    Being a Pastor, this is also true of some church members...seems to be afflicting a lot of people and just not jerk coaches.

    IMO Pat Haden is not the type AD who will put up with much more of Kiffen's crap. Another underachieving year or post probation and Kiffin will be headed to Dallas as HC.

    Final score: Alabama 28, SMU 7

    That was the first Alabama game I attended. I was in the Army stationed at Ft. Bliss with the 3rd ACR.My seat was behind the SMU band and I got to listen to we want Boston College because Alabama was not good enough to be on the field with SMU. After halftime show I had to tell the tuba player "I bet yall really wish yall were playing Boston College because we're beating the crap out of yall.I hate SMU to this day for that very reason.RTR

    Obviously, the head coach gets the blunt of the criticism. However, does the bowl not have a rep with the team to make sure they are on time? Or does USC not have a Director of Football Operations to tell Kiffykens to get on the bus?

    And the update in the article says this:

    (UPDATE: Here is the explanation from USCFootball.com on the dinner faux pas: The Trojans said they were only a half hour late, bowl officials knew the whole time, Georgia Tech actually left 75 minutes before it was supposed to, and therefore USC deserves no blame. "It wasn't a problem for anybody," USC Sports Information Director Tim Tessalone said Thursday to the site. "No one was upset.")
    So Georgia Tech leaves 75 minutes early? How long are they supposed to be at these events?

    Or USC can tie us, and Alabama takes the lead back on January 7.

    So Georgia Tech leaves 75 minutes early? How long are they supposed to be at these events?
    How can USC only be 30 minutes late, but Georgia Tech leave 75 minutes before they are supposed to? Wouldn't that make GT leaving 45 minutes before the event even starts? If Georgia Tech LEFT 45 minutes early, then how early did they ARRIVE? None of this makes sense. It sounds like USC is desperate for damage control, but IMO they are failing miserably.

    That's what caught my attention. The updated excuse is every bit as pitiful as not showing up in the first place.

    It's kind of like watching an alternate reality where Kiffen just keeps getting rewarded for juvenile behavior.

    I expect Karma's Perfect Storm to finally intervene.

    She does eventually win, doesn't she? She sometimes takes her own sweet time getting to it, but it's always a matter of when, not if.

    Remember when Miami dressed in Camo and then walked out of a seated dinner with Penn State?
