but being a good coach entails something greater than just calling plays. First of all, a coach is supposed to set the example of the right thing to do. I think his slimy ways are setting the wrong example. Secondly, good coaches improve the program. I can't see how he has improved the football program as a whole. No better record. Doing illegal things.
    He has a great recruiting class right now despite the sanctions, but I don't think he will develop them. He'll suffer the same problem Auburn and Tennessee is having. Bring in low character kids and instill no discipline. Kids will end up flunking out, in jail, or even dead. Hate to say it.

    Yeah I'm sure Barkley's small girly hands likes the softer balls.

    Can't imagine Barkley wouldn't recognize the ball was deflated the minute he held it.

    Break out the sentence-diagramming skills for this quote from Lame about it: "That was a distraction that nobody here knew about." It's like he's a Les Miles wannabe in pressers.

    Lane K: "So, how did our balls feel to you?"

    NCAA official: "They're way too soft."

    Monte K: "Them balls ain't soft. He took after his old man."

    NCAA official: "You don't want me to play hardball, coach."

    Lane K: "C'mon. I don't think there's anything wrong with our balls. Feel them again."

    Monte K: "Calm down son. This guy seems like he's going to be a tough nut to crack."
