    Obviously, we’ve got a guy here who believes he could do anything and everything all by himself. There’s one thing he’s got plenty of, and it sure isn’t real coaching talent or capability. That’s for sure. LOL!!!

    With Kiffin stubbornly maintaining his OC-playcalling responsibilities, whoever he hires as the DC will in effect, be holding Kiffin’s walking papers after next season. You better hire someone good Lane ‘ol buddy, pay that coach a good salary (even some of your salary).

      Do you think Walker returns to SC?

        It is obvious some of the talent on this team did not respond on the field this season. Was it the fault of the coaching staff, the players or both that has put this program “on the fence” as to its shakey future. You can’t drop a bunch of players from a program and survive. You can replace coaches much easier hoping that will resolve the issue. But better coaches will look at the state of the program and its talent before leaving what they have currently. For Walker, that would mean leaving a head coaching job. NSD for Kiffin will be huge, I think.

          Won’t it take a year for the players to learn a new system? Kiffin doesn’t have a year to waste.

            Like I said, whoever Kiffin hires, will determine his future at USC, especially now that we have seen Kiffin’s offense will not always outscore the opponent. I can see kiffin on his hands & knees begging some defensive specialist to come bail him out… Can you?
