Lane Kiffin admitted today USC is better prepared to face Notre Dame’s offense than a spread team.
“That’s no secret,” Kiffin said. “Over the course of time here, the last three years, we’ve played much better vs. traditional teams.”
This comment seems to only bolster speculation that defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin will not return next season.
There should also be some examination of what defense’s trouble USC? The offense produced 14 points against Stanford and 21 against UCLA (one touchdown was scored by the defense).
That is simply not enough points to win every week in the Pac-12.
